Did you preorder your iPhone 8/Plus, Apple Watch Series 3, and/or Apple TV 4K?

Did you pre-order your iPhone 8/Plus, Apple Watch Series 3, and/or Apple TV 4K?

We did. Well, to be clear, we preordered our Apple Watch Nike+ Series 3 and Apple TV 4K units without a hitch. We’re waiting for iPhone X, so we’ve passed on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

If you preordered one or more of Apple’s new products, how did it go? Whatt did you preorder?

Did Apple’s – or your carrier’s – online preordering system work well? Did you get a Day One shipping day?


  1. 4K Apple TV 64g – I ordered at about 12:10am. It’s expected to be delivered on day 1. I used the App with no issues. I see this morning there’s a 2-3 week ship date now.

  2. I finally got my iPhone 8 this morning @8am. All systems were jacked up! I’ll still get it on the 21st. Per ATT’s order status. Actually had to chat with customer support because the automated system kept rejecting my cc

  3. I used the Apple Store app on my phone. I created a “favorites” of exactly what i wanted the day before. Got up at 2:01am central, store was down until 2:04. Loaded my order from my favorites, boom, done, slick, easy.

    Really hope it arrives on Friday the 22nd, I leave for an eight day trip on Saturday.

  4. Apple Store via iPhone 7— Ordered iPhone 8 256gb no glitches
    B and H Photo— AW3 with cell/gps
    B and H Photo– ATV4k 64gb
    BH order completed in seconds, no glitches EXCELLENT!!
    Will wait on 2nd version of iPhone10, I still like Touch ID and my iPhone 7 $99 Apple Battery case will fit iPhone 8 perfectly……!!!

  5. Yep, using the Apple Store app on my phone at about 12:20 PDT. Gray ceramic Watch and three new ATV 64gb units. Ordered without a hitch. Will order the X when that opens up.

  6. Ordered my wife’s 8+ 256 Grey (apple upgrade program). Hands down the easiest, smoothest order experience I’ve had for any iphone. Did the pre-auth a few days ago, woke up at 5am EST clicked two buttons and I was done. Getting it day 1. Hope hope hope, ordering my X will go as smooth.

  7. Ordered ATV 4K at 12:02am.

    I really think Apple misjudged how many people would order the iPhone X. I mean how many people are going to order older tech to save a couple hundred over the life of a phone. There will be a sick waiting list for the iPhone X. I’m waiting already.

  8. Still thinking I might stick with my 6s plus until next year. The thing holding me back from the iPhone X is the “don’t be a beta tester” thought about Apple’s first oled iPhone.

    I have noticed that every Apple store in my area has the 22nd for pick-up still available.
