How Long Does Apple Processing Take

  • #1

Hi guys, I placed an social club with apple for a new iMac on monday (see screenshot). The order status has been stuck on ‘processing’ e’er since. I assumed information technology might be similar that for mayhap 24 hours equally a maximum merely it’s merely sabbatum doing nothing. The iMac isn’t a standard spec (i7, 4gb of video memory and a 3tb HDD) so could this be something to do with information technology?

Thanks in advance, pt6

Hi guys, I placed an order with apple tree for a new iMac on monday (encounter screenshot). The club status has been stuck on ‘processing’ e’er since. I causeless it might exist similar that for perchance 24 hours as a maximum but it’s just sat doing nothing. The iMac isn’t a standard spec (i7, 4gb of video memory and a 3tb HDD) so could this exist something to practise with it?

You ordered Build to social club and now they have to build information technology for you…

You ordered Build to order and at present they take to build it for you…

Helpful.. I thought they grew custom iMacs in a cupboard under the stairs?

For anyone else who might exist able to respond my sincere question “how long does ordering from apple take?” just looking for a ball park idea in terms of plow around as I’ve had stuff from them in the past with an estimated delivery date and it’s taken a calendar week longer to show up – I’ve got some clients waiting on some 4K video work so looking to be realistic with them.

Well it is a light-headed question…

Helpful.. I thought they grew custom iMacs in a closet under the stairs?

For anyone else who might be able to answer my sincere question “how long does ordering from apple take?” just looking for a brawl park idea in terms of turn effectually as I’ve had stuff from them in the past with an estimated delivery date and it’s taken a week longer to show up – I’ve got some clients waiting on some 4K video work so looking to be realistic with them.

They can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, at that place are no difficult and fast rules. Information technology will depend on all sorts of things electric current demand, where information technology’s being built (many congenital in china and shipped just a nMP is built in america), wether apples resource are concentrating on something else, where you lot are based etc etc etc…

You are asking a question that no one can respond with any real accuracy….

I would err on the side of caution and say another calendar week or so but when the nMP came out some people waited for months..

EDIT

Just took a look at your screen shot information technology says delivery estimate 10th-12th of March, and so I’d say nearly a week from now. It also says available to transport 2-4 days so I’d guess tomorrow it’ll be ready or possibly the twenty-four hour period after…

exactly what I was looking for.

Like I said in my reply to yous, I’ve ordered things from apple in the past where it has said “10-12 march” (as an example appointment) merely and then items haven’t showed upwards till the week afterward, hence me coming on here and asking people who might have a fiddling more experience with ordering directly from Apple, and and so I can advise my clients a little more finer/be realistic with them if the new iMac doesn’t show up on the date they’re currently forecasting.

I’ll merely exit it for now, I wouldn’t want to accept upwards too much of your time trolling threads and beingness so smart and clever with people.

Every bit I tried to say

exactly what I was looking for.

Like I said in my reply to you, I’ve ordered things from apple in the past where it has said “10-12 march” (as an example date) simply and then items haven’t showed up till the week after, hence me coming on hither and asking people who might take a petty more experience with ordering directly from Apple, and then I tin advise my clients a picayune more finer/be realistic with them if the new iMac doesn’t bear witness upwards on the engagement they’re currently forecasting.

I’ll just leave it for at present, I wouldn’t want to take up too much of your time trolling threads and being so smart and clever with people.

You will go a unlike answer from everyone, it actually is a crapshoot. As far every bit I can tell from when I have ordered from apple they have been accurate or slightly early. Others volition say they are always tardily for between 2 and 10 days (much as you take said yourself) , everyone will take had different experiences for all of the reasons I gave in my other post.

Your gild slip says it will exist fix for shipping one-time between today and tomorrow then if it still hasn’t shipped past friday yous’ll have cause for business organization until then I’d accept what they are telling you. The apple website too states that if at that place are any issues they will email you with revised dates and times only you could accept looked up that yourself on the apple delivery Q&A page…

Brilliant, cheers for the advice. I wasn’t making out that I have an issue or any complaint, I was just seeking guidance from other people who might have experience of apple.

Accept an A-1 day buddy.

As already mentioned, the commitment date is already provided in your own screenshot.

I would check your credit card to see whether it’s been charged and if there’s a trouble charging the amount. If your card isn’t charged yet there might exist a problem you have to sort out.

Thank you consultant, I retrieve this is possibly the niggle in my own listen as to why I came on request nearly this. If it’s fairly routine for Apple tree orders to exist listed as ‘processing’ for quite a few days then I’m quite confident in their gauge.

FWIW, my last three Macs came from Nashville and I’ve got a friend who’s trying to become out of that urban center to become back home – he’due south been stuck in that location for 3 days, with many of the departures cancelled or delayed depending on the destination.

I ordered ii Dell monitors two weeks ago and it took six days to go out of Nashville – “order being candy” – before being shipped… Proficient luck.
