Apple Watch Ultra orders are starting to arrive to customers around the world. For customers who forgot to pre-order an Apple Watch Ultra or simply decided to wait, many configurations are now estimated to ship in 3-4 weeks, but the good news is that same-day or next-day pickup is now available at select Apple Store locations.

A quick spot check of Apple’s online store reveals that many Apple Watch Ultra models with the Alpine Loop or Ocean Band are available for in-store pickup today in countries like the US, Canada, and the UK, but Trail Loop models are much harder to find. In-store availability is likely to deplete quickly as the day goes on.

To order a product with Apple Store pickup, add the product to your bag on Apple.com or in the Apple Store app, go to checkout, select “I’ll pick it up,” enter your zip code, select an available Apple Store location , select a pickup date and select a 15-minute check-in window. Payment is made online and a valid government-issued photo ID and order number may be required upon collection.

A few Apple Watch Ultra models may also be available for walk-in customers at Apple Store locations with sufficient inventory, but your mileage may vary. Walk-in customers may be placed in a separate queue with lower priority upon arrival at the store.

The second-generation AirPods Pro are also available for pick-up from the Apple Store starting today.
