Pre-orders for Apple’s iPhone X start at the end of the week, and everyone is excited. However, given that Apple is expected to have difficulties keeping up with demand for the iPhone X, there is little doubt that some customers will be put on the back-order list. But for those who want to try to be one of the first to get Apple’s latest and greatest, we have collected all the necessary information about the iPhone X pre-orders start time and date and how to prepare for your new phone.
iPhone X pre-orders start time and launch date
The iPhone X pre-orders start time is 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on October 27. You will be able to place your order via Apple’s own website or through major U.S. carriers if you are using a financing plan for your iPhone X. The smartphone will be on store shelves on November 3, and pre-orders will be shipped out on that day.
If you currently own an iPhone
If you want to buy the iPhone X, Apple offers a monthly installment plan. If you are already using a monthly installment plan for your current iPhone, Apple also offers the iPhone Upgrade Program. If you are one of those who want an iPhone X as soon as possible, you can place your order through the Apple Store app.
Using the Apple Store app will allow you to fill out the digital documentation for the pre-order now, and then when the iPhone X pre-orders start time arrives, you only have to check out.
Pre-order your iPhone X online
There will be many customers who get up early to pre-order their iPhone X. That being said, it is best to wake up as early as possible so that you can be ready when pre-orders open at 12.01 a.m. Pacific/ 3.01 a.m. Eastern.
Another piece of advice that we can give you is to open multiple tabs on your browser when pre-orders open. Given that there will be a lot of people on the Apple website at the same time, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Apple’s servers get overcrowded and eventually crash. So prepare your browser, take a nap in the afternoon before if you can, and be ready at the iPhone X pre-orders start time.
Order through your carrier
While Apple will have most of the iPhone X units, trying to place a pre-order via your carrier is worth a shot. If you have an account that is due for an upgrade, all major U.S. carriers will let you pre-order your iPhone X. If you don’t want to order from Apple’s site, getting a financing plan for your new smartphone is an excellent opportunity.
Nevertheless, you don’t have to pre-order the iPhone X; instead, you could wait for November 3 and get your own from a local Apple store. Still, this step is quite risky, given that the iPhone X will likely be in limited amounts. With that in mind, it’s better to be safe than sorry and be ready for the iPhone X pre-orders start time.
