Right on schedule, pre-orders for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are now live on the Apple Store and the Apple Store application

If history is any indication, we expect delivery times to start sliding very quickly, so obviously, pre-order your iPhone as quick as possible.

To speed up the process, we recommend using the Apple Store application and use Apple Pay to complete your pre-order. As a backup plan, get your browser readily pointing at Apple’s website.

If you do get a pre-order in, please come back here and tell us about your experience. How did the pre-order go? What device did you pre-order? What kind of delivery date did you get?

      • Blacklight: Retribution


      • askep3

        HOPING it’s just because they have a good supply

      • Braddock81

        Fingers crossed

      • Blip dude

        2am PST, 26 hours later and delivery/pickup still available for 9/22

      • Braddock81

        Damn you, Apple! Of course nobody wants that damn 8!

  • Nick

    Got my Apple TV 4K. Yay!

  • basilis

    I can tell that people buy black version all the way…

  • I ordered the 64GB Silver iPhone 8. In France, the price of this device ends up being about $200 more than it is in the US (including taxes). That’s insane! No wonder why most people here have Samsung devices.

    Not sure if it’s any indication of anything, but we’re about 20 minutes past the pre-order launch and all models are still available for delivery on 9/22.

      same here In india. the prices are 300$ more than in usa.

  • Mon Cooper

    Apple watch series 3 and Apple tv

  • Jamessmooth

    Got myself a 42mm space black stainless steel AW with sept 22 delivery. Had to go through the online Apple Store since I had a gift card which I was nervous about. Ended up working out!

  • besrate hogsa

    I will wait for the iPhone X
    I am upgrading my iPhone 6 plus

  • SpideyRules

    Picked up the 64GB 8+ in Space Grey. Delivery slated for 9/22…

    Stayed up until midnight to order, went through the Apple Store app, and everything was very smooth.

    • Siri Tim Cook Holness

      Y not wait for X? 8+ looks so ugly with the bezels

      • SpideyRules

        Bezels don’t matter too much when you have a case on it. Also, not willing to give up TouchID yet until FaceID (and other attempts at new technology) is tested and improved upon.

      • Siri Tim Cook Holness

        There’s no problem with faceid and it’s more secure and faster than touchid

      • DodgerZack

        saying that as someone that has literally never used it before. I agree with Spidey. I’ll let you beta test the X and i’ll get the X1 or whatever they call next years.

      • Siri Tim Cook Holness

        I’ll get next years too #iPhoneUpgradeprogram

      • dpacemaker

        Face ID is not faster. Right now Touch ID works as I take my phone out of my pocket and thus my phone is open when it gets to my eyes. Face ID makes me take my phone out, look at it and then swipe up. That is not faster.

      • Siri Tim Cook Holness

        It is faster plus it’s not natural scanning ur fingerprint in that location I’d understand if u were referring to pixel bc when u take it out ur finger naturally sits on scanner on back but ur not

      • Siri Tim Cook Holness

        If anything it’s same but I still say faceid is faster

      • Siri Tim Cook Holness

        And more secure

      • Siri Tim Cook Holness

        They do matter there’s no way around it why carry around a physically bigger device with smaller screen

      • SpideyRules

        I’ll tell ya what…

        How about I buy what I want to buy and you stop trying to sell me something different like you’re making a commission on it? Would that work for you?

        Or maybe I just don’t have to justify my choice to you. You asked me why I don’t want to wait, and I told you. Now get off my case.

      • Blip dude

        It’s a f****** phone, nothing else. Some of us really don’t care and have other priorities. I could personally spend the extra $300-$400 on something better.

        I don’t need FaceID, I don’t need OLED, don’t need conductive charging, don’t need a faster processor, etc. just need a phone that actually works, which Apple swears that’s what their products simply do, yet my current 6S Plus would state otherwise.

  • CuBoy531

    When Apple meets demand, people complain. When Apple fails to meet demand, people complain. Get a pacifier a suck on it people.

    • askep3

      People aren’t complaining we’re just sad because this probably means more people are going to get the X

  • Siri Tim Cook Holness

    No1 wants this X is better

    • SpideyRules

      You’re just an idiot that thinks his opinion is the only one that matters.

  • Bugs Bunnay

    why did they not call it the 7s? perhaps I’ve missed it…

  • Blip dude

    After 26 hours, and dealing with the constant Bluetooth connectivity issues all day on my 6S Plus, I was finally given the motivation to order the 8 Plus 64GB in Space Grey.

    I came to the realization that 64GB is barely enough nowadays but f*** 256GB though, don’t need that much storage Space.

    Oh and everyone can still pre-order for delivery or Pickup for the 22nd.

    • Siri Tim Cook Holness

      Y buy the 8 plus? 8 sucks shoulda waited for X

      • Blip dude

        Because I don’t want nor need a $1000 overpriced, overhyped phone.

        If your priorities are to deal with overloaded server issues that is going to result in you pulling an all nighter at a parking lot looking like you just hit rock bottom, all for a $1000 phone, then hey more power to you.

        Meanwhile, I’ll be waking up at my regular time next week, go thru the morning routine, drive to my local Apple store, and be in and out of the Apple store in about 5 min, possibly without any activation issues either.

    • Siri Tim Cook Holness

      There’s a reason people still get it on day 1 bc no1 wants shitty 8 it’s all about X
