the USCIS doesn't respond to the fact you submitted biometrics. Your appointment letter should have been stamped by the USCIS official that took your photos and fingerprints. This is the only receipt/acknowledgment that you have for submitting biometrics. The next item you get or should learn about is whether or not your case is transferred or an interview is going to be scheduled. I would allow at least 4 months. Just my experience...

Depends on the state you're in. I'm in CA, had my biometrics in early May, and
only got my AP approved two weeks ago. (Still no word on I-130/I-485).

Other people who have had the exact same timeline as me in other states have already
gotten their green cards.
