    What's the best way to refresh the Apple Store App in preparation for the iPhone X pre-orders?

    Is the best way to close and open the app until the clock hits 12:01AM PDT and proceed with your pre-order?

    Or does switching tabs between "Account" and "Shop" refresh the page automatically?

    The Apple Store will be down. So you just have to keep hitting the Store App Icon until you get in.

    This will not be pretty.

    Close it altogether from the app switcher or is that not required?

    Close it all together. If left in the back ground you will get the same "store is closed" .

    It is not like when you go to the full internet site where you can refresh, but I have had the best luck using the App the last 4-5 phones.

    I hate to give my secrets away but I use both my iPhone and iPad to try to get in. Make sure you have set what you want as "Favorite". Have all your shipping and CC info in your account and ready to go! If so you can finish using touch ID. Might want the 3 digits on the back of the card.

    I am an IUP type. I can’t find a way to save the phone as a favorite, whenever I go through selecting the X I want it take me to a how are you going to pay for it which takes me to an IUP page that then takes me to a page on the X that says order on Oct 27. What am I missing or is it just not a choice for IUP X folks. I had no problem selecting a case as a favorite. But the heart that you use to select it as a favorite never appears.

    Does the IUP page that will be open then give you a chance to save your favorite?

    For the iPhone 8Plus, I was able to get pre-apporved ahead of time for the phone I wanted 2 days before pre-orders went live. Then all I needed to do once pre-orders went live was to select if I wanted to pick it up or shipping and confirm my CC number for the associated taxes.
