For those of you that managed to get in an online iPhone pre-order (via the online Apple Store) on June 15th before the pre-order Armageddon, you have a bit of good news in your inbox. Our tips box is full of future iPhone 4 owners who report having an email from Apple stating:

You recently received a Shipment Notification email from Apple advising you that your iPhone has shipped.

This email is to confirm that your delivery will occur on June 23rd. Although Apple and FedEx tracking information may currently indicate a later date, you can check the FedEx website the morning of the June 23rd to track your package to your doorstep.

Sounds good to us. Besides, a few thousand people activating a day early can’t hurt the chances of AT&T’s system actually staying up for the day. If your new iPhone does show up on the 23rd, as opposed to the 24th, make sure to send us a note and let us know what you think of the new device.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
