Apple’s iPhone 7 Pre-Order Time in Canada: Sept. 9 at 12:01AM PDT


We’ve had many questions asking “what time do unlocked iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus pre-orders launch in Canada?” The answer? Friday, September 9th at 12:01AM PDT/3:01AM EDT. This also applies in the USA and other first wave launch countries.

Yes, that means you’re going to stay up late or set your alarm to pre-order an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. The best way to pre-order, if you don’t know already, is to use the Apple Store iOS app, as that usually goes online first before

Make sure you fill in your address and payment details now, before the Apple Store goes down this evening, as once the store goes back online, initial iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models will surely sell out, as always (especially Jet Black, this year). You don’t want to be scrambling entering in your details during check out.

Unlocked iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus pricing is as follows:

iPhone 7

32GB – $899
128GB – $1029
256GB – $1159

iPhone 7 Plus

32GB – $1049
128GB – $1179
256GB – $1309

Rogers/Fido (3AM PDT/6AM PDT), TELUS (most likely tonight at midnight PDT or so, again) and Bell (12:01AM PDT/3:01AM EDT) will also be launching iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus pre-orders, and SaskTel as well. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus contract pricing is as follows (SaskTel; but Big 3 will be the same):

iPhone 7:
– 32 GB – $398.99
– 128 GB – $528.99
– 256 GB – $658.99

iPhone 7 Plus:
– 32 GB – $548.99

– 256 GB – $798.99

Last year, Apple had Reserve and Pickup for iPhone 6s, and the option could return this year in the Apple Store iOS app (for unlocked and carrier contracts), so let’s wait and see.

    Any word if you preorder online if you can pick up the iPhone 7 at the Apple Store instead of the phone being delivered?

  • I was wondering the same thing…. if I remember, we were able to do it for the last 2 years.

  • Last year the option was available in the Apple Store iOS app, it could return this year. we’ll find out soon enough.

  • JBird

    Omg that’s tonight! Lol I was almost going to stay up past midnight tomorrow night!

  • Lol I thought that yesterday and quickly realised it was tonight

  • Nick

    if i buy the phone through apple and choose in store pickup can i do a carrier upgrade when i get there? Or is it purly for unlocked phones?

  • Last year, people were able to ‘change their minds’ in store. So you should be okay.

  • Nizar

    If the pick up in store option is available tonight and I choose to go with carrier contracts I don’t pay anything tonight and pay it in store or through my carrier on launch day right?

  • Yes

  • Salinger

    It’s been a few years since I ordered an iPhone on pre-order launch day. I know in the US the first shipments are usually delivered on actual launch day (the 16th), is that ever the case in Canada? I remember previously they usually didn’t arrive until a day or two later.

  • I always ordered on preorder… and always was able to get on launch day… usually it’s fine if u go quick and live in big city… but also depend on the model.

    What about reserve and pick up at the Apple Stores for a carrier subsidized phone like they did for the 6S? It kills me that they aren’t upfront about this stuff. Keeping new hardware a “secret” I understand but keeping the purchasing options quiet just doesn’t make sense to me at all…

    does any one if I iPhone 7 bought in US would work in canada? when I go to preorder US site, it is asking me to pick a carrier. I am planning to have my parents sign up for apple upgrade program and buy a iPhone 7 which they will bring with them when they visit me in canada. I am just not sure how they can buy an unlocked on in US.

  • Yes get the at&t model

  • I like your style, you don’t mess around
