Apple has announced the iPhone 14 line up today, which will be succeeded by pre-orders on Friday morning. And if you already have a specific configuration and color in mind, the Cupertino company is making the pre-order process with a breeze in several regions.


  • Apple opens pre-order configurator in the US and other markets.
  • Users can key in their pre-order details from the Apple Store app or website.
  • Pre-orders for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will start on September 9 at 8 a.m. ET.

Before you can really pre-order one, Apple recommends preparing the details early through the Apple Store app or website. The initiative makes it easier for users who are planning to secure the latest iPhone exactly on the first day of pre-orders.

How to configure and pre-order the iPhone 14 (Pro) ahead

Users are advised to visit the Store app where a section of "Save time at iPhone pre-order" is presented. It requires you to key in the chosen iPhone 14 (Pro) configurations ranging from storage to color and payment methods which are needed on the final pre-order stage. Trade-in quotations are also available for those who will trade their old smartphones.

Once you've prepared and done inputting the details, all you need to do is wait for the official pre-orders to commence. You can finish the checkout from the official Apple Store website or through the official Store app through a few taps. Apple is scheduled to open the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro pre-orders on September 9 at 8 a.m. ET or 5 a.m. PT in the stateside.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
