The long wait for an Apple Watch has just gotten a little longer. Any 42mm Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport order made from the U.S. online site today is slated to arrive sometime in July. As of yesterday, the site quoted a June delivery timeframe.
A number of other countries, like Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, China, and the United Kingdom are also showing the new delivery date for the larger watch.
If you’re looking to purchase a smaller, 38mm version, the situation is a bit better. Apple is still quoting a delivery timeframe of June. That could signal the larger watch version is more popular with buyers.
Apple has been able to ship a number of watch orders to customers before the estimated ship date.
Earlier this week, a new report said that the shipping delays were caused by faulty haptic motors. Just to note, no faulty units were ever shipped.
The first wave of orders began arriving to customers last week.
Prices range from $349 for the 38mm Sport model to $17,000 for the most expensive 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition.
A mid-range Apple Watch collection, with a sapphire display cover and stainless steel exterior, ranges from $549 to $1,099. Apple also offers a number of other additional bands for the watch.
You’ll need an iPhone 5 or later to interact with the device.
