While most customers have yet to receive now shipping emails from Apple or have their order status changed to "shipped," users who pre-ordered with Apple can use a trick to find their UPS tracking number. Please remember that this trick only works for orders from Apple.com!
Simply fill out the Track by Reference form on UPS.com, and use the phone number associated with your order as the reference number. If that phone number does not work, keep trying any phone number that could be associated with your wireless account or the number you used to upgrade. Sometimes it could be the phone number attached your Apple ID, or your billing address phone number.
If none of your phone numbers work, try entering your Apple Order number. Some have reported success by leaving off the last two characters of their order number, but we found ours by entering the entire number.
Don't panic if UPS.com can not find your shipment, Apple is still sending these out! As a last resort, you can sign-up for a free My Choice UPS profile that notifies you of all packages headed to your address.
Once your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus ships out, the device is automatically added to your support profile page on Apple.com. We should note that although Apple is already shipping these packages, don't expect to receive them until the September 16th.
This trick works for all Apple online orders including Mac, iPad and iPhone. If this helped you, please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for more Apple news, videos, and tutorials.
