    Welcome to the thread for the Best Buy 2018 iPhone pre-order thread.

    If the rumors and leaks are true; which iPhone will you be getting? And are you using the Best Buy App, BestBuy.com, Preordering at a Best Buy store or just camping out on launch day.

    Let us know.

    This thread will be updated on new information when the New iPhones are launched.

    Official Apple Announcement September 12, 2018.


    If everything is true I’m going for the highest GB iPhone(even though I don’t need it), the largest phone size and the gold color.

    They finally added the watch section for coming soon so they will probably add the phone.

    I ordered from Best Buy Last year and they promised launch day pickup. Didn't come for two weeks, walked over on launch day to Apple store and picked it up. Best Buy also wanted like an extra $100 bucks or something.
    I stopped buying anything from them after that.
    DONT ORDER FROM THEM - you have been warned

    Epic FAIL for Best Buy tonight. The "coming soon" didn't change at 12AM Pacific nor after a few minutes of refreshing/starting from the top. Ended up ordering at Apple within minutes. Fortunately it seems either Apple had the inventory or I was fast enough as the Order shows Sep 21 (at least for now).

    It won't let me pre-order.. it tells me "Pre-order now".. then once I choose the one I want, it says "Coming Soon" no matter what I pick. :/ get it together, Best Buy!

    Well I ordered through the app. I ordered an iPhone XS Max 512 Gig (Space Grey) for me and the iPhone XS 64 Gig (Gold) for my mom. Receive date says the 21st for both. Verizon was going to delay until early October as was Apple (up at 4 AM EST doing this). I also ordered the Apple Watch 4 Cell version. Ship date (as opposed to receive date) says the 21st.

    I usually haven't had Best Buy miss their estimated dates. The other two options would have delayed the XS Max (at least from what they estimated) so lets see how BB does. And I have Best Buy credit that doesn't work elsewhere (yet, the card is supposed to become a real CC soon).

    Best Buy doesn't actually guarantee those dates. order elsewhere as a backup is my advice.

    No idea why anyone leverages Best Buy for preorders. Look back at posts from previous years, they don't deliver on their promises very often.

    The delivery dates I was getting from Apple & Verizon for the XS Max 512 GB were in October so I went with the promise that might be broken over the declared we are going to ship these later than you would like.

    Not to mention that I had available Best Buy credit for the taxes and such. If I bet wrong I’ll know better next time. They shipped the NES Classic on the day that was promised and I got the new Sony 1000 XM 3 Bluetooth headphones the day before they said (not a iPhone or NES Classic level shortage but still back ordered). So they’ve built up a bit of good will for me so far ...

    I see the full price option on their website. Did Best Buy bring back the option for an unlocked, full price option? Or is Apple still the only way?
