    Sometimes when a vendor "authorizes" a charge it appears to be a charge on the card, when it's not. Apple was authorizing cards before they shipped. The CC company leaves it on for a few days because they are expecting the charge. It drops off when the charge doesn't happen.

    When I buy gas I often see an Apple Pay charge of $95 before I start pumping the gas. This is just the authorization which is replaced with the actual charge when the transaction is complete.

    Just double checking since you have an 8, does it come with iOS 11?

    Mine is in Ontario California. If you call UPS there is a recording saying that Apple shipments cannot have the delivery address changed, and that shipments will be going to the original address the order was placed with. But when I spoke to a woman she said you can absolutely change the delivery address and it will be delivered on time. I hope UPS does not screw this up for millions of people with conflicting information.

    I hope yours doesn't turn out like my brother's 7+ last year.

    Yeah wondering the same. Ultimately, I had it changed before any origin scan, so I'm thinking I am in the clear.

    Mine is still scheduled for pickup at 830 at my Apple store. Let’s hope the line isn’t too crazy

    I am in the same boat, I hope there are not long lines. I feel pretty confident that my order will be available. We should know by the time we wake up in the morning

    Me three. I’ve had terrible luck with preorder since the 6 launch. I know the 8 is not as crazy as any of those since a lot of people are drinking the kool aid for the X, but I’m still a tad worried.

    This is the first time I’ve done in store pick up. I chose this cause of all the previous bad luck.

    Ah that makes sense. I have always had good luck, but this is my first in store pick up in years.

    My phone has made it to the local distro center. Super excited to get my slate grey 8 in my hands after seeing the pictures. My 6 is starting to lag with ios 11.

    Nah I’ve never had a problem before. Unless Apple changed the rules for this launch. We will find out!

    You should be. But what I’m saying is there’s a UPS recording stating Apple will not allow delivery changes. I am not sure if ups has ever stated that before with other launches. But when I spoke to a live person she said that recording is false. I think I may leave a pre-authorized signature at my home just in case.

    I ordered yesterday since it moved to a 9/26 delivery date.

    Just updated to preparing for shipment and my credit card was just charged.

    Tomorrow?

    Same for me. Apple might want to get as much out for the weekend to brag about sales
