If you’re planning to pre-order one of the new iPhone 13 models in the US on Friday, September 17th, you might be interested to know that Apple It says customers can pre-register their details to make the payment process a little easier, The Verege reported.
And if you are someone who wants to complete a pre-order as quickly as possible to ensure an early shipping date during the global component shortage period, it is useful to know. Just be aware that this process is only available until midnight Eastern Time.
This isn’t the first time Apple has offered pre-registration, but previously that path appears to have been reserved for customers in the iPhone Upgrade Program, reports MacRumors, a 24-month payment plan that includes AppleCare Plus and offers a phone upgrade every year.
But now anyone can enter their data early to buy a phone with minimal hassle on launch day.
To pre-register, head to the Apple Store app or Apple website to get started. Anyone on the upgrade plan will be checked for upgrade eligibility and approved for their credit lines.
Other customers can choose their preferred iPhone model, register their carrier’s status, enter payment details, and choose accessories and/or an AppleCare Plus plan.
Just be aware that some users are reporting seeing the “iPhone pre-order has expired” error message, which MacRumors seems to indicate is a bug.
