iPhone 12 pre-orders: Problems with payment via Apple Pay

Pre-orders for the iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 mini and HomePod mini started at 2 p.m. German time. As usual, the rush was huge and Apple cannot keep up with the deliveries. If you order an iPhone 12 Pro Max now, you will probably not receive it until the beginning of December, for example. It is all the more annoying that some have now received an email from the Apple Online Store that is difficult to understand – the payment method has been rejected. Usually such problems are homemade: the credit card is no longer valid or does not have adequate credit lines. But this time, Apple Pay is the reason and the buyer is not to blame.
