Knowing full well that the world would wake up today keen to know exactly where their pre-ordered iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices are at this exact moment, FlightAware has launched a tool that will tell you – provided your device is still in the air.

Due for general release tomorrow, nervous buyers wanting to make sure their device is en-route to their hands simply need to tap in the UPS tracking number to figure out which plane is carrying their device as the ‘departure scan’ figure in the UPS tracking number should match the departure time for a flight listed on the page.

Of course, watching your plane’s transit isn’t actually going to make your shiny new device arrive any earlier, but it might make you feel a little more relaxed to know it’s on the way.
