Apple made the iPhone 8 and Apple Watch Series 3 accessible for preorder just yesterday, but the first requests are as of now getting ready to get dispatched. People who have ordered the first phones have seen their requests change from handling to “Preparing to ship” in front of the September 22nd date.
As per 9to5Mac, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K all went up for preorder on Friday morning at 12:01AM PT/3:01AM ET. Supply held solid for most items, with select iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models slipping to 1-2 week shipping times then 2-3 week estimates. A few iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models, however, remain accessible for launch day shipping. With respect to Apple Watch, LTE models are right now sitting at 3 a month for most of the SKUs.
Despite the fact that requests are presently “Preparing to ship,” you shouldn’t take this as any sign that you’ll get your gadget sooner than the September 22nd estimate from Apple. The company quite often holds shipments until the point that the set release date, however, a few requests have made it through that before.
Now, the Apple TV 4K is not yet planning to dispatch for the to-be users, but that will probably change within the near future.
