Jeff Butts and Dave Hamilton join Jeff Gamet to talk about iPhone 8 and Apple Watch Series 3 pre-orders and whether or not they ordered any new kit, plus they look at the extra steps they needed to install macOS High Sierra GM.
If you’re hoping to pre-order an iPhone 8 or Apple Watch Series 3 for delivery next Friday you may be out of luck because ship dates are already slipping.
Break out your credit card because pre-orders for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and Apple Watch Series 3 have started.
Apple’s online store changed to the “We’ll be back” message Thursday evening in preparation for Friday morning’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and Apple Watch Series 3 pre-orders.
It took hours instead of minutes, but delivery dates for most Apple Watch Series 2 models have slipped out to about three weeks. The Series 2 Sport aluminum and stainless steel models are listed as shipping by the end of September, while the ceramic Edition model is 5-6 weeks out.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus deliveries were showing several week delays only minutes after preorders launched, but don’t count on seeing how many sold come Monday because Apple isn’t sharing the numbers. The company said the numbers don’t reflect actual demand and don’t hold any value for investors.
