Guaranteed shipping services
Where available, you can also choose a faster delivery method for each item on your order, for an additional fee:
Courier Delivery → Delivers on the same day, within two hours (available during business hours on select items, to certain zip codes)
Guaranteed Next Day Shipping → Delivers in one business day
Delivery times vary according to your selected delivery address, availability of your items and the time of day you place your order. A signature may be required for delivery.
The ‘Ships‘ time is an estimate of when the item will leave our warehouse. For example, if an item displays "Ships: 1 business day" the item will leave our warehouse 1 business day after you place your order. While Apple works hard to ship every order as quickly as possible, personalized, custom-configured, and more popular items may have longer ship times.
Occasionally, we will confirm ship and delivery times, then learn we are unable to fulfill the order due to low product availability. In these rare cases, we will notify by email of the new ship and delivery times.
The cost for shipping is calculated and displayed on the Checkout page before you complete your order. Courier Delivery cost includes tip. Please note that applicable shipping fees apply to Apple Print Products and can be ordered from the Photos app for Mac.
You can find delivery costs at checkout, on the Order Confirmation email and online when you view your order on the Order Status website.
Average transit time is 2-5 days.
Carriers deliver to Culebra and Vieques twice per week.
Overnight shipping is available to some zip codes for an additional cost.
This option is no longer available. If this is your first time selecting an Apple Store, our product pages will display Pickup: Check availability. Click this link, enter the zip code or the city where you'd like to pick up the item, and click Search Stores to check availability.
If you’ve previously selected an Apple Store, our product pages will display your chosen location. You can click Check another store to check pickup availability at a different Apple Store.

Items marked Available Today will usually be ready for pickup within an hour. In some instances, you may also be able to select a window of time to come to an Apple Store to pick up your order. This Check-In Window will ensure that your order is readily available shortly after you arrive. All you have to do is check in with a specialist when you get to the store. If you’re unable to come in during this time window, you can still pick up your order, but wait times may vary.
You'll receive a notification email when your item is available to pick up. Please wait for this email before coming to the store.
If you would like someone else to pick up your items, select Someone else will pick up these items. To pick up your items in an Apple Store, you will need to bring the order number and a valid government-issued photo ID. If you have designated an alternative pickup contact, they will need to bring the order number and a valid government-issued photo ID.
Once your order is placed, we send information about your order by email. The email you receive depends on whether you chose to have the items delivered or picked up. If you have multiple items on your order, you may receive additional emails for each item.
The order acknowledgement email provides a summary of the items on your order. If you chose to have an item delivered, the order acknowledgement will display the delivery address and a Delivers date. You can click this to view your order status in online Order Status. For pickup items on your order, the email will display your selected Apple Wholesale Store location. If you have designated someone else to pick up the item for you, the email will also display your pickup contact.
If you chose to have an item delivered, we'll send a shipment notification email when the item leaves our warehouse. This email includes the carrier name, tracking number, and a delivery date. You can click the tracking number to track your package using Apple Wholesale Store's online Order Status or enter the tracking number on the carrier's website.
If you purchase an Apple Store Gift Card, iTunes Gift Card or Apple Music Gift Card by email, we'll send you an email notification once we send the gift card to the recipient.

What to Expect
Once your order is shipped or available for pickup, we'll send you a text message. This will include your order number and a link to the tracking or pickup store information. We will also send you texts on the day of delivery or after your item has been delivered, depending on your selected delivery method, country and carrier. You may receive 1-4 text messages per item on your order.
Changing Text Message Preferences
You can edit your mobile phone number at any time by signing in to your account and editing the delivery or pickup notification preferences for your order.
Carrier Delivery Options
Apple chooses which carrier will deliver your shipment, and some of our shipments require a signature. Your Shipment Notification email will tell you whether a signature is required. The carrier may also require a signature at their discretion. The carrier may make subsequent delivery attempts before returning the shipment to Apple. Once your order has prepared for shipment or has shipped, we are unable to change the shipping address.
If you are unavailable to provide a signature, Apple offers three easy options for you to receive your package.
Option 1: Pre-sign with Apple once your order has shipped
There are two ways you can Pre-sign for your shipment:
Click the Pre-sign for this shipment link in your Shipment Notification email
Visit online Order Status and click the "Pre-sign for this shipment" link
Complete and print the Shipment Release Authorization form. Leave the form on your door for the carrier, prior to 8:00 a.m. on the day of expected delivery.
You can specify a preferred delivery location (e.g., front door, back door, immediate neighbor, or building manager). If you provide an address other than the one specified on the package, someone must sign for the package.
If you'd like to pre-sign for more than one shipment, simply print, sign, and leave a Shipment Release Authorization for each package.
To ensure safe and secure delivery of packages, all deliveries are subject to the driver's discretion, and a driver may require signature, even if signature is not required by Apple. If you are unable to access the Shipment Release Authorization form, call Apple Store Customer Service at 1-800-676-2775 and let us help!
Option 2: Sign the Delivery Notice to release your shipment to your address, an immediate neighbor, or a building manager
If you did not pre-sign for your package through Apple, and you were unavailable to provide a signature, the carrier will leave a Delivery Notice on your door after the first delivery attempt.
You can sign the Delivery Notice, specify a preferred delivery location (e.g., front door, back door, immediate neighbor, building manager), and leave the notice on your door prior to the next delivery attempt.
If you provide an address other than the one specified on the package, someone must sign for the package.
Option 3: Pick up package at carrier's local facility
After the first delivery attempt, you can request to pick up your package at our carrier's local facility. Call the number on the carrier's Delivery Notice and inform the carrier you'd like to pick up your package in person.
To pick up your package from the carrier's local facility, you'll need:
The Delivery Notice
Government ID (driver's license, passport) that matches the package name and address
Second ID with your name on it (credit card, social security card)
The carrier can release the package only to the person included on the shipping address.
In addition to these options, our carriers may offer additional delivery options, which may include electronic signature or estimated delivery time windows, learn more at FedEx Delivery Manager and UPS MyChoice.
