As iPhone 7 pre-orders began today, MacRumors reports that some lucky customers in the US have already been notified that their orders have reached the “preparing for shipment” stage, ready for delivery on September 16.

Apparently those customers who have pre-ordered via Apple, AT&T, and Verizon have seen their orders prepared for shipment very quickly. In general though, in both the US and overseas, most orders are still processing.

Pre-orders commenced at 12:01 PT today, and it took just 20 minutes for shipping estimates to slip to 2-3 weeks or later. It seems that the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus models are in particularly short supply, with new orders not expected to ship until November in most countries.

Meanwhile, in the US and the UK Apple has suspended Reserve and Pick Up for now, but reservations will be re-opening on September 17 in the US, and the UK. In the US, reservations will re-open at 8:00 a.m., and in the UK you’ll have to get up a little earlier as reservations will re-open at 6:00 a.m.

Reserve and Pick Up is still live in various other countries, including Australia, Belgium, Germany and Hong Kong.

As far as launch day is concerned, Apple will be serving walk-in customers on a first come first served basis, and there will be a separate queue for Reserve and Pick Up customers. In-store stock is expected to be very limited, however.
