    In the UK I've always managed to buy new iPads from the Apple website and had them delivered on launch day.
    Is it the same with iPhone or can you only get one on launch day by queing up.
    Would rather buy online than head into Manchester Arndale

    I can't quite give you an exact answer... part of it will depend on the features of the phone (if there are several features on the 5S only, I'd expect bigger turnout).

    I'm in the US, and after camping out last year, I've learned exactly how to prepare. Pre-orders started online around 4am (if I remember correctly)- shipment dates moved quickly. If you're not up and waiting on their site, you'd have better luck camping out.
