    Three hours after it began taking pre-orders via the Apple Store app, Apple has now begun taking pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus through its official U.S. online store. Currently, all iPhone 6 models are showing a delivery date of September 19, while all iPhone 6 Plus models are estimated to ship in 7-10 business days.

    Apple's online store comes back online as many users experienced technical problems while attempting to pre-order both models on the Apple Store app. Several U.S. carriers including AT&T and Verizon have also been experiencing problems with pre-orders, with both of their respective sites crashing for many users. Those interested in buying an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus directly from Apple's website should do so soon, as supplies will likely run out over the next few hours.

    The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will be available in stores beginning next Friday, September 19. The smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is offered in 16, 64, and 128 GB capacities for $199, 299, and $399, respectively, with a two-year contract. Contract-free pricing for the device also begins at $649. Meanwhile, the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus is available in 16, 64, and 128 GB storage capacities for $299, $399 and $499, respectively, with a two-year contract. Contract free pricing for the larger device begins at $749.

    Update 3:20 AM: Some iPhone 6 Plus models are now showing an estimated ship date of 3-4 weeks. All iPhone 6 models remain available.

    Finally!

    I already ordered 3 hours and 1 minute ago through att.com before 12 AM PDT! But Shipping for the iPhone 6 Plus was always 14-21 business day shipping, now finally moved to 21-28 day shipping.

    I should have waited 3 HOURS and order through the Apple Store because it's still 7-10 business days for shipping! I did reserve one using the Apple Store App on my iPhone a couple hours ago and I can confirm the order within 24 hours of getting an email. I just would have to cancel my AT&T order. I don't think I can do that, but I can refuse the delivery when it finally comes after I get the iPhone 6 Plus from Apple. Though that would be messy to clean up my AT&T account.

    It took a while, but i was able to order an iPhone 6 Plus 128gb in Space Gray thru the Apple Store app on my iPhone 5. Delivery Oct 1-6.

    All the 128GB 6 plus models showed delivery of 7 to 10 days (Oct 1 thru 6). All the 128GB 6 models were showing delivery date of 9/19.

    Store pickup was Unavailable for 9/19 from ANY of the stores in the San Francisco Bay Area for the 6 Plus 128gb models. :/

    Hope the iWatch keeps better time :)

    Maybe Apple forget to set their time zone settings?

    Overslept my alarm and woke up at 4:45 CST, scrambled to my computer at just the right time apparently. Was able to order 2 iPhone 6's from the first batch!

    Can't wait to see how the "poor" 8MP camera fares against the rest of the market who all appear to be in a megapixel race with each other.

    I ordered through the app at 1:10pdt through AT&T Next, but was finally able to get through to the site around 2:30pdt and order a T-Mobile version. Both supposedly deliver on 9/19. iPhone 6 64GB. Hopefully that means supplies of the regular iPhone 6 are plentiful next week!

    Maybe Apple should have designed their site with iWeb.

    I was given that option but elected to have it shipped. No need to wait in line.

    Considering that the 5s camera is still considered the best of what's out there (from Android phones), the 6 will be better still.

    The S5 and LG G3 and others have great cameras but the reviews generally state that the 5s produces the most consistently good photos.
