    Watch! Unsure of cellular or non though.

  • Jay

    Waiting for Iphone X

  • Kirk

    Keeping my iPhone 7. Great new phones but I gotta give my 7 more love.

  • Kev

    Same, not sure if I should go LTE Watch since I’m with Public Mobile

  • 1 minute

  • Sidney

    Did you get it?

  • My order defaulted to my home address. I checked my account options after in the Apple Store iOS app and the default address is set to my business address. Where during the order did the address change? Does Apple Pay impose the home address?

  • Dominic

    Yeah, you have to change it whenever you move as when you had setup Apple Pay your address is prompted for online Apple Pay purchases. It kind of sucks but it saves you the hassle of entering your address. Believe me, mine did that too and I had to get in contact with the owners of my previous address XD

  • Dominic

    Here here, plus I’m happy with the camera as is, can’t imagine how much better it can get tbh

  • I went to the Apple website and checked my order, but it seems my only option is to cancel — I don’t see an option to change the shipping address. Shipping to my home address isn’t the end of the world, I guess. Who fulfills the shipment? UPS? Canada Post?

  • Call Apple to get them to change the shipping address. They can do it.

  • Kirk

    It’s a shame Rogers is not in this launch otherwise I actually might have been tempted to preorder the SERIES 3. There’s just no way I’m changing my cellular plan. It’s a dinosaur plan with Rogers and too good to cancel

  • Kirk

    I know right? We can still shoot 4K and great high quality images on our 7’s! ????

  • They can and did. But it wasn’t as simple as telling them to use the default shipping address tied to my Apple ID. They had to enter it in manually specifically for that order. I find it rather inflexible that Apple Pay can’t use my Apple ID’s default shipping address.
