The first of the Touch Bar-equpped MacBook Pro units look as if they’re about to ship on Friday, November 11th.
A number of users have reported that Apple has started changing the status of several preorders from “processing” to “preparing for shipment”, which typically happens in the days before it ships and delivers orders to customers.
Reports from the first preorder customers estimated a ship date of November 11th, while others were quickly notified that their orders had been pushed back 2-3 weeks to 4-5 weeks after the units became available via the Apple online storefront.
That means that the first MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models could arrive in customers’ hands as soon as this week in markets where next-day and weekend delivery are available, and for some possibly earlier than originally expected.
Users can log into their account on apple.com or through the Apple Store app to view their current order status. Earlier this week we noted that Apple had started charging credit cards for some MacBook Pro orders, signalling that the company will soon begin shipping the device to customers.
As always, stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
