No preorders for the iPhone 5S. You can order it beginning on the 20th.
3:01 am on 20th
There are no pre-orders, but you can order one starting at 12:00 PMT (3:00 AM EST)
I wonder if we order one at midnight on the 20th. Will we be able to do store pick up instead of it getting mailed to us?
Apple needs to clarify this. Is at 12:01 everyone orders online to either be shipped or picked up at the store there may not be any point of waiting in line unless they have guaranteed inventory in the store that can't be reserved online and is first come first serve.
They've said nothing about picking up at the store, but they do mention that shipping is free.
I think apple should've allowed us to order the 5s tonight but have them begin shipping on the 20th.
If there's no pick-up at store option, which I doubt there will be, I wonder how long shipping would take, especially since Sat and Sun are right after.
Nope, I confirmed with Apple support reps that there will be an in-store pickup option, but you take a risk of them running out of your model of launch day stock for that store.
Do they ship from China? I'd say by the end of the following week for sure.
I honestly hope not. I hope they're in warehouses here in the U.S.
I'd guess local warehouses are stocked full of them. Although I plan to stand in line on the 20th, I am going to be online at midnight on the 20th to see if the Apple online store notes an expected delivery date when you actually try to order one.
Last year the Apple Store at Fashion Island had iPhones in stock all day. No supply shortage. The only problem was the ridiculous long line that didn't end until almost noon.
I bet Apple saw how there was no supply shortage last year and decided pre-orders were no longer necessary and just an extra hassle.
That sucks. If you choose in-store pickup you would think that they would not sell it to anyone since you already purchased it. They can't just put them to the side?
