    After the mess they had with the iPhone upgrade program last year I hear Apple is planning some sort of priory program for folks in this program this year.

    If it's true having priory for the iPhone 8 will be a good thing if the supply issues they are going to have are true.

    That would be nice seeing I use iUP but I just can't believe rumors about some priority program this far in advance. I'd honestly settle for their web site working properly so I can reserve the phone I want after crawling out of bed at 3:00 AM.

    Still, I'll keep my fingers crossed for us. 🤞🏼

    Folks on the program were not able to reserve their phone on the first day of availability. They never really fixed the issue but got all of us phones on opening day. But for awhile it seemed like they were ignoring their arguably most committed customers.

    Supply issues? Ugh. Will Apple be going the Google Pixel route this year?

    Well they changed the app to allow us to order through it with special upgrade page. Guess that’s how they’ll do it

    ugh I remember last year, I was extremely upset as I didn't think I would be able to upgrade to the iPhone 7 Plus until much later. Thankfully they sent a email a few days later allowing me to get my iPhone on the day of release. I was actually the first one to get my phone at the store. Which made me go from being very disappointed to very happy.

    Still on the fence bout the new phones, guess I'll wait till the event and see how the new phone is going to be. This year, for some reason I'm not that excited about the whole thing. If the iPhone X doesn't have Touch ID, I don't know if I'll be a fan of it. I think I would prefer Touch ID over Face ID. Unless it works really amazing.

    I have a question with the IUP. If I have a current device payment plan with at&t can I still finance an iphone on that same line?

    Well I remember months ago in prep for this release I went on to apple.com to see if I can get through the steps of it with an iPhone 7 plus and it seems like it let me. I didn't go far enough to actually get the device but I am curious if this would work.

    Why can't you have two payment plans? One with your carrier and one with Apple?

    Not sure. A Verizon rep informed me that I couldn't put two device payment plans on one line, but could open another line with a device payment plan but I would lose my Grandfathered "Beyond Unlimited" plan

    I got the iPhone upgrade plan last year with the 7 Plus. This may seem like a stupid question but do you have to have the original box and accessories to turn in when giving Apple your old iPhone?

    You do not. You only need to turn in the phone.

    Does it let you proceed though??

    So if anyone gets a delay Apple says to call them and mention the IUP. They will connect you with someone who will help you get a phone on launch day maybe. If anybody tries this I would love to know what happens.

    I got a message in the upgrade process that I had a balance with Verizon for the number that I used. I was still able to complete the reservation. I plan to change it when I get to Apple on Friday. I don't want to upgrade the line that's there as that line does indeed have a payment balance. It's not an iPhone though it's an S8+.

    Im going to tell Apple I want a new phone number on a new line. There should be an option to get a new line added during upgrade but there isn't. Seems the apple process won't let you change the phone number used for the upgrade to anything else except the phone number attached to the iPhone being upgraded.

    That is what I figured! What does apple care that you have another payment plan with a carrier...They are two separate companies

    That is awesome. You get the 8+?
