    i thought when I got my 6 128 GB that my next iPhone would be the 8, looking forward to more storage and possibly a screen size I between the 6 and 6+, also looking forward to lighter and bigger phones with killer tech, I can’t upgrade anyway, but not really feeling the urge anyway- the iPad pro and pencil I think would be awesome, but probably too speedy to get right away- been wanting a mini too for a while- definetly getting the new Apple TV

      Holy wow. That was so easy. Ordered on the Apple Store App. Paid with Apple Pay. Took less than two minutes. This is a big change from previous years, for me.

    iPhones reserved! BOOM!

  16. Was able to log in to ATT and preorder at 10 minutes till midnight. Was done with both upgrade orders with 6 minutes to go before midnight. Was expecting a much bigger headache but that was quick and painless.
