Slightly peculiar, but no doubt welcome news to all those who pre-ordered their iPhone 4s; Apple's email says that delivery "will occur on June 23rd." That's a day early, fact-finders. Pity the poor fool who didn't pre-order, eh?


The email sent from Apple to all iPhone 4 pre-order customers, below:

Dear Apple Store Customer,

You recently received a Shipment Notification email from Apple advising you that your iPhone has shipped.

This email is to confirm that your delivery will occur on June 23rd. Although Apple and FedEx tracking information may currently indicate a later date, you can check the FedEx website the morning of the June 23rd to track your package to your doorstep.

In the event that you will not be available to accept delivery on June 23rd, it may be more convenient to use our pre-sign delivery option by visiting our Order Status website at


The Apple Store Team

Many Gizmodo readers have forwarded their emails on to us, and checking Twitter many others have received similar emails. Looks like the pain of pre-ordering with either Apple or AT&T last week has paid off early. [Thanks, tipsters!]
