Apple Announces Deadlines for Holiday Orders

| 20 days ago


It's the first day of December!

This means Apple is preparing for a busy month of fulfilling orders for you and your loved ones to gift on another for the holidays.

In light of the holiday orders, Apple has announced some deadlines for ordering gifts and is even offering discounted same-day delivery for in-shop items.

Check out the deadlines below to see if you can still get your Apple gifts just in time!

Apple Holiday Gifts on Time

The Apple website now includes a Holiday Shipping and Fulfillment page. On this page, you can:

See the latest dates to order your holiday gifts with free shipping. Find specific delivery dates based on your selections and location in checkout.

This website page is available on the Apple website in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, and more countries.

The page provides a detailed list of products and their "order-by" deadlines. The products include the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, Mac, AirPods, HomePod, Apple TV, iPod touch, and Apple Gift Cards.

Apple Delivery and Pick Up

Although some dates have already passed, you can still purchase in-shop with some same-day delivery rates being discounted with Apple.

Normally the fee for same-day delivery is $9, but Apple has announced a discounted rate of $5 on eligible products ordered at an Apple retail store now through December 8th.

When you purchase your eligible Apple product on Apple's website or the Apple Store App, you will get prompted with a same-day, two-hour delivery window at check-out. From here, you can make the selection for same-day delivery. Just ensure that the products you are purchasing are in-stock at a close Apple Store location.

The Apple Return policy for the holidays is for eligible products brought between November 10, 2020, through December 25, 2020. You will have until January 8, 2021, to make a return.
