The next day, iPhone 14 orders will be delayed ...

The iPhone 14 has come to life, but getting one in your hands might be difficult.

It''s no surprise that Apple''s latest smartphone is proving to be a major seller. It''s perhaps surprising that demand is outstripping Apple''s ability to send you one, particularly if you want an iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max.

If you''ve never placed your iPhone 14 order yet, and want to know when your iPhone will drop through your letterbox, we''ve collected the most recent shipping information from Apple''s website here.

In this way, you can select when it''s best to stay at home in the event of delivery, or if it will make it in time for an important date like someone''s birthday or your next holiday.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max versions will be backordered until October or early November, no matter which color you choose, or how much storage you''ve got spec. You''ll be spending at least a month on a new Pro iPhone, and perhaps as long as six weeks if you want the bigger iPhone 14 Pro Max version.

iPhone 14 Plus October 7October 7
iPhone 14 Pro October 17-24October 18 - 25
iPhone 14 Pro MaxOctober 24- 31October 25 - November 1

The good news is that ordering the regular iPhone 14 will not be an issue. It''s possible to get it right now and have it delivered on Tuesday, or today if you''re willing to pay extra postage.

The iPhone 14 Plus isn''t expected to be released until October 7 but it appears that pre-orders are within Apple''s expectations, since they will be shipped the same day. This might change if the 7th comes, so you may want to get the Plus right now.

We advise you to read our hands-on review of the iPhone 14 Plus, or even wait until our full review comes in before making an purchase, so you''re fair informed about the phone''s strength and weaknesses.

If you buy one from the manufacturer now, the Pro models will keep you waiting until the end of October. That''s good news, however, as Apple has anticipated its Pro Max release by mid-November.

iPhone 14 delivery date: AT&T

ModelEarliest estimated U.S. delivery date (color/storage)
iPhone 14September 27 - 28
iPhone 14 Plus October 14 - 21
iPhone 14 Pro October 17- 24
iPhone 14 Pro MaxOctober 17 - 24

AT&T has shortened the delivery times for the iPhone 14 as you may expect it to be faster than Apple. In just a few days, you may also get the regular iPhone 14.

The iPhone 14 Pro is longer waiting (shorter for the Space Black version though), and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will likely not arrive until late October or even later if you want the most in-demand Silver color. However, you may be able to shave a week off of the anticipated delivery date by specifying more storage.

Note that you may also save up to $1,000 on the iPhone 14 via AT&T (opens in a new tab).

iPhone 14 delivery date: T-Mobile

ModelEarliest estimated U.S. delivery date (color/storage)
iPhone 14September 23-26
iPhone 14 Plus October 8-13
iPhone 14 Pro Backorder (September 23-26)
iPhone 14 Pro MaxBackorder (October 13 - 27)

If you want the iPhone 14 Pro Max from T-Mobile before the holidays, you might want to hurry. The earliest that it promises your iPhone will arrive is mid-October, but the Silver and Deep Purple models will take longer.

Two of the available colors'''' shipping dates have already decreased for users looking for a T-Mo-powered iPhone 14 Plus. So watch out if you want a Starlight or a Product RED phone.

The iPhone 14 Pro has announced that it will be backordered too, with the Space Black model taking the shortest time to arrive (September 23 - 26) out of all the standard 128GB versions, which are now scheduled for late October or early November. Meanwhile, the regular iPhone 14 is ready to go right now, with shipping expected to last between one and four days.

T-Mobile has received multiple iPhone 14 deals, including up to $800 off with trade-in and signing up for a Magenta Max program. That''s basically getting an iPhone 14 for free.

iPhone 14 Pro October 7
iPhone 14 Pro MaxOctober 14

With the iPhone 14 Pro having a somewhat delay with October 7 as the delivery date (October 21 in the case of the silver version), however, purchasing higher storage capacities might reduce that wait, with immediate shipping available in some instances.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to arrive a week later than that, or even longer if you want the Space Black or Silver colors.

Verizon''s iPhone 14 deals (opens in a new tab) include saving up to $800 with you trade in your old phone with select unlimited plans.

iPhone 14 delivery date: Best Buy

ModelEstimated U.S. delivery date
iPhone 14Tomorrow
iPhone 14 Plus October 7
iPhone 14 Pro Tomorrow
iPhone 14 Pro MaxOctober 14

Best Buy''s shipping dates are a bit mix-up, but they appear at least more optimistic than Apple''s.

Best Buy (opens in a new tab) promises the iPhone 14 to arrive by tomorrow. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Plus isn''t on sale anywhere yet, so Best Buy has announced its shipping and pick-up dates for the day (October 7).

If you want it in Space Black, Gold, or Deep Purple, you may still get one iPhone 14 Pro model by tomorrow, but the Silver version is expected to arrive by September 26, so it''s not too long a wait if you''re set on that color.

According to Best Buy, the most common Pro Max models will arrive on October 14. However, some may arrive as soon as September 26, given that you''re buying more than 128GB base storage. For these models, you''ll be waiting until at least October 6th.

iPhone 14 delivery date: Walmart

ModelEarliest estimated U.S. delivery date
iPhone 14September 27
iPhone 14 Plus October 14
iPhone 14 Pro September 27
iPhone 14 Pro MaxSeptember 27

Walmart''s iPhone 14 selection (opens in new tab) is keeping the game in most cases. Unless you want it in Purple or Midnight, you''ll need to wait another couple of days. The iPhone 14 Plus isn''t yet out, therefore you''ll be waiting until October 14 for one of those to arrive.

The iPhone 14 Pro will come out by September 27 as well if you want it in Space Black or Deep Purple. The Gold version is currently sold out in its standard 128GB guise. Going for the next size up at 256GB gives you a date of September 29.

Is the iPhone 14 available for delivery?Is it worth the wait?

We like all three iPhone 14 models we''ve reviewed so far, although they are quite different. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models are certainly the ones to get if you can afford them, because they feature all of Apple''s latest upgrades, including an always-on display, a Dynamic Island cutout, and a 48MP main camera.

The iPhone 14 is more like an iPhone 13 rather than a whole new phone, but it is still worth an upgrade if your current phone is aged two years old.
