Customers who want their Apple products delivered before or on Christmas Day can opt for free 2-hours shipping if they place their order by 4 PM Christmas Eve. These apply to orders containing an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac in the Apple Online Store. Customers must reside in an area where 2-hour delivery is eligible.
Apple doesn’t implement the 2-hour courier service to separate orders of AirPods, accessories brought from the Online Store and engraving on Apple products, as these things take longer to get delivered. But if customers order their AirPods together with another Apple product, then they are eligible for the courier delivery. Typically, Apple charges $9 for the courier service, which may be a bit too high for those who don’t prefer an in-store pickup.
If a customer placed an order that’s other than an iOS device, Mac or an Apple Watch, then they can still receive courier service but they have to pay the standard $9 fee. All regions nationwide except for New York City, Las Vegas and the state of Hawaii have a deadline on December 24th, at 4 PM local time. The 3 cities aforementioned have courier services on Christmas Day.
In conclusion, if the customer doesn’t live in an area that has courier services, then they can pick up their item in a local Apple Store. Apple has made it easier for last-minute Christmas shoppers to get Apple products easier.
