Apple’s iPhone 14 Plus launched in markets around the world today, three weeks after the other models in the iPhone 14 family became available, and four weeks since iPhone 14 pre-orders began.
Online orders of all iPhone 14 Plus configurations on Apple’s website have shipping delays until next week, but for customers who forgot to pre-order the iPhone 14 Plus or simply decided to Wait, the good news is that same-day or next-day pickup will be an option at many Apple Stores around the world.
As of this writing, Apple’s online stores in the US and Canada have yet to be updated to indicate pickup availability, but shortages are not expected and unlikely. that there is a lot of variation from state to state. Meanwhile, across the pond, all colors and configurations of the iPhone 14 Plus are available for Apple Store pickup today in countries like France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK.
To order a product with Apple Store Pickup, add the product to your cart on Apple.com or in the Apple Store app, proceed to checkout, select the “I’ll pick it up” option, enter your postal or zip code, choose an available Apple Store location, select a pickup date, and select a 15-minute check-in window. Payment is made online, and a valid government-issued photo ID and order number may be required upon pickup.
iPhone 14 Plus models may also be available to walk-in customers at Apple Store stores with sufficient inventory, but availability cannot be guaranteed. Walk-in customers may be placed in a separate queue with lower priority when they arrive at the store.
The iPhone 14 Plus is for customers who want a larger iPhone without all the features of Apple’s high-end models, but pre-order demand for the new model apparently hasn’t reached the heights Apple expected. The iPhone 14 Plus, like the iPhone 14, features the same chip as the iPhone 13 Pro, camera enhancements, and other minor enhancements. Reviewers called the iPhone 14 the “iPhone 13S”, noting the small improvements and changes over its predecessor.
