As the topic states, did you get your preorder in as you expected to or are you faced with "oh too late shipping delays?"

I did the preapproval for IUP to save time. That backfired. My iphone’s Apple store app never updated when the store went back online. I rebooted my phone and reinstalled the app. Nothing for a good 10 minutes. Then when it worked I was only able to get the black when I really want the silver. Maybe I can switch in store.

It really sucks how once you preapprove you are tied to buying from your phone.

Purchased a T-Mobile 64GB Black X at 12:02. Date originally showed as 11/3, but quickly switched to 1-2 weeks after I completed checkout.

Ordered a second one for in-store pickup on 11/3. I'll cancel my first order and I couldn't be happier!

Yes I got my Nov 3rd ship date. But oddly I was trying to go with the 64GB model. Thinking it wouldn’t sell out. And it did. So I ordered the 256GB for next Friday. More than I was planning on paying but I’m happy lol.

I’ve had good luck with previous orders and read through other people’s woes in years passed; this year it’s my turn to be disappointed. Nothing about this order went smoothly. Had them favorited in the Apple store app on our two iPhones, kept getting error pop-ups, finally got the order in about 50 minutes after it went live, delivery date in early December ☹

This year, my preordering delivery expectations were not met. Last year I preordered Verizon JB 7+ model on Apple Store App around 3:11am(delivered few days after launch). This year rolled the dice and tried for T-Mobile model (which is the only online preorder model that doesn't ship with activation verification lock). I got 2 Apple Store order confirmations emails 3:06am, and delivery dates already were at 1-2weeks Nov 10-17.

I ordered 256gb silver model on IUP for T-Mobile. I couldn’t order until 20 minutes after it started because the store didn’t come up for me and when it did, the order errored out twice!

However, I haven’t received an order confirmation email and it’s not showing up on my account in the app. But, I did take a screenshot of my order after checkout so I have an order number.

Has anyone else not received an order confirmation yet?

Purchased mine right when the store came up. Wasn’t lucky with a launch day delivery unless Apple ships faster. Had a 2-3 week wait time

I did the same thing and got the same dates. I am hoping the dates get moved up like in the past.

My date was pushed from November 10-17 to 17-24. Didn’t get the confirmation until two hours ago. The delay is fine with me, gives me a chance to cancel after watching all the reviews.

I couldn’t get it to load on app or website. Great internet speeds here, just bottlenecks by the “great Apple” and their magical suck.

After 1 hour said f it and went back to bed. Contemplating getting a S8 plus and leaving Apple. The last year of products from them have been a Charlie Foxtrot in release, quality, or software and to be charged above and beyond for this is insulting at best.

Yes I know I’m hot about this, but it gets old to keep having Apple reps tell us how to order and reliably get it wrong.

it was frustrating at first:
Apple website crashed.
Sprint site crashed.
Best Buy site Crashed.
My phone is broken, so I couldn't use the Apple Store App.....

I was f*cking pissed....but something told me to try again, and again.
finally got through on Apple.com
