    I just got an email from Apple stating my in-store pickup may be delayed for my iPhone 8+. I had the 12:30-1pm slot picked out for Friday and was pretty pumped since I was off from work this day anyway. Anyone get one of these emails yet? What have they done in years prior with these emails?

    You should have a very good idea where you stand on Thursday. Still early in the week.

    I don't recall someone posting this last year, although it probably occurred.

    Are you in a smaller metro area? I just checked and I didn't get any emails. Chicagoland area, iPhone 8+ 64GB Space Grey in-store pickup 4:00-4:30PM.

    My pickup time is 730pm to 8pm in Allentown, PA store, and so far I did not get any emails. But apple.com shows that pickup is no longer available. We will see and lets hope for the best.

    Yep, still saying in progress. I am doing iPhone Upgrade Program and received email from Citizens with new loan number so I am hoping that I am good to go.

    Long Island, NY. Definitely not small. I ordered the same model as you.

    I have a pending charge on my card too and it says in my orders that pick up is still scheduled for Friday 12:30pm.

    Give them a call. May have been a mass email that went out incorrectly.

    For those of you who are picking up in store tomorrow, has your credit card charge gone through? Or is it still a temporary charge?

    What does it say in order status?

    Mine says in progress and in the email I just got that told me the Belkin wireless pad is ready, it says shipping soon for the 8+.

    Both AW3 and 8+ show shipped with tracking. Going to the store for pick-up is nuts!

    Did you order in store pickup? I had no choice if I wanted it launch day. I figured it would be organized given the time slots

    I've been doing this for years. The reason why I chose Store pick up this year is because the store is 10mins away from my job. If I did the delivery, I would've missed it and would've have to go to the UPS store for pickup. Same line all over. The 6 was a mad house since we had to fall in line before they open. Hopefully it goes smooth for this pickup.

    i am doing apple upgrade program and there is pending charge on my credit cart, based on the amount (65.88), pending amt is for tax. Also my order page has changed. Still says that order is pending and that pick up is available 09/22 but scheduled time slot is no longer there. Edit: Check in time is back on. LOL

    Spoke to Apple today via chat and they told me my order will be ready tomorrow and the possible delay turned out to be a non-issue. Anyone else who gets this email should contact Apple.
