    Kiwi checking in - awaiting 8+ 256gb to arrive on Friday. Coming from a 5s, so a considerable upgrade!

    Can't seem to preorder iPhone 8 Plus 256GB or 64GB and pick up at store... Did they just ran out of pre-order pick up stock? or they just don't allow pick up since few days before release in store.

    Thanks heaps, this Kiwi will just have to get used to being totally out numbered :)
    Just have to think of the iPhone X as a Xmas present as no doubt we won't be getting them any time soon.

    For which model?

    These aren't available yet (I've emailed them about the X & awaiting a response), but I've used them for years. There's a bit of a technique to applying the screen protector (instructions in the package), but they're great once applied. They're gel-like, so if you get any small scratches, the screen 'heals' & you'll forget about them.

    They even have case-fit ones that are slightly smaller, to accomodate a case.

    It's all happening! Just got an email from Telstra with tracking number and my iPhone 8+ 256GB is physically here in Australia already. Chance I could get it early?

    Not sure, I was looking at the Watch 3 and I can't do pickup from the Apple Store Friday for that either, strange.

    Ordered a Spigen Liquid Crystal off the US store after I pre-ordered the phone, used them on previous phones and have been happy. For the screen protector, winged it with an iPhone 7 HODA tempered glass (hopefully will line up fine), had one on my 6s and held up great.

    Has anyone who has ordered from the Apple Store directly seen their order status progress past 'Preparing for Shipment'?
    I placed two orders, one for a 8plus and the other for the Watch 3 wifi - both have dates of 22/09/17 for delivery.

    Cool, I figured as much. Last iPhone I ordered was the 6 and I'm pretty sure there was a way to work out your UPS shipping details from your order number or mobile number. I guess I was spoiled then.
    Thanks!

    Interesting. I wonder why the 8+ misses out & whether the X will have it.

    I'm waiting on that blessed message from Vodafone at the moment! Have been watching my 8+ just be sitting at the Sydney airport for the last 36 hours... I gather it will be flown out tonight for delivery tomorrow, like with my previous purchases.

    Arrived this morning! space gray looks great although I have a case for it too so less of a concern. Fast performance and the camera is great from early testing (although my previous standard is 5s so...)
