    Default In-Store Personal Pickup Begins for iPhone 5S, 5C Online Orders


    Apple is making the retail experience for new iPhone buyers a little easier with the expansion of in-store personal pickup for iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C online orders.

    As you might expect, the program is pretty straightforward. Those who purchase their iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C online from Apple now have the option to pick up the device at their nearest Apple retail store. It should be noted, however, that personal pickup is not available at all Apple stores.

    In light of the fact that new iPhone 5S orders placed online now come with an estimated shipping date well into October, personal pickup may translate to a quicker way to get your hands on the device if you're in the market for one. Of course, given the news that Apple provided to the world earlier today, it doesn't look like anything is about to make the iPhone 5S much easier to find.

    On Monday morning, Apple confirmed the sale of 9 million iPhones over this past launch weekend. With China Mobile preparing to introduce the new iPhones to hundreds of millions of subscribers in China, supply may still be crushed by demand for the near future.

    I never got the option for in-store pickup. Oh well, mine is getting delivered to me on Wednesday via UPS.

    Welcome. Just a little insight to what a lot of people already know but don't get to see.

    You mean one guys conveniently cut video only showing the dumbest people he could find?? Including himself as the doors opened he turned the camera at himself and just shook his head with a condescending look. If he thinks people waiting in line are dumb for waiting days, how dumb is he for filming it??

    Dumb? The people in the video where anything but dumb, crazy yes, but not dumb.

    And what's dumb about filming a queue of people who've been waiting in line for upto 15 days? Have you not saw the news over the past few days, if you had you would notice that all those dumb news channels where filming queues of people. It's newsworthy and the YouTube video posted above was very well made and interesting. It's not like the guy queued for days with them.
