  • Apple Store Goes Down for Maintenance Ahead of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Preorders


    It’s that time of the year again – Apple’s online store has been taken down as the company prepares for what is expected to be a flood of preorders for its recently announced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The famous “We’ll be back” notice is up, indicating maintenance which is usually associated with a major product launch.

    Many of you probably already know, the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were revealed at a media event this past Tuesday. Both models have Retina HD displays, more powerful components like an A8 SoC and M8 motion coprocessor coupled with upgraded cameras. The key factor that differentiates the iPhone 6 Plus from the iPhone 6 aside from the size is a higher-density 401ppi display, optical image stabilization for the rear iSight camera and special landscape viewing modes in iOS 7.

    On-contract pricing for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 starts at $199 for the 16GB, moving onto $299 for the 64GB and $399 for the 128GB. The iPhone 6 Plus will also be made available in the 16 GB, 64 GB and128 GB capacities for $299, $399 and $499 respectively. Those of you considering purchasing off contract should be ready to pony up $749 for the iPhone 6 and $849 for the iPhone 6 Plus with a $100 jump for each storage capacity jump.

    Much like the usual, preorder numbers are expected to be high and Apple will be allowing in-store pickup for online orders, hopefully cutting down the launch day crowds and streamlining the process. One thing that continues to remain unknown is how long the in-store pickup option will last as supplies will also be needed for walk-in customers.

    Are any of you going to be staying up to make the preorder purchase?

      From $749 off contract? Not $649?

      Does anyone know, when using AT&T's Next program to obtain the iPhone 6, will the phone be unlocked?

      I have looked everywhere and I can't find anything to back up this statement from AT&T. I do know they will unlock it for you on the next program after the device is paid in full but as far as being unlocked from the start only Verizon sells a fully unlocked phone at the subsidized price. T-mobile has no contract phones which are actually unlocked as well but hides behind the wording. Apple store has no contract phones as well but for full price.

      Looks like they won't be opening up. Waited up for nothing.

      AT&T's website is down also. Verizon is working fine just checked it.
