    I just had an email off apple stating that I can order an iPhone 5S online from 12:01 am BST on September 20th.

    Guess that solves that conundrum.

    Excellent hopefully I'll be able to order one without too much of a problem. I think apple should of had pre orders for these as well.

    Do you guys think if we order they might go out the same day? I was hoping to get it for monday as its my day off. I can always get it sent to my work though if need be.

    It depends how good UPS is. There is a chance that if the phones are already in a UK warehouse, they could be delivered on the 21st via next day delivery, but I wouldn't put money on it, especially since its a saturday.

    I would imagine the first lot would be sent out on Friday.

    Definitely the gold model, and I had considered a 32GB but then I noticed we can add AppleCare+ now so I'll stick with 16GB and have AC+ instead.

    Applecare + looks pretty good actually I was considering that myself for the extra £79 it's worth it. I think I'm gonna go space grey as I don't think white or gold suits me lol. I have a 64gb iphone 5 at the moment so I'm tempted to go for 64gb again or even a 32gb not sure yet.

    Wow thats awesome, I would usually just be leaving for work at 8am, so their usual pre-order opening time in the UK screws me, as by the time I get to work they are usually on back order, and I can't stay at home longer because the site is usually up and down for 10-15 mins.

    Should be able to get my order in with minimal hassle, ace! :D

    Could they have them delivered by Saturday realistically?

    It is possible. Assuming they're already in the UK, and that they load the vans up by about 8am Friday, they could easily reach local sorting offices before 6am the next day. CHances are the first wave of handsets will all be sold within an hour or two anyway, and any after that will be sent out in wave 2.

    Who knows, maybe they'll start loading them up from midnight and have them delivered same day :D

    I'm tempted to order online now.
    Was originally planning to go into Lakeside early on Friday morning.

    Although I'll be at work on Saturday if they are delivered then :(
