If you find yourself in desperate need of a new charging cable for your iPhone then you might be able to get one delivered right to you door in a matter of hours and in some cases even quicker after Apple started providing same-day delivery through Postmates.

Presuming you live in the ideal part of the United States, the Apple Store is now providing a same-day delivery alternative for products such as Lightning cable televisions and, oddly, Apple TVs though you won’t have the ability to get a brand name new Mac Pro delivered utilizing the service. That service is provided by Postmates and is obviously brand brand-new since today. Reports of items arriving hours ahead of schedule are not unusual, though it is as yet uncertain simply where you have to be in order to make the most of the brand-new, very fast delivery.


At the time of writing Postmates offers its service in San Francisco, New york city, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, Denver, San Diego, Orange County, Portland, Phoenix, Austin, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Minneapolis, and Charlotte.

We’ve checked to see if it’s readily available in San Francisco and Phoenix, but not all those are currently live for Apple Store shipments. We suspect the distance to an Apple Store is the key here. so it’s worth providing same-day shipment a shot if it’s something readily available to you. Hopefully Apple will be rolling the service out additional afield in due course.

According to Apple’s own Apple Store app – – on which the new shipment option is presently offered – – we’re seeing an optimum shipment time of four hours before the item is delivered, however going through different social media outlets reveals that orders are arriving rather than that. Sometimes, an order positioned arrived in just 40 or so odd minutes, which is extremely dazzling if you’re asking us. Why? Who wants to drive to an Apple Store simply to pick up a cable right?


With the likes of Amazon likewise offering same-day delivery in certain parts of the country, Apple’s step into the arena perhaps shouldn’t be too huge of a surprise. We want to see the number of items available for the brand-new delivery option increase, but it’s still very early days.
