The iPhone XS is already being delivered to some lucky customers on the far side of the globe.

Apple fans in the U.S. still have over 12 hours to wait before their iPhone XS pre-orders start being delivered, but in New Zealand that pre-ordered the iPhone XS, XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 are already reveling in their new devices.

New Zealanders have begun posting images of their shiny new iPhones to Twitter, giving everyone else waiting in line at Apple stores some serious gadget-envy.

Customers in the U.S. should start seeing their pre-orders for the iPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 4 arriving tomorrow morning. Depending on how busy your delivery person is though you might not get it until later in the afternoon.

Some customers that pre-ordered the new devices won’t get theirs for a couple days. Shipping times on the iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 started slipping just minutes after the devices went on sale last friday.

Apple stores will have limited supplies of the new devices in stock on September 21, so even if you haven’t got your order in yet there’s a chance you might be able to get your hands on it on launch day.
