Apple has launched two-hour shipping on items in its store in “most metros,” according to its website. The service costs $5 and will be available for a limited time only. The deliveries can be made in a no-contact manner and utilize verbal confirmation instead of signature proof, at the shoppers’ request.
Shoppers can still request free next-day delivery on any in-stock Mac, iPad, iPhone, Apple TV or Apple Watch, with two-day delivery on other products. Additionally, Apple offers in-store pickup at all locations and curbside pickup at select stores. Customers who use any of the in-person pickup options will receive email updates to safely guide them through the process.
The retailer also had added a feature that helps shoppers ensure their products arrive by Dec. 24. The page lists each Apple product and the final date eligible for guaranteed standard delivery.
