The new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is one step closer to shipping for those who got their order in early. Some customers have noticed that their credit cards were charged by Apple today, which means the first wave of shipments is coming.

“Multiple reports collated by AppleInsider and other sources show that Apple is gearing up for the first wave of shipments of the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, in every configuration,” reports AppleInsider.

MacBook Pro shipping dates improve

The first wave of shipments is expected to reach customers as early as November 11. Those who ordered before the shipping estimate slipped should expect to receive them by November 17, though some could be waiting until November 25.

“Users who ordered on the second day after the event, or later, appear to not be getting charged as of yet,” AppleInsider adds. However, some customers have seen their expected delivery dates improve from late December to the beginning or middle of December.

If you didn’t get a chance to order your new MacBook Pro before shipping times slipped, you might be able to get one at your local Apple store soon. It is claimed baseline configurations for both the 13- and 15-inch models will be available in stores on or around November 15.
