Snippet: iPhone Preorders Begin Tonight ☇

Shared on September 13, 2012

Roberto Baldwin of Wired explains when you should be able to start ordering your new iPhone:

Apple has confirmed to Wired via e-mail that it will begin accepting online pre-orders of the iPhone 5 during the wee hours of the morning beginning at 12:01 a.m. PDT on Sept. 14. So if you’re hankering for a new iPhone 5, be prepared to fire up the coffee machine tonight.

Apple’s carrier partners Sprint, AT&T and Verizon have also confirmed that pre-orders will begin on early Friday morning. Sprint and AT&T will begin pre-orders at 12:01 a.m. PDT Sept. 14, while Verizon will throw open its online doors a full minute earlier at 12 a.m. PDT Sept. 14.

If you’re waiting around, OneThirtySeven’s Matt Alexander will keep you company. Anyone want to take bets on what part of the preorder process fails first (if at all)?
