Hey all,

Just wanted to see what your order status is if you chose in-store pickup.

I did, and my order status page shows that it will be available for pickup on 9/19.

However, my order still shows as "Processing," and my account has not yet been charged.

Anyone else in the same boat? Just getting a bit concerned.

I guess you are in the states, I've paid nothing but picked a slot on Friday.

Spoke to apple, and they have confirmed that if I have made a reservation, then my name is on that iPhone.

Yeah, it seems outside the US you get a time-slot to pick it up. In the US, you just pick it up sometime that day.

I just checked mine to see and it's the same status as yours.
Shows pick up in store available on 9/19 and nothing has been charged to my card yet.
Hmm, that makes me feel a little better..hopefully some others chime in to share their status as well!

Relax mine is the same, just as it is every year. Soon they'll charge you and you'll be able to enjoy using it on the 19th.

I'm assuming it doesn't matter what time we pick it up if we are in the states? I am in Texas. I chose to do in store pick up because I work all day and can't be there first thing in the morning.

Pick up in New Hampshire

I got the same notice that the order is processing and that the pick up date is September 19th. The last time I checked, my credit card had not been charged. I plan on going to the store to pick it up on September 19th unless i get another email saying something else.

Same, not charged for the 4.7 iPhone 6 with in-store pickup on the 19th.

The second order I placed for 5.5 iPhone for delivery has processed and charged.

Exactly the same and believe me I check every 10 mins haha

Btw how are you dealing with the crowd on Friday? Concerned that there's a possibility people will be mad and possibly mugg u for the phone?

I'm picking up at a mall. It's a pretty nice area of Houston so not too worried.
I'll have my bf with me too but I've picked up Apple products from this mall plenty of times and never felt unsafe.

It's listed as processing but I have an actual order # so I'm not worried. I do t think it'll change until the store actually gets the phones.

Just an update:

My Chase account just posted the transaction from Apple for the full price of the device.

Order status is still "Processing Items," but it's nice to see some movement at least!

Mine is still processing. I had my order in within minutes of the Apple store app going up so I'm not concerned. I do wonder how all of the preorders placed for in store pick up will be handled. Will those phones be taken out of the stores' available stock for launch day purchases? Will those phones be added to the stores' launch day stock they receive? Will they all arrive separately from the launch day stock via a FedEx shipment?

I'm assuming the stores will receive their shipment of launch day stock along with a separate stock of iPhones for the people who preordered to be picked up at the store.

Yes, once you pre-order an iPhone online and pay for it, that phone is yours and it's held specifically for you in a separate location from other ones that are released to people who walk into the store without having pre-ordered.

What I was meaning to say is I wonder if the iPhones that are preordered for in store pick up are deducted from the stock levels or if the stores are shipped in the pre ordered phones separately. For example: The store is slated to receive 100 iPhones for launch day stock but also has 20 iPhones preordered to be picked up at that location. Are the 20 preordered units taken out of what would have normally been the store's launch day stock, (meaning they now only have 80 phones to sell), or is the store shipped 20 additional phones to cover the preorders.

I don't really care. I know I'm getting my phone on the 19th either way. I was just pondering how Apple was handling all of that.
