I have the Apple Store app installed, i tapped iPhone X and went through all the steps, but the Add To Bag button is disabled. Question is, if I get to this page at 11:58AM... after 2 minutes, will the "Add to Bag" button auto-enable itself so I don't have to pick color, storage capacity, one time payment, etc.? Or do I have to relaunch the app? Or can I cheat and hit "back to Payment" then select "One Time Payment" to go back to a 'refreshed' screen with button enabled?

Does anyone have experience or knowledge about this from prior iPhone launch preorders?

Save it to favorites from as far as you’ve gotten.

Mine is saved here, with all the options as I want, as far as I’ve been able to go.

When I open the Apple Store app, it goes right to my account, with the phone front and center, and I can continue from there.

As above, you will want to add the one you want to get as your favorite. The add to bag is disabled and will be enable when the iPhone X launches at 12:01 am PST

So your saying I can open up my favorites at say 11:59 am, and wait until 12:01 am and it will auto enable itself? Or will I have to keep hitting "back" "favorites" "back" "favorites" until the button enables?

Well no one has access to apple.com or Apple Store App at 11:59 pm pst. When the clock hits 12:01 am you can check the Apple Store app, once you manage to get it to work you simply go to your account then tap on the phone that appears on your favorite. Then start the process.

*Note this was for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus pre-order. It will be no different for the pre-order for the iPhone X.

Thanks, this is what I was missing. So staying on the screen after Apple Store launch won't do any good. It's more of a "keep relaunching app until store is back open"?

Would be nice if they just made it so that you could open up the App, sit on it while it's closed, and when the time comes... just auto-refresh and you can go on with your purchase/favorites.
