Sorry if this was posted. I searched with a variety of different terms and could not find my answer. Then decided to create an account to ask since I have primarily just read the forms to always get answers.

I have my check in time to pick up my phone tomorrow. I know I will not be able to make that time by about a half hour or hour. Will that matter? Does this jeopardize my pre order?

I can not imagine that would be the case and willing to wait in line longer if i am late..Any insight would be appreciated!

Thanks!

You are allowed to be late but not early. They will hold it but you may have to wait in a line.

But I'm guessing you can still get into the pre-order line rather than the general/non-preorder line, which should speed things up.

From past experience they will let you in the preorder line, however, they will push you being people that are there in their own time slots.

If you made a unpaid reservation, they will hold it for 4 hours past the appointment.

If you paid for an order, they will hold it for a few weeks.

i'll bd arriving 30 minutes before my time. Apple better not be douchy about it
Depends on how they triage.
If 10 people are scheduled at 8am and you show up making it 11 those names may or may not
get called before you.

In reality some always come early and others always show up late.
They'll mix you in somewhere to keep the flow going.

No worries, no stress
