Developers can take advantage of the longer pre-order period whether their app is free or paid. Customers won’t be charged for paid purchases until they’re ready for download, and they can always cancel if they change their minds. When the apps roll out, customers will get a notification that their purchase will automatically be installed on their devices within 24 hours.
