    Who has managed to get their pre-order in?

    This is the first time I've tried to pre-order in a number of years but I got what I want! I normally just go into the store on day one and pick up my phone but this year I felt lucky!

    Anyone else have luck?

    Got mine. Surprised at how much is still available for day one. Some years they’re gone in minutes. So far only seeing the 1TB models slip to October after 25 minutes

    I feel your pain. That's why I gave up trying to order online in the past and always went into the store on day one to get mine without problem. However, the menagerie of animals I have here got me up for their breakfast, so I thought i'd chance my arm on it anyway. I got lucky for the first time in many years.

    Wish I could enjoy the preorder but alas, I have to go to an Apple Store in a week to get a phone. Hopefully they'll have what I want...

    Ordered a 13 Pro Max - Graphite - 1TB and my delivery is set for Oct6-Oct11. I placed my order at 7am Central too. I wonder if my configuration is just super short on stock because even store pick up wasn’t available on the 24th.

    I see all the Apple Stores in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area have all colors of the 256GB and 512GB iPhone 13 Pro Max shipping in the beginning of October now with no in-store pickup available for any of those. Doesn't bode well for me since I planned on walking into an Apple Store to pick one up on release day.

    Nice I guess I’m the lucky one. All good, I can wait for the first week of October. Hopefully it’ll ship earlier.

    I thought about cancelling mine because it’s a 2-3week wait and just to go the Apple store next week Friday and try get the 1TB. Not sure if it will be possible as when I picked in store pick up they are waits till end of October.

    How about going to the store on day one and seeing if they have the phone you want, and if they do, great, cancel your pre-order. If they don't then you haven't lost your place in line.

    I thought the same thing. I’m in the same boat as you but Sierra Blue 1TB. Recon they’ll have stock on lunch day in store or just wait 3 weeks lol ?

    I’m a bit afraid due to Covid on how long the lines may be and risking my health

    I've pre-ordered through iPhone upgrade program but it's a 3 weeks delay so I cancelled it. I've been seeing the model I like available for in store pick up on the 24th but I keep getting this damn error trying to upgrade through iPhone upgrade program 'your iPhone pre-order has expired' and can't proceed and pre-order. It's frustrating how messy their iPhone upgrade program has been this year. Never much of an issue in the past. Anyone running into the same issue? I'm wondering if I can just pre-order full price now and when I pick up in store do the iPhone upgrade program upgrade then, is this possible?

    That’s awesome though. Any progress is good. I just ordered my case and screen protector for it.

    They finally took my money today and it's still showing as 'preparing to ship' with a delivery date of Friday. I'm unsure if this is usual.

    Perfectly normal. I know it’s been shipped because I track all my shipments via FedEx, ups or usps. So I get a notification when a shipping label gets created for me. I have yet to get a shipping notification from Apple even though FedEx already has it in their possession.

    I've no idea how the pre-orders work as the last time I successfully pre-ordered an iPhone through Apple was about seven or so years ago. Since then, i've just gone into the store on release day and walked out with my chosen phone every time., I thought i'd try pre-order this year just in case, being that i was already up at 5am for work.

    No worries. I get lots of packages which is why I know. It’s very helpful so you don’t get any surprise shipments and that your not aware of
