How to guarantee you get an iPhone 13 pre order
You can get an iPhone 13 pre-order in through a number of retailers, but the best place to bag the phone is directly through the Apple Store. But to do so successfully these are the steps we recommend you take:
1. Create and verify your Apple Store account now
Seriously, don't wait until the day of iPhone 13 pre-orders going live to make sure you have an Apple account and it is up to date and verified with your delivery address and payment details. Do it right now. Remember, Apple takes down its store in advance of pre-orders going live, so you won't be able to do it then, and that means that when iPhone 13 pre-orders do go live, you'll end up right at the back of the queue, as you won't be able to checkout your order if your account isn't verified. Every minute counts on iPhone 13 pre-order day.
2. Configure your order in advance
Now that the Apple Event keynote has ended head on over to the Apple Store and find the iPhone 13 you want, and in the right color and storage variant. Now, you won't be able to pre-order it yet, but what you can do is wishlist it as a favorite product. This will mean that come the iPhone 13 pre-orders opening, you'll already have your order ready to go. To do this configure the phone you want and then click the heart icon next to the greyed out "continue" button. This will add the handset to your favorites.
3. Ring up your new iPhone 13 on launch day immediately
Come iPhone 13 pre-order day, which is Friday 17 September (and most likely at 8am ET) head on over to the Apple Store immediately and process the order.
