I’m still a bit peeved with the delay launch of these answers an iPhone upgrade program. Because since another month is passing they conveniently get to Bill me for another month or two for my 11 pro max until the new one ships and everything I’ve paid up until this point they get to keep :/. Has something been confirmed to the contrary?

Why anyone would open a new line of credit for an iPhone still baffles me, especially when you can order from the carrier with the exact same upgrade program and it just falls under your monthly bill through the carrier.

Isn't using the Apple Card really the same thing as going through the upgrade program? It's a monthly payment with no interest that would pay off the phone after 2 years.
No because you’re buying the phone without the ability to upgrade

Just got to wait for the one for the Pro Max now.

This feature makes preordering stupid simple and I love it. I just set an alarm for 4:50am wake up and then at 5:00 I click one or so buttons and I’m done and back to bed (ok more like posting on here) by 5:01
