iPhone 8 Pre-Order Time & Date

iPhone 8 Pre-Order Time & Date is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The iPhone 8 pre-order time is confirmed and buyers in the United States will need to stay up late, or wake up early, to put in an order.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus release date is confirmed for September 22nd but buyers in the United States and select countries around the world will be able to put in an order long before that.

Apple’s offering iPhone 8 pre-orders ahead of next week’s release date and those looking to avoid release day lines should set an alarm.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will go on sale at the standard 12:01AM Pacific time. Apple’s confirmed this time on its iPhone 8 pre-order page. This means buyers on the east coast will need to wake up around 3AM to put in an iPhone 8 pre-order. Those that want a specific iPhone 8 model are advised to wake up early in order to prepare.

In addition to the United States, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are set to hit Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, the UK, and the US Virgin Islands on September 22nd.

Those living in those countries will need to convert to the proper time zone. 12:01AM Pacific is not 12:01AM in Australia. It’s actually 5PM.

Apple won’t be the only one taking pre-orders at 12:01AM Pacific on September 15th. The company’s carrier partners, which include AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon in the United States, will also start taking early iPhone 8 orders on Friday.

We also expect a handful of third-party retailers to take iPhone 8 pre-orders. Best Buy recently launched an iPhone 8 splash page that teases the new devices and allows interested parties to signup for more information about the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Those looking to land an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus next week should consider putting in a pre-order through Apple or one of its partners.

Apple’s iPhones typically start selling out well ahead of the release date. Last year, shipping dates for some iPhone 7 Plus models started getting pushed back minutes after the start of pre-orders. The Plus models and the cheapest variants usually start selling out first.

Those who are unable to secure their first choice for release date delivery will likely have to contend with release date lines outside Apple stores and other retail locations. Some consumers are already lining up for the new iPhones and the lines could grow as we get closer to their September 15th street date.

While the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will go up for pre-order on Friday, Apple’s new flagship iPhone X will not.

The highly anticipated device is scheduled to go on sale starting October 27th with an official release planned for November 3rd. Like iPhone 8 pre-orders, we expect Apple to start taking iPhone X pre-orders at 12:01AM Pacific.

The iPhone X comes with an all-new design and a Super Retina Display but the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are more than capable.

Apple’s new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones feature a glass and aluminum design, improved Retina Displays, a new A11 processor, and upgraded cameras. And while the iPhone X starts at $999, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are much cheaper.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come in space gray, silver and a new gold finish with 64GB and 256GB storage options. The 64GB iPhone 8 starts at $699.

12 iPhone 8 Pre-Order Tips

Get Online Early

Get Online Early

If you're planning to order the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on Friday make sure you get online early. 

We highly recommend getting online at least half an hour before iPhone 8 pre-orders start so that you can get yourself situated. 

You might feel prepared but there's always a chance you've overlooked something or forgotten an important password. Or maybe you need to do some last minute research on the iPhone 8 and its competitors. 

You'll also want to figure out exactly how you're going to put in an order for your new phone. Make sure you're familiar with Apple's website or the website of your favorite retailer or carrier. Sometimes the UI is less than intuitive. Make sure you're logged into the site you're buying from ahead of time, just to be safe. Logging on at 11:59PM Pacific isn't a good idea.
