You Can Still Buy These Apple Devices As Holiday Gifts
If you’re buying Apple devices as last-minute gifts this holiday season, there’s an easy way to figure out if you still have time to get them delivered before the big day. When ordering directly from Apple’s online store, you can quickly check to see if the iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and Apple Watch you need are available for delivery on time so you can pack them up.
Go to Apple’s Holiday Shipping page to see if the gadgets you need are delivered on time. The “Order By” dates on the page reflect the last date you can place an order on the Apple Web Store to receive your Christmas gifts.
Too late for these items shipped from Apple
At the time of writing, the following gadgets were listed as unavailable for shipping by Christmas:
- iphone 14 pro
- iPhone 14 Pro Max
- AirPods Max (engraving)
- AirTag (engraving)
Some other options, like the iPad mini or non-engraved AirTags, are approaching deadlines for online orders on Apple.com. This data is constantly updated, so you should definitely check this page before placing an order.
If your favorite gift doesn’t arrive on time, you can always check store pickup to see if the product is available at your nearest Apple store. If you don’t want your Apple products engraved, this is a good alternative.
If you can’t find your item in the store or on Apple.com, it’s time to check with third-party sellers to see if they have it in stock. Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and other stores in your area should have availability information on their websites. To avoid shipping delays, especially if you’re too close to a holiday, order in-store pickup whenever possible.
