    What do you think is the best way to secure an iPhone X on the first day it's released. I know obviously pre ordering on October 27th but does anyone have any helpful tips? Thanks

    Order within 60 seconds. Pretty sure you'll get it on launch day

    Get Google Chrome open, have your credit card ready, have one hand on the keyboard and the other on your mouse.

    Good luck!

    How is that possible with all the information that needs to be filled out? I use the Apple iPhone Upgrade Program and have to complete all that stuff.

    Do you honestly think that if anyone had a definitive answer to that, they'll share (especially if they want one themselves)?

    Given that it's (apparently) going to have a very limited supply, I'd suggest adopt every deity known to man as your own, and start praying...to all of them....constantly...and just maybe...

    My initial reply was going to be "Don't look at it with your eyes open".....

    Best you can do is be first in line at the Apple store. Problem is they may not even get any X units or maybe not the color or memory size you want.

    The best way is through the app store and pay for it in full. They will be the lucky ones.

    We need a definitive guide for this (US store). Apparently, you use the app with a 'favorite' all ready. (that's as much as I know). We need a guide, and we need to practice. After all..... we are the champions :D

    You get pre-approved ahead of time. My IUP took less than 30 seconds to check out and select a store for launch day pickup.

    I’m not getting one, but here’s what I would do if i did. Favorite the configuration I want on the app, then when it’s time click on that under I think account and use Apple Pay to quickly checkout.

    Just pre-order it like anyone else.
    Everyone has the same or equal chance to get one.

    In the app on iPhone you can favorite a configuration, I.e. Verizon 256GB silver iPhone X and it shows up under the “account tab”. You can click on that and pretty much go straight to checkout.

    YES! thanks!

    This seems to be the way. Saves you time. Is there anything else?

    There was a link in the Apple Store App for the 8/8+, I'm sure it will be available for the X as well next month.

    Just know no matter how quick you are, so many others have already finished ordering by the time you even get the app open.
