    Default Apple Offering In-Store Pickups for iPhone Preorders


    The big preorder day is almost here and in an iPhone banner ad on Apple’s website, in-store pickups are mentioned for the upcoming iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The official time for the preorder begins at 12:01 a.m PDT on Friday. For those who will already be sleeping by that hour, Apple Retail Stores will be selling the new devices on September 19th starting at 8am. If you plan on picking up a device on launch day, we’d suggest getting there bright and early or you may not have a chance to even get your hands on a device.

    According to Apple’s website, consumers can have the device shipped to them for free after preordering it or can pick the device up in store. AppleInsider reported that Apple representatives told customers they can choose a specific pickup location when they preorder the device online. When heading over to the Apple Store, they will have to bring the web receipt or email to show an Apple Store associate next Friday.

    For those who are looking to pickup the device in store, the availability is unknown. It is a given that these devices will be in high demand, in which case, supplies may be limited. Since Apple Retail Stores will need to have enough supply on hand for customers who walk in, the availability will most likely be on a first-come first-served basis. We hope everyone gets their devices in the time frame they want it, happy preordering!

    I've never done a pre order so for those who have in the past what are the chances of it coming in the mail on the 19th?

    I've always gotten my (me, wife, family) pre-orders on release day, but we've done it through AT&T. Never tried through Apple.

    If you preorder early (12a), then it'll be there ON the 19th. A lot of times, it'll get to the delivery holding station early, sit there till the 19th and then it'll be sent out for delivery!

    I think doing a preordered pick-up at an Apple Store on launch day is a terrible choice. It'll take an hour or more just waiting to get it...

    Nope. Two lines at Apple Store on launch day. One for pickups (much shorter) and one for purchases. Maybe 5-10 minute wait when I did it..
