Apple began shipping pre-orders for the first iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro before Friday’s release


The first iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro pre-orders have started shipping to early buyers. As always, this does not mean that you should expect your iPhone 12 order to arrive before the October 23 release date.

If you check the status of your order through Apple’s website, you’ll see that your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro is still “preparing to ship”. However, if you visit the UPS website, you can track the progress of your order with a few simple steps.

To do this, either enroll in the UPS My Choice platform or use the “Track by Reference Number” feature. The reference number is possibly the phone number listed on your Apple order or your order number without the last two digits. Not all iPhones have been transferred to UPS yet, however, be sure to check all week.

As always, Apple does not update the shipment status of new iPhone orders through its website until we are close to the official release date. Finally, keep in mind that just because orders are already shipping does not mean that you should expect your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro to arrive early. Apple works closely with UPS to ensure that shipments arrive no earlier than Friday, October 23, regardless of the approximate date indicated in UPS.

On the other hand, as we detailed yesterday, the first iPhone 12 accessories have started to reach customers. This includes the MagSafe cases as well as the MagSafe charger. You can take a closer look at the new item in our full coverage here.
