iPhone 5s Will Not Be Available for Pre-Order
During today's iPhone event, Apple announced that customers would be able to pre-order the colorful iPhone 5c beginning on September 13, but there was no pre-order date given for the iPhone 5s.
Instead, Apple supplied only a September 20 release date for its flagship phone, which means the iPhone 5s will not be able to be pre-ordered ahead of time. Customers who wish to obtain an iPhone 5s on release day will need to visit an Apple Store or brick and mortar carrier store to purchase the phone.
Apple will, presumably, begin accepting online orders for the iPhone 5s on September 20, but waiting in line will almost certainly be necessary to get a phone in-hand on the release date.
Apple's iPhone 5s comes with a 64-bit A7 processor, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and new camera enhancements. It will ship with iOS 7 and can be purchased in three colors, including "space gray", white, and gold. The 16GB version of the iPhone 5s will cost $199 with a 2-year contract and $649 unlocked and contract free.

Grab the tents and the blankets. It's going to be a cold and long night.
Nevermind, I'll be sitting in a mall.

Although I may not always reply to negative comments, this will not necessarily mean that I concede the point.

How annoying - I wonder if this is a matter of logistics or of wanting to make use of the halo effect. Get people in the brick and mortar locations so they walk away with more merch.

I think it's probably to due with yields needed. If they're launching in China from day one, and plan to be in 100 countries by the end of the year, it's probably just a case of they don't have enough stock to do pre-orders, and then have some available for networks and on the day walk-in sales.
There was already some stories about low volumes from production a few weeks ago, so this is probably because of that.
