- Early iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro pre-orders are shipping.
- The phone is scheduled to arrive on Friday 24th September.
- Delivery dates have slipped back to October for late orders.
Apple has started shipping the first batches of iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro pre-orders to customers. The device will arrive on September 24, and isn’t expected any earlier.
U.S customers who made a pre-order with Apple on Friday can enter their reference number on the UPS website, or enroll with the UPS My Choice service. The reference number is your phone number, or order number (excluding the last two digits). This reveals that the device is now shipping to some customers.
Customers in the U.K can enter the reference number through DPD, the carrier that Apple uses for deliveries in the country. The delivery process may also differ for other countries and regions.

Apple usually updates the Order Status page later in the week, nearer to the scheduled delivery date, so the status may not change to ‘Shipped’ just yet.
The first batch of devices will arrive to customers on Friday 24th September. Delivery times for all iPhone 13 models have now dropped into the latter part of October, and early November.
