I'm curious to know how many returning IUP members that went through the pre-approval process earlier this week were able to secure a launch day phone.

Sig. I feel I had a double huge advantage since the store came up at 3:03 and I only had to click 3 buttons to order the X.

Pre-approved Monday. Had two iPhones in hand opening and force quitting the Apple Store app until I got through. Once I did, it was a simple tap to "Complete Purchase" and Touch ID to pay. Order completed at 12:03pm PST. Super simple. I feel the iUP members had a slight advantage.

I was pre-approved Monday and was able to get an order in earlier today for launch day delivery. Still, damn near had a heart attack after the Apple Store app took about 5 mins after 12:01 PT to start working. After I got in, I actually tried to change my shipping option to in-Store pick-up but was rushing through the order and ended up getting it shipped to me instead. Either way, I’m thrilled that it’s scheduled to arrive on launch day. Crossing my fingers that all goes well!

I did. It was a really great idea for Apple to set up the pre-approval ahead of time. I am pretty sure I would not have had such good luck if I would have had to go through all that on the 27th.

I did the pre approval and I’m getting a launch day delivery. I had to wait almost an hour for the confirmation email but I got a launch day delivery.

After waiting till 7 minutes after to get the app to go live I was able to get launch day. It was all pretty quick once the app started to work.

IUP, pre-approved, waited anxiously for 3:01am, refreshing the Apple Store app... but I couldn't access it until 3:13am.

By the time I got in, it was too late, and I'm stuck with a Nov. 17-24 delivery window now.

I'm happy for you guys that got it, but IUP is not a silver bullet for launch day delivery.

In at 3:03 out by 3:05 using iPhone
Would have been faster but took screen shots to capture order number.

Apple store App on iPad never connected

Apple.com web site on MacBook Pro stayed on opening page with refreshing until 3:11 when I went to search for
Confirmation email which arrived 3:13

Last years order was on iPad and iPhone wouldn’t connect. Go figure
