  • Apple Statement Confirms Online-only Initial Apple Watch Availability, Short Supply Issues


    On Thursday, one day before Apple will give users the keys to its online pre-ordering for the Apple Watch, Apple has issued a statement revealing some details about the Apple Watch ordering process.

    For one, the statement confirms that the Apple Watch is only going to be available to order online initially and that walk-ins in Apple's retail stores to place orders won't be possible at this point in time. Moreover, as expected, initial supply is predicted to be far less than the demand of the gadget due to manufacturing issues that have slowed down production of the device over-seas.

    Apple Watch will be available for pre-order starting Friday, April 10th at 12:01 A.M. PDT (that's late tonight). Official ordering of the gadget starts on April 24th.

      I know for sure that in-store pickup is limited to 1 per person. I don't think online is restricted though.
