iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Start at 12AM PST & 3AM EST on Friday
The iPhone 5 will go up for pre-order on September 14th and those looking to order the iPhone 5 early will be able to do so through Apple, AT&T, Sprint and most likely, Verizon.
AT&T and Sprint announced that they will be taking pre-orders on Friday with Sprint claiming that it will start taking iPhone 5 pre-orders at 12:01am PST. That means those on the East Coast of the United States will be able to pre-order the iPhone 5 through Sprint at 3am.
AT&T tells us that it doesn’t have pre-order timing to share just yet and Verizon Wireless has not made its plans known. We assume that both carriers will follow Sprint’s lead and offer it starting at midnight on Friday.
Those that aren’t looking to pre-order the iPhone 5 through one of the three carrier’s that will be offering it on launch day will also be able to pre-order the device through Apple.
Apple did not disclose a pre-order time either but we assume that pre-orders will begin through the Apple Store at midnight on Friday as well.
All three carriers will more than likely be carrying all three models once pre-orders begin on Friday which means the cheapest iPhone 5 model will be the 16GB variant while the most expensive will be the $399.99 64GB iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5 32GB will cost $299.99. All of those will come on-contract. Apple will also be offering the iPhone 5 off-contract though those prices are much more expensive, starting at $649.99.
Apple today announced that the iPhone 5 will be released on September 21st and will run on the 4G LTE networks for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Wireless.
It will also feature a new 4-inch display, new design featuring glass and aluminum, improved cameras, a faster processor, and Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 6.
