Yes, what time do pre-orders go live. I'm in the UK.I want to order mine so I get it launch day. Also, do we have in-store pickup?

I think there is not a specific time yet.

I tried the Apple store online chat and the rep said he has not a specific time for it either.

I'm an American in Hong Kong on business this week, will the Apple site let me place a preorder tonight or will I be blocked?

Does anyone know what the delivery dates are? I know we can order on the 17th. But when will we get it? When does it ship?

source please?
All Apple releases/preorders in the past went live at 12:01AM PST/ 3:01AM EST. I don't foresee them changing this schedule. Hope the site doesn't get overloaded like the iPhone 6 preorder. It took me forever to order it.

Gonna preorder the iPad mini 3. Looking forward to it!!!

I wonder if it'll be necessary to be online at 3:00 EDT to get the iPad I want. I'd really prefer not to get up in the middle of the night if it's not necessary.

I've decided I like the gold (although it'll be in a case so it doesn't much matter) but haven't decided whether to buy the 64 or 128GB.

I will bet gold will sell out first!

I don't see an in store pick up option on the app. Just says in stores soon. I wonder if this means shortage....

Can't wait to get my hands on a 5k mac. This is one of the best apple events ever. 5k mac, mac mini update, and ipad mini with touch id. All in my shopping cart now.
