Customers around the world are now receiving shipping alerts for their shiny new Apple product orders. We've seen shipping notifications for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, as well as Apple Series 4.
Although this year there is less hype for the new iPhones compared to the drastically redesigned iPhone X generation last year, it is nevertheless exciting to see the last stepping stones appear before the launch of Friday 21 September.

Analysts expect a strong sales of the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max despite their high price. Many people buy iPhones on monthly upgrade plans where the real cost of the devices is hidden & # 39; be, which certainly contributes to the price-inelasticity of the iPhone question.
It is less clear how many people will opt for the 5.8-inch iPhone XS. There are fewer obvious new features to attract customers who already own an iPhone X and many owners of older iPhones can instead opt for the iPhone XR, which will go on sale at the end of October. The XR has a module with one camera and uses LCD instead of OLED screen technology, but is considerably cheaper to buy, has the latest A12 chip in it, comes in a number of cool new colors and actually has a larger screen than the iPhone XS.
The Apple Series 4 will also be launched tomorrow and has received almost universal praise. The attractive new health features, edge-to-edge display and redesigned body are expected to be a great success this holiday season.
For customers who have not yet ordered an iPhone XS, new orders in the Apple Online Store are currently being reordered for 1 – 2 weeks in most configurations. If you're still trying to get a unit on the release day, the Apple stores have a stock of launch days and you can be lucky by checking external resellers like couriers.
