The Apple Store app now offers same-day delivery service through Postmates, the same company bringing Big Macs to New York City homes and Starbucks coffee to households and offices in several US cities. To be clear, the two companies have been working together long before this, and you can actually order Apple products from Postmates' iOS app if you live in one of the many locations where the company operates. This new on-demand delivery option, however, is available only to San Francisco Bay Area residents willing to pay a fee to get their items ASAP.

So long as you live in the region and what you're buying is available from a nearby store, you'll see an option that says "Delivers Today within x hours." The value of "x" varies and could be an hour or four, based on the examples we've seen. After you order, you'll get notifications containing the package's estimated delivery time and tracking number, though you can track it live directly on the Apple Store app. Cupertino hasn't officially announced the service yet, but the driver that dropped off Mac Rumor's order said it's brand new and has just begun today.
