    Anyone stupid like me and stay up late to preorder as soon as ordering was available? Lol. Haven’t done that before but decided to go for the “experience.” Turns out I really didn’t need to do that since Verizon still shows that if you order right now it will arrive the 21st. At least for the model I chose. It was very difficult to get through though. The page stuck on “choose which phone you want to upgrade” and I ended up clicking the Chat button. A rep placed the order for me but that took a while too. The rep said he was working with more than one person at a time and so there were long pauses between each text. But now I can say I stayed up late to jump in “line” first thing. 🤣
    I went with the gold Xs 256 GB. I have always had the Plus phones so since there was no spec difference this time I wanted to try a smaller form factor.
    I got the 8Plus last year and decided to wait for the 2nd gen X, so it will be a big change for me.
    This!! Lol i stayed up and hopped on the phone around 11:40 PM (PST) to ask about eligibility for my line and moms. Ended up disconnected as we were about to finalize the first line. Then by the 3rd phone call and at 12:40 AM, had 2 iPhone Xs ordered. One black one silver. Both 256 GB.
    Leaving behind my iPhone 8 Plus and looking forward to a smaller form factor without losing screen real estate.

    I upgraded from a 64gb silver 8 plus to a 64gb Xs Space gray and a black Apple leather case. I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it. I’m about to lose control and I think I like it.

    Pre-approved in upgrade program, order choice in queue.
    Set alarm for 1:59 am Central time. Order complete in about 15 seconds. Gold XS 256 gb.
    Gold breaks tradition - always black, grey, or silver for me. Hmmmm.
    Second order for Watch 4.0, 44m black aluminum.
    Both deliver 9/21.

    Went for watch 3.0 Hermès last year, scratched that itch. Now to sell that one!

    I’ve had the plus phones since the 6s and I’ve decided to downgrade in size too. I don’t think it’ll take too much to adapt. I’ve grown tired of the larger phone and want one I can use one handed.

    I always go with the Black/Space Gray. The color is really moot, since I always keep a case on the phone. As someone mentioned in the past, I did not like the white face, and once I got stuck with a Gold and a white Face, and that drove me nuts. So by default I go Space Gray.

    Got the Xs Max 256 and a Product Red Silicone Case. Also got a Peel matte black case and a peel tempered glass screen protector, but it will not arrive until after the phone.

    I didn’t order anything, but I am going to check out the new Series 4 Watch when it hit the stores.
    Ditto for me.

    I currently have the 42  watch and wear it with a cuff band so I need to actually try on the new 40 & 44 to see which is a better fit.⌚️

    I went from 42mm original series Watch to a 38mm Series 3 and have adjusted with ease. I like the size of the 38mm better, even though I didn’t originally and therefore, if I get the Series 4, it’ll definitely be the 40mm model.

    I’ll probably get the 40 as well. I have the 42 because I like big watches but it basically covers my entire wrist, lol.

    (Pics I had posted when the  watch first came out.)

    Well, phone shows as shipped today when I check my order on Verizon website. It says overnight delivery so I got all excited. However when I put the tracking number in at the FedEx website it says “hold for delivery on Sept. 21st.” Lol! I should know that they’re not going to let anyone get it before then!

    I have a IPhone XS 256 GB Silver pre ordered and ready for pick up on Friday. I am upgrading from my iPhone 7 Plus 128 GB that I had since it launched two years ago.

    I was going to get the 64 GB but in my years of having an iPhone, it’s always better to have more than enough storage that not enough even though I wouldn’t use anywhere near that much storage. The other reason I went 256 Gb is because I won’t be upgrading iPhones again anytime soon ( at least three years maybe longer) with the increasing expensive price points of the phones. Luckily, I had saved up a little to help with the cost this year, but yea. I feel that the XS is future proof enough for me to last three years or longer.

    If I upgrade it will be my Apple Watch series 3 to the series 5.

    I ordered Xs and X Max both in Gold 256 GB with T-Mobile. I have UPS tracking for both already. I also ordered a series 4 Apple Watch for in store pickup Friday at Apple.

    I just order my first iPhone/iPhones. I ordered a 64GB XS Silver for me and a 64GB XS Gold for my wife as well as a Watch 4 for each or us. I was going to wait for the XR but decided to go with the XS. That seems more like a 2 year for me than the XR.

    I ordered an unlocked 256GB Max in Gold yesterday for pickup at a local Apple Store on 9/21

    I think the gold is tacky but it'll do for my 2 week trial.

    Edit: The unlocked phone is an AT&T "version" but is unlocked because I'm paying full price.

    Sadly I returned the XSs and will get the XRs. I was one of the unfortunate persons to have weak signal/antenna issues. Unless a software updates does fix the signal, which I really hope, then I will reorder the XSs.

    Well dang that sucks. Hopefully it all works out. How do you like the watches.

    Watches are backordered until the end of October at least. But even if I would have received them I don't own an iPhone so I couldn't use them. My wife and I are moving over from Android OS that we've been on since day one. Long story short when we were dating an AT&T rep refused to allow us to get a joint plan and upgrade to iPhones back in 2009 so we went to Verizon and got Motorola Droids. Currently Pixel 2 users but no more. Google hasn't made any strides in years and seems to be regressing in some areas.
