    My order arrived today without warning. Been stuck at Shipment picked up since Feb. 3. Ordered on Jan 19, so it took a little less than a month. Estimated delivery date was supposwd to be March 1. On the package, it says break bulk express, so maybe it did get shipped in bulk.

    For those who ordered online, would you know if the education discount applies? I was looking at that option at first and was thinking of ordering via the store til I realized I needed a new laptop sooner than later. :/

    Recently ordered online but got a custom Mac Mini instead— it changed to Shipping after 4 days. Also purchased via the Education Store. Will probably get the custom MBA after

    Got the MBA M1 (base specs) from https://www.apple.com/ph-k12/shop. Availed of the educational price (because I'm enrolled at a Harvard EDX online course. Probably doesn't matter though if you really are a "student", because they don't require any proof of it during the ordering process (or even during delivery). Ordered late March, delivered via DHL mid-April. My credit card didn't get charged until the day Apple actually shipped it out of Singapore. Tracking is pinpoint; just noticed that from SG, it transited to HKG, then to here. I don't know why it did that.

    Apple Ph operates in SG (that is our hub I think) since we don't really have official apple stores locally.

    for a decade I have ordered almost 2 dozen Macs through the Apple PH store, including 6 large 27 inchers for myself, friends, and famly. So far so good! Few delays but most of them came earlier then the ETA posted by Apple. :)

    Hi! I recently ordered from Apple PH an upgraded MBA M1. It arrived after 15 days from China. I availed the educational discount. I received the invoice via email. Today, i received my card statement, upon checking, it appears that there was an additional 10% charged on top of the item price. Anyone had this before and what step/s did you do with Apple? My previous orders did not incur this additional 10%. Thanks

    Ordered June 11, got picked up June 12, ETA is June 28. It’s already June 25 and still no update. Looks like it will be on schedule this time.

    Apple came through! Maybe there’s no processing over the weekend. Got an early morning text that said my MBA’s for delivery today. This is the first one that arrived on schedule.

    My current status now is Customs Updated - Shipment has been given a release by Customs.

    Does this mean I'll get mine tomorrow? :">

    What does the charge look like? Maybe they charged the edu discount back?
