    I feel like in past years, they have started the Friday (or Thursday at 12:00 pacific) after the press event, with the first batch of shipments arriving a week later. Does that sound correct, or am I off by a week?

    Or not. I'm surprised they changed the formula this year.

    September 12th. Putting it on September 11th would be bad taste.

    People should STOP using things like PST or PDT. Just use PT. After all, I would guess the vast majority of people have no freakin clue if we are on daylight time, daylight savings time, or standard time. In the end, Pacific Time is still Pacific Time.

    I wonder why they added an extra week to the pre-order process.

    I dropped my 5S last month. Using an Iphone3. I will live until the new one gets here.

    As to when for pre-orders...they made it clear it was Saturday in the announcement. Their webpage shows 12:01am on Saturday (late late friday night for regular folks)[/QUOTE]
