We keep you informed
Once you’ve placed an order, you will receive an Order Acknowledgement email to confirm your order details, including shipping and delivery estimates for each item. Once your item has prepared for shipment and ships, you will receive a Shipment Notification email with carrier and tracking information.
You can also visit online the Self Service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to view the most up-to-date status of your order. Sign in with your Apple ID and password to get a summary of orders placed in the past 18 months. You'll see your order number, the date and time the order was placed, the status of the order, estimated shipping and delivery dates, the shipping method, and package tracking information for items that have shipped. If you choose to view the order details of an order, you'll see additional information including any gift messaging, product engraving, product customisation, and more.
Shipping and delivery estimates
The 'Ships' timeframe is an estimate of when the item will prepare for shipment and ship from our warehouse. The items on your order will ship as they become available. You can ship each item to a different address, and choose up to 15 different addresses per order.
You can pre-select a different delivery time for each eligible item on your order.
- Items that ship within "In Stock" are estimated to ship the same or following business day.
- Items with longer estimates ship from our warehouse within the timeframe indicated (e.g., 7-10 business days).
- Custom-configuring your Mac or personalizing your iPod may take additional time to prepare for shipment, and will increase the 'Ships' timeframe.
The 'Delivers' timeframe is an estimate of when the item will be delivered to your shipping address after it ships.
All estimates are based on business days.
Scheduled Delivery with pre-selected delivery time windows
You can pre-select a delivery time that is convenient for you. Some limitations may apply.
- Standard Delivery. Delivered within 1-3 days after your item is shipped. Free.

- For postal deliveries, no signature is required and order status tracking is not available.
Some products may not be eligible for deliveries with pre-selected time windows.
Note: Scheduled Delivery with pre-selected delivery time windows may not be available during product launches.
Available to Ship Immediately
Eligible products are those on the store which have special messaging ('Want it on ...') on the product pages advising we will ship your product the day you place your order, once it is placed in the correct time frame.
Place your order before 12 noon and enjoy same business day shipping on eligible products (upon credit approval).
Orders placed after 12 noon are shipped the following business day. Payment must also be approved by noon for items to qualify.
Custom-configured Macs and personalised iPods are not eligible for same day shipping.
The delivery address on the order must be accurate.
If there is an unexpected demand for a product, the shipment could be delayed.
While Apple will make all reasonable commercial efforts to meet its "same day" shipping commitment, Apple cannot guarantee to do so. Same day shipment means your order will leave Apple on the day the order is placed. Delivery times vary according to location. Particularly, the following post codes will require extra time for the shipment to reach its destination:
- 508265 to 508415
- 508416 to 508419
- 508431 to 508433
- 508449 to 508451
When can I expect my order?
Once your order has been handed over to the carrier for delivery, you will receive a shipment notification email with an estimated delivery date. This is automatically calculated based on distance from the warehouse location to your address.
Delivery will take 1-3 business days after the order has shipped. All delivery lead times are estimated.
How can I track my order?
As soon as your item(s) have shipped, we'll send you a Shipment Notification email that includes the estimated delivery date and tracking number. You can also view this information by signing in to online Self Service.
If you ordered multiple items, you may receive separate shipments.
In addition to email notifications, you can request text message updates in Checkout.
What to Expect
Once your order ships, we'll send you a text message. The text message will include your order number and a link to the tracking information.
You can receive text messages on the day of delivery or after your item has been delivered, depending on your shipping method and carrier. Texts are sent between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. in your time zone.
How to change my text message preferences
You can edit your mobile phone number at any time by logging into your account and editing the Shipment Notification preferences for your order.
What time will my order be delivered?
For orders shipped to a residential address, deliveries are normally made between 9 am and 9 pm Monday to Saturday.
For orders shipped to an office address, deliveries are normally made between 9 am and 6 pm Monday to Friday, 9 am and 12 pm Saturday.
For orders that are shipped for a pre-selected time that is convenient for you, you can expect your delivery shipped by Yamato at the time specified in one of the time windows as follows:
- 9:00am - 12:00pm
- 12:00pm - 5:00pm
- 5:00pm - 9:00pm
You can check the estimated delivery date and carrier by visiting our online Self Service for the latest status of your order. Apple and its carriers are unable to provide an exact time of delivery. Our carriers cannot make a call prior to delivery.
Can I have my order delivered to an address other than my home?
For your convenience, you may prefer to have your order delivered to an alternative address such as your office address. If you choose to deliver to your office, please include the business name in the shipping address. Please note, if you choose this option, goods may be left with reception.
Delivery to a PO Box is not permitted for security reasons.
Signature on delivery
Most of our shipments contain valuable computer equipment. If you will not be home to accept delivery of your product, consider shipping your product where someone you trust will be able to sign for your package. For your convenience, you may prefer to have your order delivered to your office address. If you choose this option, please include the name of your business in the address. Please note, if you choose this option, goods may be left with reception or the Mail Room. Delivery to a PO Box is not permitted for security reasons.
How much am I charged for shipping?
It won't cost you anything - Apple Store pays for standard delivery.
Please note that applicable shipping fees apply to Apple Print Products.
I need to change my shipping address.
If you have not yet received your shipment notification you can amend your details online via our Self Service website. If you are unable to modify your shipping details here, please contact the Apple Store Customer Service.
If your order is already in transit, please call the Apple Store Customer Service.
I will not be home on the scheduled delivery date.
As our carriers require a signature on delivery, the carrier will leave a calling card if you are not at home. Apple will also send you an email advising that our carrier was unable to deliver your order. You can then contact the carrier directly to schedule a new delivery appointment or alternatively amend your delivery address.
What happens if my delivery goes missing or is damaged?
In case of any problems with your delivery, Apple will be in direct contact with the carrier to resolve the issue as quickly as possible with as little inconvenience to you. We will make every effort to contact you and keep you informed of the progress of our investigation and where appropriate, deliver a replacement. If you have already received your order and find that it is damaged, please call the Apple Store Customer Service.
