    Really?

    From the Apple email:

    "Pre-authorization does not guarantee iPhone availability at an Apple Retail Store. iPhone is sold on a first-come, first-served basis."

    I take it that Pre-Authorization is not equal to reservation. I am guessing all reserved phone's will be available till end of business day.

    Or that it could be just a disclaimer to cover scenarios like FedEx truck don't show up in time.

    People have well-established through calls to various Apple Stores that a reservation is a guarantee that you will have a phone reserved for you through the close-of-business on the 24th.

    If you have a reservation, you should use it. Otherwise, you should cancel it so a walk-up will have a better chance of getting a phone on release day.
