How to pre-order the iPhone 14

Pre-orders won’t officially begin until the 8 AM on the 9th of September, but interested consumers can head over to Apple’s official store page for the devices when they are ready. Apple itself even detailed a $1,000 rebate for customers who trade in any qualifying smartphone. Below are the main places where consumers can pre-order all of the iPhone 14 models:

  • Apple (iPhone 14/iPhone 14 Plus)
  • Apple (iPhone 14 Pro/iPhone 14 Pro Max)
  • Best Buy (iPhone 14/iPhone 14 Plus)
  • Best Buy (iPhone 14 Pro/iPhone 14 Pro Max)
  • Amazon – not live yet

Carriers, too, will have options for upgrading existing lines to the iPhone 14, such as Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T.

When can the iPhone 14 be pre-ordered?

Apple has announced amid its “Far Out” event when consumers can expect the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus pre-order dates, which are listed as follows:

  • iPhone 14 pre-orders start September 9th
  • iPhone 14 Plus pre-orders start on September 9th
  • iPhone 14 Pro pre-orders start on September 9th
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max pre-orders start on September 9th

Yes, unfortunately, you’ll need to wait until September 9th to pre-order any of the new iPhone 14 models. That is unless you have just over $10,000 on hand, because Custom iPhone company Caviar has its iPhone 14 pre-orders already open.

The incredibly pricey limited-run designs feature iPhone 14 models decorated in exclusive materials: 18k gold frames, diamonds, meteorite material from the Moon and Mars, and hand-wound mechanical watch movements.

We may be better off waiting for the official pre-order via Apple come September 9th. As soon as we have more information and any additional intel, we’ll tell you.
