It’s already September 23 in Australia and New Zealand, also known as the launch day for AirPods Pro and Apple Watch Ultra. Customers in these two countries who pre-ordered the ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2 or an ‌Apple Watch Ultra‌ are starting to receive their new devices.


We’ll soon begin to see the first hands-on images of the ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2 and ‌Apple Watch Ultra‌ from Australians and New Zealanders receiving their deliveries, with photos appearing on social media sites alongside first impressions.

With no Apple retail stores in New Zealand, Australian customers will be the first to be able to pick up the ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2 or ‌Apple Watch Ultra‌ at an Apple Store, and Apple is expected to have some stock for walk-in purchases. Availability in Australia usually gives us an idea of ​​what to expect from other stores around the world.

In the United States, the ‌Apple Watch Ultra‌ is out of stock through mid-October, and other countries are experiencing similar delays. The ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2 are more widely available, and it shouldn’t be too difficult to get them in a store on launch day. Orders placed now on the website will be delivered next week.

After New Zealand and Australia, sales and deliveries of the ‌Apple Watch Ultra‌ and ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2 will begin in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and eventually North America. Apple retail stores will open for their regular hours around 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. for device sales.

Do you have a new ‌Apple Watch Ultra‌ or the ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2? Be sure to share photos and let us know what you think in the comments below.
