    Apple - iPhone 5s

    Scroll all the way to the bottom where it says pre-order 9/13...
    I see where it says "Pre-order 5c" but theres absolutely nothing about being able to pre-order the 5S...

    apple might be doing that because long lines makes for good press.

    speaking for me though, as much as I want the phone ASAP I ain't camping out for a damn phone. I have a life.

    but that means when I come to the store at say 6 in the morning, the day of the sale, there'll already be a 10 mile long line and I'll be lucky to get one after waiting 12 hours in line.

    apple should rethink this. customer experience should trump all the press oooing over super long lines to get the iphone.

    I can't believe you guys are even debating this. It's spelled out on Apple's website in plain English.

    As annoying as it is you have to wait until the 20th to order a 5S. I'm at least hoping you can order at midnight and then pick up from a local store so you're guaranteed to get it on release day. Otherwise if you're planning to order online you're waiting at least a day for it to ship to you.

    I really hope apple doesn't go through with making us get the phone in store. I loved the ability of being able to preorder because i have to work, it's rare to have a friday off. so i avoid missing the launch date but know that my phone is on its way because i preordered it. apple! put a preorder for the 5S!

    You all overthink this. Just show up at a carrier, walk out 10mins later.

    No thanks. I like having my new iPhones shipped to my front door as I relax and drink my morning coffee.

    There's nothing in there about being able to preorder a 5S. Absolutely nothing. You're going to have to order it on the 20th.

    I live about 2 hrs from a apple store. I'd have to take a vacation day..... I hope preorders are an option.

    This only shows the availability to "order" the 5S on Sep. 20th, not that it can be preordered along with the 5C starting on the 13th.

    Luckily I'm off that day so I can line up. I'll try the AT&T store. Our Apple store is always crowded. But a preorder would've been nice.

    Let's say that the 5S isn't ready for pre-order on the 13th...anyone ever consider the fact that two very popular iPhone's set for pre-order on the same night might be a huge cluster f*ck and that they might want to separate the pre-order dates for both phones by a day or two?

    That is strange but also maybe it's just too much for them to handle all at once

    I'm planning to order it online on the 20th and possibly pick it up that day. Does anyone know if you order online on the 20th, if they hold it the entire day? I'd like to avoid the huge line at the store in the moring and pick it up in the evening... Also, will they "give away" your ordered 5S away to the customers in line if you're not there by a certain time?

    I would love to know this! how long do we have after we preorder it online to pick it up? can we pay for it over the internet and then pick it up whenever we please?

    I don’t know, but would strongly suspect that you can place an order on 9/20 for it to be delivered via UPS/FedEx delivery at some future time (a week later?) ...

    I don't how reliable the Apple representatives are, but I asked if it would be available to order at midnight on the 20th and he said "yes, that is my understanding". Either way, I'm planning on staying up for a little bit past midnight to see what happens. I'm just gonna order from the Apple website and have it delivered.

    He understood wrong then. If it was available to preorder it would be listed as such. However it is not.

    One could always try the AppleStore app on their phone and see if it's possible to reserve a 5S just after midnight for pick-up on the 20th...
