After indicating they were “getting ready for delivery” earlier this week, the first 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro orders have now officially begun shipping. The first orders for customers will arrive on Tuesday, October 26.
Meanwhile, delivery estimates for new orders shipped today through the Apple Store Online continue to slide toward 2022.…
If you check the status of your order through Apple Store Online or Apple Store, some users they see that their pre-order for the MacBook Pro is still “ready for delivery,” while some people’s orders have already been transferred to “delivered”.
If your order still appears as “preparation for delivery” through the Apple Store, you can check it status via the UPS website. Some people see their Apple Store order as “ready to ship”, even though the package is already in the UPS system.
To do this, log in to the UPS My Choice platform or use the “Track by Reference Number” function. The reference number is probably the phone number listed in your Apple order or your order number without the last two digits. However, not all orders have been transferred to UPS yet, so be sure to keep checking in the coming days if you can’t find yours yet.
UPS has also made changes to the “Track by Reference Number” feature to limit “the display of reference number tracking details for improved security. This means that your best bet these days is to sign up for the UPS My Choice platform.
Delivery time for new orders continues to fall
Meanwhile, as the first pre-orders begin to be delivered to customers, Apple’s delivery estimates for new orders continue to decline and getting closer to 2022 for some configurations.
For the 14-inch MacBook Pro, both “reverse” configurations now show estimated shipments between November 16 and November 23. In the meantime, selected custom configurations with higher specification options should be delivered by December 16th at the latest.
For the 16-inch MacBook Pro, all three “stock” configurations display estimated delivery dates between November 23rd and December 1st. Selected higher-ranking configurations are ordered even more, and some display delivery dates on December 23rd.
