Five tips to for pre-order the iPhone 7
The iPhone 7 release date is confirmed for September 16th but you don’t have to wait that long to put in an order. iPhone 7 pre-orders are live and these tips should help you successfully place an order for the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus model you want.

Pre-order of the device will start on the 9th September, and it is very important that you be prepared in all the possible way to get your order of the device processed.

We are sharing five tips for pre-ordering the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 plus, make sure you follow all of them to increase your chances.

Check the availability of upgrade with your Mobile operators

Before iPhone 7 pre-orders go live you'll have to check in with your carrier to see if you have an upgrade available. If you fail to do this and you move to pre-order an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you're going to waste your time.

To check your upgrade status, you can login into your account at AT&T, Sprint, Verizon or whatever carrier you're currently using. You can do this online or, if you'd rather hear it from a real person, you can call in to check.

For checking the upgrade availability via Apple's website though you'll need to have some very specific information on hand to do so.

Be Early

You can expect there to be the usual scrum once iPhone 7 pre-orders go live so you'll want to show up early and prepared.

We recommend showing up at least 30 minutes ahead of the iPhone 7 pre-order time. iPhone 7 pre-orders go live at 12:01AM on September 9th. So, you'll have to be on your phone/tablet or computer at 11:30PM or so. Just to be safe.

You do not want to sit down at the computer or fire up your phone/tablet a minute or two before iPhone 7 pre-orders kick off.

This 30 minute buffer will give you time to make sure everything is in place to put in a successful order. For many of you, you'll need to do more than just login and put in a credit card number.

Use Apple Store App
When you go to pre-order your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you might be tempted to put in an order through Apple's website or a carrier website. These are tempting options but they probably won't be your best option.

In the past, the Apple Store application has been a far more reliable option for us and many others. Websites sometimes crack under the load; Apple's application is typically stable. It has saved us a few times in the past.

The app is free and it allows you to buy an iPhone 7 in the same way you would on Apple's website. If things start going awry when iPhone 7 pre-orders go live, give the app a shot.

Have a Backup Payment Plan Ready

This is the most important point. If you want the iPhone 7 model of your choice on release day you'll want to have a backup payment option in place in case the card you use gets flagged by your bank or credit card company. This has happened to us and many others in the past and it could happen to you.

If you don't normally make purchases at Apple or if you usually don't make big purchases on the card you're using to pre-order, the company responsible for your card might flag the purchase. In turn, this could prevent you from putting in an iPhone 7 pre-order when they go live.

If you have another credit card, make sure you have it and the information associated with it handy. It could prevent more than a few headaches.

Don’t look for accessories while pre-ordering

Don't let iPhone 7 accessories get in the way of a successful pre-order.

The iPhone pre-order process is all about accuracy and speed, especially if you're gunning for a very specific model. If you don't act fast and get an order in, you might have to wait for several weeks for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus stock to return.

Researching iPhone 7 accessories on pre-order day will only slow you down. They aren't going anywhere and you'll be able to buy them after you put in an order for a phone.

Apple and its carrier partners will likely try to entice you during the process but most of you will be better off looking into the best accessories after the pre-order process is complete.
