Apple Watch Ultra 2 Pre-Order Delays
The Apple Watch Ultra 2 is experiencing delivery delays for some buyers who have already placed pre-orders, as reported by MacRumors. These delays are not uncommon for popular devices, as seen with Google’s Pixel phones in the past. Delays for the Apple Watch Ultra 2 are currently reaching up to 7 weeks, with pre-orders not expected to be delivered until almost November.
To avoid further delays, it is recommended to place your pre-order as soon as possible.
Shipping Delays for Specific Configurations
However, not all configuration options for the Apple Watch Ultra 2 are experiencing shipping delays. Only certain combinations of the watch and specific bands are affected.
Some band choices will still allow for shipping on the launch day of September 22. Certain combos, such as the Alpine Loop band in Blue (medium/large size) and the Trail Loop band in Orange and Beige (small/medium and medium/large sizes) are currently seeing longer shipping times.
At the time of writing, there may also be delays on other band options. Therefore, it’s important to keep in mind that the bands you choose for pre-ordering the watch may cause a delay in receiving the watch since the two items will ship together. Pre-orders for the Apple Watch Ultra 2 can be made through Best Buy, Apple directly, and Amazon.
