looks like the iPhone 14 pre-orders have hit a snag with reports of the Apple Store throwing errors when people try to grab the iPhone 14 range. On top of that, wait times for new Apple phones have been reduced from September to October.

#tmobile @tmobile @TMobileHelp Every year, the iPhone pre-order is a disaster. This year was not the exeption! This could be even the worst year yet 😂😭 still can’t order 45 minutes after booking.September 9, 2022
For some, there has been a nasty surprise where they end up with multiple orders, when apparently unsuccessful orders end up being processed. And those that received full orders have seen their delivery estimates drop since Apple’s stated September 16 launch date for the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. (The iPhone 14 Plus isn’t supposed to arrive until October 7 at the earliest.)
As it stands, it looks like almost all versions of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are now on hold until October, meaning any processed pre-orders will see the phones shipped to customers well after their on-sale date. actual iPhone 14. range.

That said, after pre-ordering an iPhone 14 from the UK Apple Store, but not buying the phone outright, I was given a delivery date of Friday 26th September. So in Britain it looks like orders for the standard iPhone 14 are doing well.
But opt for the iPhone 14 Pro in Space Black, and things aren’t so good, with an estimated delivery date of October 11-18.
Should all of this discourage you from pre-ordering? Well no, like in our iPhone 14 Pro Max hands-on reviewChief Content Officer Mark Spoonauer was very impressed with Apple’s new flagship phone.
You’ll just have to be prepared to wait, that’s not a bad thing, as we’d suggest holding fire until the full reviews of Tom’s Guide to the iPhone 14 range are available before making any major purchasing decisions.
