    I just got a notification through my Capital One app that Apple has billed my credit card the full amount for the phone. Doesn't that usually mean it ships today or tomorrow? (crossing my fingers)

    Nope. They authorize the payment early so that any issues that occur with said process can be handled so that shipment isn't delayed next week. Your phone will arrive on the shipping date given to you on your pre-order...not before. I don't think any early shipments have been reported since the iPhone 5...and even then, it was only a single day early, not a week.

    When I preordered it say ship by 9/25. Is that when I get the phone or is that the ship date? Sorry for the newb question but I have never preordered before. I've always wait at the store.

    This is what mine reads...not sure what "ships by 9/25" would accurately indicate. Did you order via carrier or directly from Apple?

    Same thing for me. Apple usually charge cards around Monday or Tuesday.

    Yes it's not uncommon to see a hold early then it drops off. It will say pending for a day or two then go away and the amount is no longer held against your limit, etc. Then when it's time to ship it will appear again and move over from pending to a charge.

    Beware: Apple Starts Charging for iPhone 6s Preorders

    Of course it shouldn't matter. One would have to be nuts these days to use a debit card online!

    Why on earth is this considered a "beware" type headline? You paid for a product...why are people shocked the money is coming out? And I use my debit card online all the time, nothing "nuts" about it.

    If someone used a debit card, they might not have the funds in the account that is attached to the debit card. Maybe they were anticipating that they wouldn't need to move the funds over until next week. That's all I can think of.

    A person should refrain from buying/pre-ordering something they do not have the money for...if it hits their account with insufficient funds, the only person to blame is themselves, regardless of when Apple takes the money. The process is nearly identical every single year.

    (And yes, I know you weren't validating this stuff, but just offering a theory, I was speaking in generalities).

    They charged my credit card today too. Tomorrow your order status will probably change from "processing items" to something like "preparing for shipment." They may ship early but they instruct UPS and Fedex NOT to deliver the packages early. Your local Fedex or UPS distribution center will probably get the phone by Tuesday of next week, but they will hold it and deliver it on 9/25 at the earliest. You also can't pick it up early from the distribution center. At least Fedex wouldn't let me do it. Last year I had to wait for them to deliver my 6 Plus on the Friday launch day even though they received it at the local distribution center on Tuesday of that week.

    I preordered through Verizon. I've been waiting for them to charge my card so I know my order is on the way. I didn't order until 5am PST on the 12th and my delivery date says 7 Oct. Fingers crossed that it was a stretch and they have enough phones to send mine for launch day as well. If not, I may wait in line on Friday for one. Good luck everyone.

    A debit card can be used as credit too in most cases right? Though I put mine on an actual credit card just in case it'll accidentally double bill or some other oddity that would tie up my finances.

    They can take the money early, actually... I prefer it. The sooner the better as I've already budgeted it prior to purchase.

    You will not get your phone on 9/25...this kind of stuff is why people on iMore suggests so heavily that you do your pre-order directly through Apple, sot here is none of this kind of confusion.
