    Too bad I didn’t sign up for the Apple upgrade program...
    This is just a pre-approval step. Still have to go through the main "lottery" of getting an actual pre-order done at midnight in a few days. This was just getting the upgrade program stuff pre-approved and ready to go.

    Yeah, I get that. Just be nice to have it all picked out and ready to go for Friday morning. Hoping a get a free moment at work and bust out the order like last year.

    It still gives a head start so you don't have to fill the form and get credit approval. Saves a lot of time and given that preorders are going to be gone in seconds, it's good we have this option!

    Pre-approved for the Silver 256. I'm hoping I can snag one for launch day but not keeping my hopes up.

    I’ll be trying my luck on Friday. I’m aiming for an estimated delivery of 1-2 weeks.

    Did anyone do this with the 8/8 Plus? Just wondering what the process is in the app on Friday since it already lists the phone you are pre-approved for.

    Upgrading from 8/8 Plus will depend on if you are eligible to upgrade via the Apple Upgrade Program. You will need to have paid certain % of money before you are eligible. Not sure if that can be done via the app.

    If you already paid money beforehand while joining the Upgrade Program, then depending on how much you owe, you could upgrade to X.

    Regardless, when you apply, Apple will check for your eligibility whether in the Store app or the website to make sure you can upgrade.

    I probably should have been more clear in my question. I was asking if anyone went through the pre-approval process and ordered an 8/8Plus and how that process went within the app at the time of ordering. Completing the pre-approval for the iPhone X, it shows which device you are pre-approved for. On Friday, do you go through that part of the app, or simply order by going through iPhone, etc. etc.

    I see. I don’t believe the pre-approval was available for the 8/8 Plus. And yes, this Friday you will be able to change the device model even color based on availability if you wish to. Pre-approval is just a pre-approval, you can edit and change before you order.

    I'm pretty sure there was pre-approval for the 8. I'd like to know as well what the process will be like on 10/27 and how to navigate quickest through the app. From the looks of the pre-approval it seems as if u are locked in to whatever choice you made during the pre-approval process.

    You are not locked, it says I can change during the order.

    You're correct. I see that now. Maybe when we open the app that night it'll say what to do to continue with the preorder.

    When I open the app it pops up a banner at the top that tells me the pre-approval is complete and to come back on 10-27 to finish. I assume we'll just tap that message to continue?

    More I see videos the more I want it. Price to me is still crazy but I’ve been wanting a smaller phone from my 7plus & still get a big screen. I’m rolling with 256/Silver and an Apple black folio case

    It’s worth it IMO.

    Instead of ordering through Apple directly, does anyone have experience pre-ordering an iPhone through a tmobile carrier store? Is there any chance they'll actually have it available to pick up on launch date, if I pre-order it in store...?

    I’ve never used t-mobile, but I order every year through Verizon and have never had a problem. Always get my phone on launch day. I’m under the assumption that carriers are rationed so many for preorders and that’s what that have available.

    I have my rep ready to order my 256 iPhone X. Black is my first choice, but white is fine as long as I get it on launch day. She said she will work her magic 😃

    It’s not White, it’s Silver - big difference between the two

    LOL I just picked that up as well after a bunch of my WoW guildies bailed on raiding last night to play it. It's going to cut into my own WoW time for sure. With my luck I'll be playing and forget to stop to pre-order cause it's only Pacific for me and I'm always up at midnight.

    I’m telling you right now that Destiny 2 will eat up your time so put an alarm. Ever since I bought this game on launch day, it’s the only game I have been playing. LOL!
