Today was supposed to be a day of celebration, a day when millions of people around the world got their hands on Apple's newest iPhone. Sadly, some people are saying their orders have been delayed at the last minute, leading to some very angry customers.
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.https://twitter.com/evitajin/status/1175062321204514818
Here's one email, which was posted on Twitter:
Thank you for your recent order with the Apple Store. We know you're excited to pick up your new product.
Unfortunately, due to some last minute logistical issues, your order will not be ready for pickup during your check-in time.
As soon as your order is ready for pickup, we'll let you know via email. We expect this to be no later than Monday.
We apologize for the delay in getting your new product into your hands. We're working quickly to resolve this issue.
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.
