Apple Offering iPhone 12 Pre-Approval for UK Monthly Payment Plan Customers

"Get Ready" involves these three steps:
- Choose your iPhone model and features, add a trade-in if you want, and select monthly payments.
- Get approved now for a 24-month, no-interest loan from Barclays.
- At 1:00 p.m. U.K. time on Friday, 16 October, use the Apple Store app on your iPhone to complete your order.
Pre-approvals are available until 05:00 a.m. U.K. time on Friday October 16.
Customers planning to pay in full can get ready by setting up Apple Pay or adding a payment card to their account, and adding their preferred iPhone to Favorites so they can check out quickly at pre-order.
