In preparation for Iphone X arrival I ordered AirPods - they were due for delivery yesterday. I live in Weliington. I tracked their progress from Sydney to Auckland overnight arriving 0534am and then they were send down to Christchurch where they spent most of the day eventually to go back to Auckland in the late afternoon. I had an email from Apple in the early evening apologising and saying that my shipment may be delayed!
I see this morning they have left Auckland again hopefully on their way to Wellington but who knows! This has been with DHL
