    I personally like ordering from the Apple website. It's always been a much quicker process for me than going through my carrier and it's more streamlined. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.

    It seems a lot of people on this forum are saying that buying from their carriers are more efficient.

    I agree. This year has been much different compared to others. Verizon for example opened up their pre-ordering window 10 minutes before the iPhone launch and many had quicker orders over the Apple site. I did not encounter any issues with the Apple application.

    I didn't like that I had to enter a bunch of info for my cell provider when I was just buying it full price.

    Even though I got a bit late meaning minutes in placing the order from apple online and then I got the initial date of Nov 10-17 but then my order updated to November 3rd delivery and I got it on time perfect. I would prefer to buy from Apple.com and I always do.

    Bad and not sure I would do it again.
    My first preorder and was excited only to find out Apple website and app won’t be working until after it was sold out and have to wait few weeks for delivery

    Don’t think I will do this again....

    I prefer purchasing from Apple as it saves me sales tax.

    Curious. Why so-so? AND what should Apple do to improve it?

    I went on the Apple Store App and Website at the time of the launch of the iPhone X and it was out of order for 20 min.
    Then ordered the iPhone X and will receive it 6 Nov-earlier than expected.
    Everybody says going through the carrier is quicker however not sure if they receive it on 3 Nov or if it will be shipped then.
    So overall I’m pretty happy with the experience since I was expecting it for end of Nov.

    Those with IUP jumped the queue over those who booked direct on Apple website and paid in full.. If you bought on IUP, you would be happy. Others it is Russian roulette. Some got some were delayed.

    I think the carriers are faster.

    The apple website and app were down for me for at least 15 min so I had to order on the Verizon website. Got 11/3 delivery and loving the iPhone X.
