It’s been a quick two days since Apple unveiled the latest iPhones in its lineup: the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. That’s right! We’re skipping the standard “S” release and heading straight to prime time with the 8, and there are plenty of new features to look forward to— including wireless charging, a glass back, and a new TrueTone LCD display.

Now that you’ve had time to drink in all the details, it’s time to preorder. Preorders start on Friday, September 15 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific (that’s 3:01 a.m. Eastern—sorry for the bad news). That’s right after midnight, so don’t go to bed without setting your alarm. The phones officially come out next Friday, September 22.

Apple’s online store may seem like the most obvious choice, but you can also get it from the Apple Store app for iOS, which tends to work very smoothly based on our past pre-ordering experiences. It often is even more reliable than the Apple online store, which is why Apple recommends going this route. It should at least be your Plan B if Apple.com crashes.

Besides Apple, the four major cell carriers are also eager to help their customers upgrade or switch to a brand-new iPhone—especially if it means renewing a contract, extending an installment plan, or signing up new customers. 

Speaking of installment plans, the process will be a little different for those of you participating in Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Plan, while we’ll cover below. 

Read on for more iPhone 8 pre-order info. Looking for info on the iPhone X? That one doesn’t ship until November 3, unfortunately, so preorders won’t begin until October 27.
