Ahead of the start of ordering the iPhone 13 on Friday, Apple accepts previous iPhone Upgrade approvals for the iPhone 13 and allows those not in the program to prepare for payment.
Apple has once again activated the pre-approval process for new and existing members of the iPhone Upgrade Program, and also allows other users to make similar preparations before Friday. The company typically launches the system hours after the latest iPhone is announced, simplifying the cumbersome process of preparing a hectic launch according to pre-orders.
The process begins in the Apple Store app for iOS or on Apple.com. By tapping or clicking the “Prepare” button next to the iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro, users are taken to an ordering page where they can select and configure the desired device model. Customers can choose whether to connect the iPhone to an existing line or buy a new handset that will be equipped with a new line.
Apple is looking for a replacement before switching to payment options, which include full payment or a monthly fee.
Those who pay in full wonder if they would like AppleCare + coverage before confirming their order. Touching “Save to Subscribe” displays options to verify your mobile carrier, browse iPhone equipment, and select a payment method.
Members of Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program will go through the monthly payment method, which includes choices for monthly Apple Card installments, iPhone Upgrade Program, Apple iPhone Payments, and special offers. Touching the “Prepare to Subscribe” button presents similar selections to those listed above, except for the iPhone Upgrade Program, which displays the option to pre-approve credit.
In both cases – full payment and monthly payment – the details of the carrier are confirmed, and customers are instructed to return on September 17 to check out.
The process saves precious minutes that could mean the difference between a launch unit per day or a delayed delivery.
Customers in the U.S. can use the pre-booking system until 9pm in the Pacific on September 16th.
Apple’s iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max will be ready for pre-order on Friday, Sept. 17, at 5 a.m. Pacific. Orders are due to arrive on September 24.
