The first few Apple Watch Series 7 orders have begun shipping to customers and will be delivered on Friday, October 15th. Customers who pre-ordered the laptop with launch day delivery have begun receiving shipping notices.
Apple is known to use a two-step delivery process for launch day orders. First, the products are delivered to the shipping partners with clear instructions not to deliver the goods before the set date. This allows shipping partners to transport the packages to the last mile distribution centers in advance, maximizing the chances of timely deliveries. In the second phase, the products are released for delivery to customers on the set day – in this case Friday.
Pre-orders for the Apple Watch did not open until October 8th. This was the first time Apple officially unveiled the product’s pricing and configuration options. You can check the prices in your country for the different options available in our post here. The 41mm GPS-only aluminum GPS model starts at $ 399.

If you had the chaos of pre-ordering and secured an order with launch day delivery, you should have received a hint that your Apple Watch Series 7 will reach you on Friday. Those placing an order now will likely have to wait a while before the product is shipped to them. If you prefer a physical queue instead, the Apple Watch Series 7 will also be available in stores from Friday.
