Apple is offering pre-approval for customers planning on buying their new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max through the iPhone Upgrade Program. Pre-approval will allow buyers to hit the ground running when pre-orders begin at 5 a.m. PDT on Friday, September 13.
Existing and new iPhone Upgrade Program members can use the Apple Store app on their current iPhone to initiate the pre-approval process until 9:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, September 12. Once pre-approved, iPhone Upgrade Program members can purchase their iPhones immediately when pre-orders become available.
On their iPhone, customers will be able to select their preferred iPhone model, select their carrier, and get approved for their loan, leaving only the final step of completing the purchase on Friday.
Buyers will have the option of paying for their iPhone by using the Apple Card for financing, to get 3% back on payments. Buyer that use the Apple Card won’t get special financing options.
