    The 7 Plus 256 was £49 down-payment and 20 payments of £49.45. I don't know what the down-payment for the 8 Plus would be, but the monthly payments for the 8 Plus 256 are £51.45. This also includes AC+

    My thoughts too - if not for the X, I certainly wouldn't be getting the 8 (though it is a very nice iPhone in its own right)

    I go back and forth on the X hourly now, I have no idea what i'll do but I guess ill see what Pixel 2 brings on oct 4th.

    I think even if i order the X i wont be in the UK on the 5th anyway so in no rush now but would like it once i'm back.

    £1149 is just so ridiculous though but 64GB isn't enough

    You do need to pay the deposit again, as it forms part of the overall purchase price.

    Remember that, boiled down, iUP is is just 0% finance of the iPhone model you want plus AppleCare+ spread over 20 months, with a £69 initial spend, with the option to trade in the phone after 11 monthly payments are start a completely new agreement.

    Does anyone know if I buy an iPhone X in Hong Kong direct from Apple that it will work in UK?

    I’m very tempted to get the X but I still have another year left on my contract with 3 and they don’t really offer any refresh programme (like O2) which is kind of annoying.

    You have until you pick it up in store to decide on the payment. I swithered last year right up until I was purchasing the phone. Heck you could even order both phones and reject one on the day once you have seen them..........

    ...off topic but just noticed you're from Croydon too!!

    Back on topic - So which is gonna be the quickest way to pre-order tomorrow morning? The Apple Store app or via the website (I can see hundreds of people jamming the site but probably not the app)?!

    ...really??! So I can potentially try and reserve an 8 and an 8 Plus tomorrow morning and reject one, on the day of collection?!

    Oh Dino.. it’s the same the other 50 times you asked

    As per the first post, the app seems to come online quicker than the site. Keep both options open and hit that refresh button!

    If reserving and collecting in store given you have paid no money for it, you are not committed to pick it up and buy it.

    But it’s not really fair on people genuinely wanting the handset

    From reading the forums everyone suggests the App so that means that will be ram packed now lol

    Personally i only see the X, not in the least interested in the 8+. Clearly :apple: is veering off the old lane onto something innovative, hence i cant wait to be done with the odd 4 yr old design:rolleyes:. Glad i have the matte to mask the bezels in the interim

    Last year I couldn't decide on the white/silver or white/gold 7 Plus. I reserved a silver for 12:30 and a gold for 12:45. Once I got in the store and saw them both I cancelled my gold.

    There would have been some poor soul who couldn’t reserve that gold phone for that day

    But yes that’s an option if you can get a reservation for the devices you want

    Considering this was a week after launch, after I'd suffered the O2 pre-order debacle, I wasn't in the frame of mind to give a **** about others unfortunately :)

    I think so!

    App usually back online earlier but worth having everything open and ready! I need to look back on lasts years posts as I can't remember what I did but I went wrong somewhere...............think I count find the instore reservation link initially.

    Tomorrow my local Apple store will have pre-orders available. Will go to the store to buy mine.

    I'm going for the 8 Plus 256GB Space Gray.

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know how long an apple store will hold a pickup item for? I won't be able to collect my phone on launch day (maybe not even till the next Friday as I am on holiday).

    Thanks

    Graham

    I believe that day only as it then goes back in reserve for it to be reversed the following day.

    It will if you get the unlocked and in full price. Planning on doing the same and saving like £200 on the X.

    Even if I have paid for it, rather than just reserved it?

    These are the only 2 links I know of:

    https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/buy-iphone/iphone-8/4.7-inch-display-64gb-space-grey#00,12,20

    ....which seems to be if you want to buy the phone outright; and,

    https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/iphone/iphone-upgrade-program

    ....which is the IUP link, which I'm hoping will have a live 'Join' button tomorrow morning, in order to reserve the phoe and opt for iPhone Payments when one goes to collect.

    These are my backup links however, as at 8am tomorrow morning, I'll be commuting to work, so I'll really just be hammering the app to try my luck. If I don't manage to get one on the app and by the time I actually get to my desk in the office (around 8:30), it'll have to the links posted above....!!

    I'm hoping the reserved phones will be able to be picked up after Friday 22nd - will be better for me to pick up on Sunday 24th, if I don't make it to Bromley on that Friday...!!
