What happens when your pre-ordered item is released

When your pre-ordered item becomes available, your payment method is billed and you receive an email. If you turned on automatic downloads, the item automatically downloads to the device that you used to buy it. (You can't download movies to Apple TV or smart TVs. You can only stream them.)

If you don't see a pre-ordered item on your device after it's released, find the item in your purchases and download it. If the item is an app or game, you can also find it in the App Store and tap or click Get.

If the purchase can't be completed

If a billing issue stops your purchase from completing when your pre-order releases, you'll get an email. You need to update your billing information before you can download the item.

If a pre-ordered album includes pre-release songs

If you pre-order an album and some songs are released before the album, you might be charged for each song as it becomes available. You'll be charged for the remaining price of the album when it releases.
