It’s easy to take services like Amazon Prime for granted, assuming that you can get most things delivered to your door within a couple of regular business days. In some circumstances, you can even get something delivered the same day if you order early enough. What if you could tap your way through the Apple Store app on your iPhone and have something delivered to you in under an hour. That is now possible.

Of course, this comes with a few key caveats. First, for the time being, the super fast delivery is being restricted to the San Francisco Bay area. Second, you can only order products that are readily available at physical Apple Stores in your area. And third, you naturally have to be prepared to pay for this premium service. In the case of Juli Clover from MacRumors, ordering a signing Lightning cable came with a same-day delivery charge of $19.

In the Apple Store app, it shows that same-day delivery means your order will arrive at your door within four hours. However, when Juli placed the order, the package arrived in just 35 minutes.

Get Your Apple Store Order Delivered in Under an Hour

To accomplish this, Apple has partnered up with Postmates, a relationship that officially started today. What’s even better is that you can track your delivery in real time through the Apple Store app, letting you see exactly where your courier is at any given moment. If you’re desperate to charge your iPhone and need that cable right now, you can see how this is incredibly useful. You can even call or text your courier from directly within the app.

No, it’s not quite as cool as having your order delivered by a drone, but it’s pretty handy to have this super fast shipping as an option for your order. If you live somewhere other than San Francisco, you can still take advantage of the Postmates same-day delivery through the Postmates app instead of the Apple Store app. They serve other American cities like New York, Chicago, Seattle, Miami, Atlanta, San Diego, Houston and Charlotte. We imagine the integration with the Apple Store app will expand after they’ve tested it out in SF for a while.
