So that you know, the iPhone XS lives on the same design principals as the iPhone X. And we know it well how Apple had a hard time completing all iPhone X pre-orders back in October 2017 because of the limited manufacturing capacity of the iPhone X.

Pre-order iPhone XS using the Apple Store app
The Apple Store iOS app is the fastest way to pre-order iPhone XS. It’s quick. You can wake up early in the morning, fire up the app, place your order and go back to sleep.
Be sure to force close the app before the iPhone XS pre-order listing goes live because if you don’t, the app may not show refresh its contents and you won’t see the iPhone XS listing.
You can also use your carrier’s upgrade or payment plan through the Apple Store app.
If Apple Store app isn’t an option, we suggest you head over to the apple.com website to pre-order the iPhone XS. It’s the next best reliable thing. You get to use your carrier upgrade or payment plans from the Apple website as well.
You can pre-order iPhone XS from retailers such as Best Buy and a handful of others. These stores will take your pre-order both online and offline. However, third-party retailers may not have many iPhone XS devices in stock, so it’s better to focus on pre-ordering from Apple itself than other retailers.
All of the four major carriers in the US — AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint — have the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in stock. These carriers will be taking pre-orders the same day, and time Apple does so if you fail to get a pre-order complete from the Apple Store app or website, consider getting it through your carrier website.
