Got both of mine, the 830 am came before 8 am which I thought was odd because I ordered the 8 am first and it’s the same phone but oh well needless to say I’m getting them both tomorrow.

I just got mine too. I wish I could go before work but that would make me late. I have to wait all the way until 430 to pick my phone up. 😢

Received mine also. Is your QR image broken? Mine just shows the text and not the QR itself

Finally got mine just now. The watch email let me add to wallet, the phone email didn’t. Weird.

yes, mine is broken, but I’m not overly worried as I have the order number right there and my driver’s license.

ETA: just check the order in the Apple store app and it has changed to ready for pickup. Can’t do it until the specified time tomorrow but I think it’s safe to say my device is sitting in a room with other iPhones less than 10 miles from me, waiting to be picked up.

I got mine. This is my first time doing in store pick up as well as using the iUP program. I hope this goes smoother than all my other Apple Store purchases.

My theory (based on doing these for one of the two largest US Carriers) is that the e-mail gets sent out when the Apple store employees scan the item into their inventory. That immediately triggers the email to the customer. So order and pickup time probably doesn’t matter too much. Again, just a theory.

I'm in the same boat....just got my two emails for tomorrow, for my phone and my watch. Pickup time 1130-1200 noon. Can't wait!!!
Also my QR code is doing the same thing....just numbers, no code.

Got mine earlier as well! It’s exciting to know my phone is sitting in that store right now as we speak

Not one single chance! Lol
To follow up, I called the Apple store (and after a 30 minute wait on hold), was told that the store was too busy processing orders to allow for pick up today (pick up today would have been too good to be true!).
