Not content with its usual opening up of pre-orders before the new iPhones go on sale, Apple has this year added pre-pre-order functionality to both website and Apple Store app in the US.

Under a link labelled ‘Get ready for pre-order,’ Apple allows you to enter your account details (phone number, zip code and last four digits of social security number) to find out exactly what your upgrade will cost you. Once pre-orders go live, you should then be able to simply select your model, color, storage and any accessories before completing check-out.

For those who want to upgrade every year, Apple yesterday announced a new iPhone Upgrade Program, providing a new, unlocked iPhone with AppleCare+ from $32/month.

Pre-orders go live at 00:01 PDT/03:01 EDT on Saturday.
