I485 is considered abandoned once you leave the US by air.

APIS records the entry/exit of travelers and generates/updates your I-94 (arrival/departure record). Basically, it's automated when you leave by air.

Edit: But hold on to any records you have as well (i.e. boarding pass) just in the rare event of an error. It does happen.

Hard to predict USCIS timelines, but it will probably in the matter of weeks to months for USCIS to acknowledge the withdrawal via mail. They may even notice the departure record (automatically abandoning the I-485) before that. haha

Only after the I-485 is denied would unlawful presence start accruing.
