I'm not either.. Staying up till 5am cause I don't get up till 7 normally and it's making it much more painful than 3am.

Luckily the time means 8 am est for me, I don’t have to get up earlier than usual or stay up late this year. :) I wake up early anyway, though.

Up but it’s 5am here in Houston, normal wake up time. Let’s hope the store springs open on time.

I’m ready. I’m EST though so waking up around this time is normal for me. This is the first time I’m actually pre ordering an iPhone at launch. I’ve had almost every iPhone but get it like a month into launch. I’m pretty excited. Debating on the midnight green or space grey still.

Given the overwhelming interest in the midnight green, it will be very interesting to see how quickly the delivery date gets pushed out from the 20th. Hoping that those of us ordering at 5am PST will get one with the 9/20 delivery date!

Yeah I might just go space grey. Not a huge deal to me.

Me, but I’m in EST so I would be up any other day. I had a dream that the order reminder alarm I set didn’t go off and all of a sudden it was 8:45 and I hadn’t ordered :p

I'm up and ready! Going 256gb Midnight Green Pro. Will go 512gb to ensure release date delivery if I have to.

This will be the first year, since I've been an iPhone user back in 2009, that I'm not pre-ordering and haven't felt the need to pre-order. *yawn*

There has been plenty of stock on store shelves for the past few years, when I've toured around the area on launch weekend.

That being said - I would pre-order if I were choosing a colored, standard iPhone 11, or a 64GB Pro (whether it was Max or not), or if I didn't have so many stores around me.

[I do live in a huge City with a lot of retail around, and I'm a mid-level Pro Max candidate.]

Good luck, as you go off to the races!

I was up at 3am eastern time. Forgot it was at 8am. Old habits are hard to break. Oh well 52 minutes to go!!!

Only hurdle I have this year compared to prior years is that I’ll be on the train when preorders start. Hopefully I’ll have enough coverage to put my preapprovals though.

I’m waiting ‘till next year to let the dust settle, so no rush for me.
What I am curious about is if the later ordering time will cause more server back-ups.
More people will be up/get up for a later ordering time than the die-hards (like me) who were willing to get up at 3:00 am for preordering.
Last year, between the time I started placing my order and getting the confirmation screen, my delivery slipped by 2.5 weeks past initial launch date. Luckily a short email to Mr. TC solved that so I did get the phone on launch day.
