When it comes to Christmas shopping, procrastinating is a long standing American tradition. So to let you know how long you’ve got until you absolutely have to place your Christmas orders, Apple has posted a new guide detailing the estimated shipping times on all of its products.
Apple announced that the Online Apple Store will be offering free shipping on all orders from now until December 22nd, but according to the guide many of Apple’s most popular products need to be ordered a full week before the 25th if you want it to be waiting under the tree on Christmas morning.
Apple has removed the $50 minimum order it usually requires for free shipping which means most orders need to be placed by December 18th unless you’re willing to shell out the extra money for next day shipping.
The guide notes that if you want an iPad mini with Retina display you better hurry and order it by December 5th while the iPad Air needs to be ordered by December 9th to get you in time for Christmas using normal shipping.
All iPods Macs can be ordered by December 18th at the latest, unless you’re customizing a MacBook Air, in which case you’ll need to get your order in two days earlier.
