iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 shipping dates now slipping into October

It looks like you had to be quick to place your order this morning if you wanted to take delivery of your Apple Watch Series 4 on September 21. All the models we’ve checked now show delivery into mid-October.

The story is slightly different with the iPhone XS and XS Max …


At the time of writing, you can still pre-order the iPhone XS in any color and storage tier combination and get a Sep 21 delivery date. The same is true for the 64GB iPhone XS Max in all three colors.

But if you want the 256GB or 512GB models, you’re going to have to wait. These are currently showing Sep 28 to Oct 5 for the 256GB models, and Oct 5-12 for the 512GB models.

If you live close to an Apple store and want to take your chances, you still have the option of trying to buy in-store on September 21, but availability is also likely to be constrained.

The two new iPhones officially went on sale at 03:01 PT this morning, though as usual it was a few minutes later before we managed to get in, with different 9to5Mac writers finding that web or app were fastest.
