Because pre-ordering started at 8 a.m. Eastern, not 3 a.m., I thought I’d thought I’d try to get in on the first shipment.
Right off, couldn’t make sense of the offer from Verizon, a company that has not earned my trust. Settled on the $450 Apple was offering me for my one-year-old iPhone 11 Pro. Then came a series of error messages that set me back to the beginning of the pre-order process. When I finally managed to open my virtual shopping bag I found it contained three iPhones, three Apple Cares and two MagSafe chargers. By the time that was sorted out I was looking at Election Day delivery at the earliest.
I’ve seen worse. Much worse. But remind me next time not to try.
Speaking of MagSafe, here’s Joy of Tech.
