It’s already Friday, September 22, in New Zealand and Australia, which means customers in those countries who pre-ordered the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, Apple Watch Series 9, Apple Watch Ultra 2, or AirPods Pro with USB-C case are starting to receive their devices.

If you’ve already received your new iPhone, let us know in the comments below and be sure to share photos and your first impressions!
There are no Apple retail locations in New Zealand, which means customers in Australia are always the first to be able to purchase new devices or purchase an iPhone at the Apple Store. The in-store stock in Australia will provide an insight into what we can expect at other Apple Stores around the world.
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models are sold out during the pre-order period, and orders placed now from the online Apple Store won’t ship until late October or even November for some devices. The standard iPhone 15 models are not difficult to obtain.
If you miss pre-orders, purchasing from the Apple Store or another location like Target, Walmart, or Best Buy is the only way to get a new iPhone on launch day. While retail stores are expected to have stock, the popular iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models may be in short supply and may sell out quickly.
After New Zealand and Australia, sales and deliveries of the new iPhone 15 models and new Apple Watches will begin in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and finally North America. Many Apple Stores around the world will open early at around 8:00 a.m. local time to allow customers to select reserved devices and make walk-in purchases.
Make sure you keep up MacRumorswhere we’ll go hands-on and open tomorrow, followed by a deep dive into the new hardware’s feature set, camera comparisons, and more.
