Embracing the chaos and waiting on painfully long lines to be among the first to own a new iPhone might be a crucial part of the Apple fan experience, but it’s definitely not for everyone. Millions of people want a new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus on launch day but decided to wait in the comfort of their own homes or offices and preorder a new device instead. Does that mean they’re any less anxious to get their hands on their shiny new iPhones? Probably not, and now there’s a way to see the exact location of your new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus as it sails through the sky on its way to your front steps.
Flight-tracking website FlightAware has put together a special page on its site that serves just one purpose: tracking flights that are carrying new iPhone shipments. By looking up your tracking number on UPS or FedEx’s site and noting the departure scan, you can see the exact location of the cargo plane carrying your iPhone, in real-time.
FlightAware’s special iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus page is linked below in our source section.
