Mines just come, copying everything over on Wifi now, 2 hours 30 mins to go...

Blue is quite nice in hand, still might go with a clear case over the leather but I've got used to an Apple one on my 12!

What’s the best clear case? Preferably something Amazon will bring me tomorrow….. I ordered a pro case for my pro max 🧐

I bought a Torras crystal clear case from Amazon, and it seems pretty decent. Although I'm not going to use it at present, gone with the Caseology Vault I bought for now.

Received my pro max earlier, all setup, went to purchase applecare+ and it said the device isn't eligible. There are a few reports online for the same issue.

Apple have confirmed over a lengthy call that there is an issue that everyone is experiencing, the advice is to wait 48 hours and try again. So yeah just a heads up in case anyone else is trying to purchase it

Can confirm I’ve had the same issue and have been told the same thing - wait 48 hours and try again.

Mine is due between 11-12 this morning. Just had a John Lewis add pop up for the iPhone. Perks at Work employee benefit gives an effective 3% cashback = £36 and they give a 2 year warranty (not 1 like Apple). Unlike Currys John Lewis terms do not seem to exclude mobiles. Wondering whether to bother with all the hassle, or just set up the new phone now!
I was sat here staring at the box. My Pro 512Gb is out of stock at John Lewis so I gave in and am now setting up my new device :). Have locked in a price with Music Magpie for mt XR 256Gb (£220, which is £5 less than last week).

Syncreon aren’t a courier they’re the logistics firm Apple uses - it’s basically where all the iPhones are stored pre release date. The next step would be for the package to pass from Syncreon to the courier (DPD or DHL). So I’d guess there’s some “lag“ in the courier’s tracking system.

Tried applying 2 ESR screen protectors and both have ended up with bubbles!

I managed it first time - which is unusual for me, I usually bin 2 or 3 before I get it right. This time I put the protector on before I even turned on the phone and as soon as I took the Apple screen protection off.

If I click the link in the despatch email from Apple it goes to Syncreon. How do I get the courier tracking because it’s still not here

Finally all set up ... took me a few hours as I was doing it from scratch. Screen protector in one without using the frame. Popped the phone into the Apple Leather Case and wow its a bit hefty compared to the Pixel.

Only 7Gb used out of the 256Gb so far. Oh actually I need to set it up with an Apple Watch that I had in the draw for the past few months.

The display with 120hz is just so nice ... about time too.

i bought the esr screen protectors as my usual mediadevil ones were on pre-order but the md ones have shipped today so i might just wait for them to arrive and return the ear ones rather then mess around trying to get it on without bubbles

Well 25 minutes on chat with Apple and I just have to wait and see if it comes tomorrow. Great.

On the general settings section it gives an offer of 3 months free Apple TV & arcade, which I’m gonna try out but it says it expires on 26/12/21
Is that the time I have to activate the offer?
Or no matter when I activate it the trial runs out on that date ?

Been and picked mine up from the Apple store in Meadowhall. Ended up buying the purple leather case to go with my blue pro max. Can’t wait to get it set up after the kids go to bed!

Loving the iPhone but the iPad Mini is :love:

The Dark Cherry Folio is simply 🤩.

DHL text me to say 15:19-16:19, told my parents they can go out until that time. Luckily they had no other plans as it came at 1:30 🤷🏼‍♂️.

Loving it so far, however I need to get used to the pro max size from my iPhone X. It’s a big difference.

Went with the 1TB for all my memes that make me chuckle 😂.
