Posted in Apple News, iPhone on 01/11/2017 by Chris Hauk


If you live outside the U.S. and weren’t able to get an iPhone X pre-order in and don’t relish camping outside your Apple Store on November 3, there may be one option left for you.

Apple to Accept iPhone X Walk-In Reservations on Nov. 4 in Certain Countries


In addition to pre-orders and limited in-store availability for walk-in customers starting Friday, Apple will also begin accepting reservations for the iPhone X starting this weekend in several countries outside the United States.

“Reserve and Pickup” will re-open Saturday, November 4 at 6:00 a.m. local time in AustraliaBelgium, and the United Kingdom. Residents of CanadaHong KongMexicoSwitzerland, and the United Arab Emirates can make an appointment at 8:00 a.m. that same day.

The service allows customers to hold an iPhone X at a physical Apple Store retail location. Buyers fill out a short online form and select a 30-minute window to pick up the device. They then receive a unique registration code. The customer can then visit the store at the selected time to pay for and pick up the device. A valid government-issued ID is required. There is a limit of two reservations per customer.

Availability of iPhone X models will vary by location. Apple told MacRumors it doesn’t plans to offer Reserve and Pickup in the U.S., but said the usual pay ahead and pickup option will be available.
