Same - Apple Store app is still showing down for me right now. I'm eligible to upgrade (tested on website) if I make one more payment of $56. (Thanks for shipping in NOVEMBER last year, Apple).

You have to pay off the remaining balance up to the 1 year mark.

Just curious - is anyone on the IUP that switched to a FirstNet account? It's administered through AT&T, but the app is telling me it had trouble contacting my carrier.

Just finished my pre-approval. Did anyone have the option to select AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss protection? Someone on reddit did and posted a screenshot, but I didn't get that option unless I somehow missed it.

Restarted the app and I'm through with the preapproval process, so I'm supposedly good to go for Mad Max tomorrow night :D

Let's hope the app store comes up at a proper time unlike the chaos of the past two years (well heck, every year). I got second wave thanks to that, despite being preapproved last year too.

Assuming they will charge my credit card automatically for the remaining 1 payment I have left on my iPhone X before they let me complete the order on the night of pre-order.

Woops! I was reading it the wrong way, I was putting in just the last 4 digits, not the full social. I'm all set now!

You mean like every year for the last decade? Lol.

I ordered for in-store pickup which was available for several hours last year and had no problems. I will hopefully do the same this year.

Noted they seem to have a new AppleCare+ option, with accident loss, etc. $4.17 a month, if I recall correctly). Is that part of iUP (only with) or is that a new option for AC+?

Super easy -- thanks for letting me know the IUP pre-approval process is open.
$1500 for a phone with 256GB, XSMAX, AppleCare and Damage protection not including tax! Yikes.
(With the IUP is only $15/month more than what I was paying for my iPhone X 64GB -- love the IUP program )

I want to upgrade from my 7, which is paid off on the Apple Upgrade Program. But when I log in, it gives me the run-around to re-enroll, but when I try, it says my phone is paid off. I know this already!! Should I stop by the Apple Store on Thursday and see if I can do it there?

Thought it would be easy again this year, but it's not looking like it. It says my phone isn't even part of the upgrade program, but it is, haha. I did get it swapped under AppleCare+ once, so they must've not registered the new phone's SN in the system. On hold with Apple now. Anyone else ever notice this after an AppleCare+ swap during the year?
