Reserve an iPhone 4S At Your Local Apple Store For Next Day Pickup

By  |  9 Comments

Apple has just started taking in store reservations for the iPhone 4S at official Apple Store locations.

This is great news for those of you who didn’t preorder an iPhone 4S in time to get one on launch day, or for those who just learned about the iPhone 4S this weekend.

Apple Stores are now taking reservations for iPhone 4S in store sales. According to the how to buy page, a reservation is required to purchase an iPhone 4S in store, but we are under the assumption that Apple will still sell any unreserved stock to walk ins, or let you use one of the in store computers to make a reservation.

The first batch of in store iPhone 4S reservations starts tonight at 9 PM, for all Apple store locations, including the 245 stores located in the U.S.

While this is a sign that there is a minimal supply of in store iPhone 4S devices for sale, it is good news for those who want to hold an iPhone 4S for pickup at a local Apple Store. I know this is good news for my wife, who doesn’t want to wait until november, but also isn’t ready for another empty handed trip to the Apple Store.

To Reserve an iPhone 4S at your local Apple Store, you’ll need an Apple ID and an internet connection. Remember to wait until after 9 PM local time.

  1. Visit the iPhone 4S Buy Now page.
  2. Click on the Reserve button to choose your preferred Apple Store.
  3. Pick the iP{hone 4S or iPhone $S’ you want to purchase.
  4. Sigg in with your Apple ID.
  5. Confirm your selection.

Show up at Apple the next day with your account information, including the Social Security number of the primary account holder.

You can use this service to reserve the iPhone 4S on AT&T, Sprint or Verizon in all sizes and in black or white. Every Apple store will not have all iPhone 4S models in stock, so you might want to check several stores before settling. You can also use this guide to find local stores with the iPhone 4S in stock.

If you don’t pick up your iPhone 4S the next day, Apple will offer it up to another buyer. In the past Apple has required reservation holders to pick up their device before a certain time. We have seen times as early as 3 PM or as late as 6 or 7 PM, so pay attention to your confirmation email.

    Even with a reservation, note that you still have to wait in line to actually get the phone. At the 5th Ave store in Manhattan the wait has averaged about 3 hours.
