The first iPhone 14 pre-orders are now available ahead of Friday's release ...

The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to be released on Friday. Regardless, the first pre-orders have begun shipping to early shoppers. This does not mean you should expect your iPhone 14 pre-order to arrive sooner than the September 16 release date.

First iPhone 14 pre-orders now shipping

If you check your order status via the Apple Store Online or Apple Store app, you will likely notice that your iPhone 14 pre-order is still preparing to ship. Apple waits until closer to the official delivery date of a new iPhone to update the shipping status via the UPS website. However, if you go to the UPS website, you may keep an eye on the progress of your order and see it progress along the way to your state.

To do this, eitherenroll in the UPS My Choice platform or use the Track by Reference Number option. The reference number is likely to the phone number listed on your Apple order or your order number without the last two numbers. Not all iPhones have been shipped to UPS yet, however, so be sure to keep checking throughout the week if you cant find your one.

UPS has also made changes to the Track by Reference Number feature, limiting the display of reference number tracking details for better security. Today, you should also enroll in the UPS My Choice app.

Once you find your iPhone 14 on the UPS system, you may keep it as it travels around the world and ultimately makes its way to your door on Friday and September 16.

While you wait for your iPhone 14 to arrive, you still have a few days to get some new equipment in preparation. It''s unlikely that your existing iPhone 13 case will fit your new iPhone 14. It''s also important to remember that Apple no longer includes certain accessories in the box with new iPhones.

Have your iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone Pro Max been shipped yet? Keep in mind the iPhone 14 Plus will be released later than the rest of the lineup, with the first pre-orders expected on October 7.

My iPhone 14 Pro Max has been sent my shipping email. I hope it will arrive early!
