    For the iPhone 8, for people who are currently enrolled in the Apple iPhone Upgrade plan, you could use the Apple Store app to get per-approved for an upgrade, select the iPhone 8 model, carrier, etc, and basically be all ready to just check out on the day of pre-order. Anyone have an idea/guess when Apple will let us do that for the iPhone X?

    You can select what you want and add it to “favorites” but that is about it. You will have to wait.......

    I would assume that pre-approvals will start 10/20 or so.

    Why do you need it to be pre-approved? Thought you just reserve it and thats it? Is it a long process to get sorted?

    You don't HAVE to get IUP pre approved but its a HUGE benefit for you to do it. Once u get it all set up and pre applied, you literally click "submit ordeR" as soon as the store opens and you are done, ordered, i got my wife's i8 in on like minute 1 because i didn't have to fill out any BS just one single click.

    Dmal99 - Do you recall what steps you did when the store opened? Do you just go to "Bag" or "Account"

    thanks

    When the app opens you don’t even need to go to bag or account. It just popped up and said complete order on the bottom, you click a submit button, you do Touch ID and that’s it

    I can’t figure out how to do it either. Never gives the option since it isn’t selectable as a configuration option.

    What I did for the 8 Plus was make it a favorite in the Apple store on my desktop, then it appeared as a favorite in the app.

    Same for me. It was on the page that automatically showed up on when the app first opened after preorders went live

    Does anyone remember how soon the IUP pre-qualification opened up before the pre-order date of the iPhone 8? I am hoping we can start to get pre-approved in the Apple Store app soon.

    Also, for anyone who used the IUP to get the 8, did it let you have the option of it being shipped to you, and then you ship back your old phone? Or did you have to select pick up in store?

    My wife and I switched to the IUP plan last year when we each got an iPhone 7. We both would like an X. Does anyone know if I'll be able to complete both transactions at once, from one (my) iPhone or will I need to do a single transaction from each phone?

    Yes! I have the email from the iPhone 8 saved- it was the Tuesday before preorders. Here is a screenshot of the email: https://ibb.co/dkW3vm

    Ahh so we are probably looking at 10/24 then, to get pre-approved.
