Went into the Apple Store today to pick up a new iPhone with the upgrade program, but left empty handed as apples system would recognise my details (confirmed 100% that everything was correct). Looks like it is an issue on Apple’s side as the loan application was accepted by Barclays.
I saw that it looks as though others have had a similar issue and I’m thinking it could be due to using my Monzo account.
Has anyone had any luck setting up the Upgrade Program with Apple?
No not really, they phoned Barclays and confirmed everything had gone through OK. But their app kept popping up an error saying please put in correct details. They are still looking into it at the moment, so might be OK. Just wondered if anyone else had experienced anything similar!
On an Apple note, last week I was in a kids soft play centre in Manchester and paid with my Monzo Card. The woman on the till said ‘Ah, Monzo. They’re great.’
I asked where she had heard of Monzo ( seeing a hot coral card is a bit rarer oop north than the Capital I think), and she said she used to work in the Apple shop and one guy had brought in his Monzo card one day and within a week all the Apple Manchester Arndale staff had one, so she’d definitely heard of them before.
So I’m sure many off the staff you speak to in the Apple store are carrying a Hot coral around somewhere!
Yup, took my sister into Birmingham to get help with her iPhone while wearing my white tee shirt and one of the guys in there (who wasn’t involved in the iPhone problem) came over and asked me how I was getting on with it
