iPhone 4S: How to Check If Your Order Has Already Shipped

If you are one of the millions that has pre-ordered and iPhone 4S, you’ve probably been going crazy with the anticipation. If you ordered through Apple, you’ve probably found yourself trolling the Apple Online Store’s “Your Orders” page. Well, if you’ve resorted to that, you may have come across a certain “Preparing Shipment” statement when trying to check if  your iPhone 4S has shipped.

That of course doesn’t help you in the slightest. Fortunately, a reader over at TUAW decided to take matters into his own hands and found a quick way of finding out where your new iPhone 4S is.

Here’s what you have to do.

Head on over to UPS’ website, you can find it here,  and then click on “Track by Reference.” Once you’re there, you can use the phone number you registered with at Apple.com and it should pull up your tracking information.

This does not work for international orders so apologies to those of you outside of the United States.

So, give it a go and in no time, you should have a new page to obsess over until your iPhone 4S finally shows up on your doorstep come this Friday.
