I plug in my new phone to to iTunes to sync pics and text tones etc and yet another update pops up. I go to install and after it downloads and starts to install I get an error. Restart laptop still does it. I download only and try to manually install then it says I need windows 7 Service Pack 1 64 bit. I have Windows 7 home edition 64 bit which meets the requirements acccording to Apple’s site. Smh. Pain in the a$$. Last night when I backed my iPhone 6 up and wiped it and restored to unlock it everything went smooth (even though I’m not sure it’s unlocked).
I got a message saying mine was unlocked.

Honestly I don’t care about the unlock right now I’ll figure it out but it may already be unlocked. I fell asleep and didn’t see a message when I woke up just it had restored successfully. The issue I have is trying to sync pics with my new iPhone. When I plug it in it requires an update to proceed but my iPhone 6 and iPad do not. Ridiculous.

I’ve seen people say before they can find their shipping info on ups website by searching for their cell phone number as a reference number before Apple sends the tracking number. Can someone direct me to where this search field is?

I ordered my daughter an iPhone 8 256gb in silver on Saturday, it originally said Oct 2-5, got a notice this morning that it has shipped and will be here Thursday.

When is the last time you heard of someone ordering a new iPhone 8 days after preordering began and receiving the iPhone in less than a week?

Lots. Demand for the 8 and 8 Plus is down due to the people holding out for the X.

Yeah, it should have just said new iPhone. I agree, come October 27 we will be back to the same cluster as always. Maybe there will have been enough of the 8/8+ sold to alleviate some of frenzy for the X.
