The latest date to purchase a product and have it delivered in time for Christmas has been shared by Apple. However, in most metro areas, Apple is offering pick-up or three-hour courier delivery on purchases, through Christmas Eve.
For a variety of reasons, including the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, finding stocked items is expected to be challenging. So much so Apple has started its Christmas Returns policy a little earlier this year. Items that are received by Christmas Eve can be returned by January 8th, 2022.
