Apple today updated its Apple Store app with support for Siri Shortcuts, which the company says can be used to make pre-ordering the upcoming iPhone XR with the iPhone Upgrade Program faster than ever.

When getting pre-approved for an iPhone XR, iPhone Upgrade Program members will see a new "Add to Siri" button that can be used to record a custom phrase like "pre-order my iPhone."

Once pre-orders are available on October 19, customers can say the custom-made phrase and Siri will pull up their pre-approvals in the Apple Store app, allowing for quick order completion.

Other than the Siri Shortcut outlined by Apple, there do not appear to be other Apple Store Shortcut options available at this time. Full release notes for the update are below:

What's New
iPhone Upgrade Program members can now use Siri Shortcuts for an even faster way to complete their iPhone XR pre-order on 10.19. Look for the 'Add to Siri' button while getting pre-approved, and record your own voice command, like "pre-order my iPhone." Say your phrase when pre-order begins, and let Siri pull up your pre-approval in the Apple Store app so you can quickly complete your order.

The Apple Store app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Can’t wait for the “it’s not fair Siri messed up my order I shouldn’t have to wait for my phone” threads.
Cant wait for “Siri ordered 36 phones and apple won’t take it back because you were using it wrong” threads.

Um, no, I'm not going to use this for my next preorder. I'd go hoarse repeatedly asking Siri to preorder my device while waiting until the preorder queue finally lets me into the Apple Store around 7 minutes after midnight.

I've already got a much quicker system in place. It involves a whole lot of tapping, force quitting, and reloading. The device is already favorited before the store goes down. That's the only way to get anything on launch.

I’m still shocked that even if you pay for the most expensive iPhone you do not get cool color choices like the cheaper versions. Why is it some weird faux-gold color? Why not have all the colors available? I want the iPhone XS Max in those cool colors.
Because these different color options, like the 5C, looks like something from a candy store.

Apple doesn't to associate that notion with their premium flagship device.
