Apple Begins to Ship iPhone 5 Pre-orders

Apple Begins to Ship iPhone 5 Pre-orders

The initial batch of iPhone 5 orders are starting to ship out from China. Apple is using UPS this time to ship the iPhones.

While Apple has not sent out shipping emails or updated the status online to "shipped," users who ordered with Apple can use a trick to check their tracking number on UPS.

Note that this trick only works for orders from Apple.com

Simply fill out the track by reference form on UPS, and use your phone number associated with your Apple ID for 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.

If none of your phone numbers work, try entering your Apple Order number, but leave off the last two characters.

Don't panic if UPS could not find your tracking, Apple is still sending these out!

Try signing up for SMS / Text alerts on UPS.com site all those who ordered on Apple.com, the text shall tell the exact details where the phone is right now. For all those who see iphone stuck in Alaska, they will find their phone is lying safe in Louisville, KY.
