I'm getting a bit of buyers remorse with my color selection of my XS which I bought it through Apple with the ATT next program.
Tomorrow is the last day for the 14 day return period so can I just return the original phone to swap out the color? Or do I have to return it and re-start the whole process with ATT?

Any insight is appreciated before I make the trek to the store.

You will have to return and restart the process since you are using the Next Program. Sometimes it is instantaneous, sometimes it takes time to update.

What color did you get and what color are you exchanging it for?

I ordered both the Silver and Gold XS Max. I opened the gold and wasn't really feeling the different shades depending of the angle so went with the silver; that was 2 days ago. I'm going to relook the gold to see if I feel any differently..

I'm sitting on this same fence. I went with the space gray again this year after a space gray iPhone X and I'm kind of leaning toward the silver now. Only thing holding me back now is the risk of scratches on the stainless band. I still may do an exchange just for a larger capacity. I opted for the 64 GB because I only use about 40 GB of storage but it would be nice to sync all of my videos and stuff back to my phone to have them with me.

If tomorrow is the last day of the return period, am I still able to return the phone tomorrow or is today the last day I'm able to do that?

If it’s in a case, what difference does it make?

I'm the opposite, thinking of trading my silver max for a grey one. Silver just seems a bit foofy because the phone is so large, where with the X I loved it. The black is nice and stealth. But I haven't decided yet, I should just get 2 of em so I can swap out based on my mood, lol. Kinda sad but that's what I did with the AW, have a black SS and a silver SS that I frequently change.

If you got the phone on the 21st then tomorrow is the last day. You can initiate an online return and from what others have said it resets you to an additional 14 days, and can still return it in store.

I exchanged space gray to get silver on my Xs Max. The space gray just didn’t look/feel like I premium phone to me. It is just something about that classic stainless steel bezel lol

I originality bought the Silver XS, but decided to get the Gold XS Max. I didn't think I'd like or want to get the Gold one. I always wear silver.p, but I love the Gold Max more every time I look at it.

You will get marks on it, no matter how careful you are. All I did was put my phone in a case the second I took it out of the box, and I saw tiny scratches. I noticed the same on the X I had previously. I went out of my way to not scratch them, yet they were still there.,

I got the gold but was thinking of getting the black.

For others who asked, I don't use a case so the color is pretty important to me.

If you are suing 40 I would not chance being limited at 64
