Several reports across Twitter reveal some iPhone 11 orders for in-store pickup and shipping have been delayed by a few days. According to an email being sent out to customers, Apple has encountered logistical issues.
Anyway, I'm quite disappointed with @Apple. I supposed to pick up my iPhone 11 this noon, but they had last-minute logistical issues and need to delay it for 1-2 days 😪
Then, what's the point of preorder thing? 🙄Anyway, I'm quite disappointed with @Apple. I supposed to pick up my iPhone 11 this noon, but they had last-minute logistical issues and need to delay it for 1-2 days 😪

Here's one email, which was posted on Twitter:
That's the last thing Apple fans want to see the day a new iPhone becomes available. The good news is Apple is promising to rectify the issue over the next couple of days, but that might be little consolation to fans who expected to get their hands on a new device today.
When the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro went up for preorder, shipments were quickly pushed back into October, suggesting the devices were much more popular than anticipated. Looks like demand is resulting in some unforeseen delays, and here we are.
Fortunately, not every order has been delayed, as people reported receiving their devices without issue. However, that will likely be little solace for those who have experienced a delay. Let's just hope there aren't anymore problems going forward.
