    Sorry, no clue .. also though I'm not sure if the pre-order is for the cellular versions as well as the wi-fi? .. I'm going to assume it is?!
    For the iPhone 5 pre-order started at 8am (UK time)
    :)

    Well as you know, it's the 26th. As for the precise time, won't it be the time Apple HQ opens for business? I'm guessing that's about 4pm for us in the UK.

    As Loopy65 said, it was 8am for the iPhone 5 so that's where I'm putting my money.

    Hmm, hope it is 8am, would really help to know a time.

    Suppose it wouldn't help their web traffic mind :)

    iPad first gen was midnight.

    iPad 3rd gen was immediately after the keynote.

    iPhone 5 was 8am.

    Take your pick. I reckon 8am.

    Er.... I recall the first ipad being midnight or there abouts. It was some weird early hour time for the 3rd gen ipad - I got my order through at quarter to one in the morning. iPhone 4s, I seem to recall that was around eight am yeah .... so - not *quite* eight am for in the last two years.

    I plan to get to work early tomorrow and keep refreshing the iPhone app.

    So if it goes well, Jim will turn up with the friday breakfast club sandwich (Bacon and Sausage on crusty bread) around 08:15 and hopefully I will have ordered the mini by then!

    I do remember the 4S being some time after 08:00.

    After some thought, it must be 8am UK, all preorders will start at midnight US PST around the world, irrespective of local time.

    Can you pre order for store collection? or does it need to be delivered?


    It will sell out tomorrow and folk will be lucky to get one before xmas after the presale.

    Guaranteed.

    Think I'm aiming to be ready for 8am UK time.

    I don't understand why Apple can't stagger preorders. Surely this would help with the server load too?

    No, preorder for delivery, or stand in a queue next Friday morning if you want to pick one up.
