Here’s how to get ready to press the button on your iPhone 6S/Plus with new pre-pre-order function

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.

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

Apple Watch shipment

Several 9to5Mac readers with Apple Watch orders that promise May and June ship dates are seeing their order status change from ‘processing’ to ‘preparing for shipment’ despite the delayed delivery dates. Customers seeing these status changes have also reported seeing charges for the Apple Watch purchase. This is usually a sign that the pre-order is moving toward delivery, although for now the delivery dates appear to be unchanged making an early delivery uncertain. expand full story
