Deliveries Apple Watch

Like all of us at iDB, you’re likely waiting on pins and needles with regard to your Apple Watch order. Will you get it on April 24th, the first official launch day? Will you have to wait a while?

Of course, the answer to that question is still up in the air. Many people saw movement yesterday, including credit card charges, and shipping status changes, but none of us at iDB, myself included, have seen an actual “shipped” message as of yet.

In the meantime, I’ll keep watching my orders like a hawk. I find that the best way to track an Apple Watch order is to use the Deliveries iOS app. With Deliveries, you don’t even need a standard UPS or FedEx tracking number to track your Apple Watch order, because it works directly with Apple’s order numbers.

So even if your Apple Watch is stuck in processing, or pending, you can still add your order to Deliveries, and it will track your order for you. You can even set it up to send you notifications when a change in status occurs.

Step 3: Paste your Apple Watch order number in the text input box

Step 4: Tap ‘Apple’ under Best Guesses

Step 5: Fill in info like Email address if not already populated. Skip the Item name, as this will be auto populated with details about your Apple Watch

Step 6: Now you should see your Apple Watch delivery status summary. Tap on the status to view the full delivery status

One thing to keep in mind is that Deliveries’ tracking won’t be accurate until your watch actually ships. For example, I was given a April 24th-May 8th date range for my Apple Watch order. Deliveries will automatically default to the last day of the range, which could be possible, but isn’t necessarily accurate. One of my orders is “preparing to ship” so I’m hoping to be on the short end of the shipping timeline.

What’s your delivery status look like thus far? How are you keeping tabs on your order?

Deliveries is $4.99 on the App Store.

    Parcel is a great “freemium” alternative.

    I’ve been using this app for years and have always loved it. My favorite feature is being able to scan the barcodes of shipping labels to add it to the app. Recently they added push notifications too, which are nice.

  • I have this app and it’s excellent. Freaked me out when it switched to “Delivered by May 8” before it also switched to “Preparing For Shipment.”

    You should mention UPS Choice with the option of doing a will call. Basically UPS holds the package the morning of delivery date at the closest HUB and you go pick it up at 7am local time.

    Delivered works just as good….AND IT’S FREE!!!!

    Stainless Steel seems to be on hold for most people, even though I ordered mine within minutes of preorders opening up :/ waiting for the “Preparing for shipment” status

    Might want to add what country your specifying the price there Jeff, it’s not 4.99 in Canada.

      Obvs they always charge us more, calling it on thw exchange rate lol.. But what they dont get is that our salary isnt adjusted in consequences of the inflation..

  • Aaron McFarland

    Still have not received any update on my Apple Watch order, and I purchased it like a minute after they went on sale.

      Same here

      • William Melendez

        Did your order end up updating after all ?

      • [RΞCØИ1]

        Yeah it did yesterday. Did yours?

  • Shane Sepeda

    I work for FedEx and have seen many people frustrated with tracking their shipments using third party methods.

    It’s honestly better to use the UPS, FedEx, or USPS apps respectively for whichever courier is handling your package. Although the apps can be clunky, they are a lot more accurate.

    • Byron C Mayes

      Yeah, but who wants to keep multiple apps for something so esoteric? Deliveries and UPS Choice (my wine shipments come exclusively via UPS) are all this guy needs.

      • Shane Sepeda

        Tracking shipments isn’t esoteric. Obviously, everyone has different needs, and not everyone will need multiple apps to track. Deliveries is great for simplicity and consolidation, but the courier apps are better for accuracy and heavy shippers.

  • Byron C Mayes

    This is the best multi-service** delivery tracker app. And it has a companion desktop app as well. I wasn’t aware that it would read Apple store order numbers directly. That’s a real plus!

    **Naturally the dedicated UPS app is best for UPS, but only for UPS. If you don’t need Choice or do need other services, this is the best of the bunch.

    I use Delivered! It’s got quick entry, always works, is faster at notifying me of updates than the native emails (sometimes by hours, I’ve had it notify me of a delivery 1 minute after the delivery person got my signature), and it looks like it belongs in iOS 8. Oh and it has customizable notifications. I haven’t tried Deliveries but Delivered! Is the only delivery tracker that has been rock solid for me. It always works.

    Nice! I hope we see a tracking number soon
