iphone 6 order 2

It looks like Apple will be giving folks who pre-order the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus the option to pick up their devices in-store, rather than having to wait for them to be shipped to their houses. The retail iPhone page on Apple’s website invites users to pre-order the new handset, and choose to “have it shipped to you for free, or pick it up in store.”

9to5Mac says it has confirmed the news with several Apple Stores and representatives. Apparently the option to pickup the new iPhone in store will be available during the pre-order checkout process, and Apple will be setting up a second line for Personal Pickup at each of their stores on September 19th, when the handset officially goes on sale.

Apple doesn’t typically give customers the in-store pickup option during major product pre-orders, or even on launch day, but it has in the past. For example, I was able to request Personal Pickup when pre-ordering the iPad Air, and my experience was fairly similar to the one described above. I was in and out of the store within 20 minutes.

We’ll obviously know more about the process when it goes live tonight at 12:01 a.m. If you’ve never pre-ordered an Apple device before, or could use a refresher course on the matter, checkout our Survival Guide. We will let you know as soon as iPhone 6 pre-orders become available tonight, and keep you updated on carrier/model availability.


  • I’m so ready!!!

    • AndroidDogHeatandSteelersFan

      your body is ready

    • Its funny I haven’t seen any complaints of it being ugly anymore lol, I guess they decided it was good looking only after Apple announced it themselves and still want to buy it regardless of the lines or camera lens.

      • alfonso hall

        you mean ugly regarding screen size??? me personally have experienced the note 3 and i absolutely love the screen size. the operating system not so much. but as far as cameras go. the 5s blows the note out of the water period. megapixels don’t make the camera

      • What ugly regarding the screen size. I don’t even see how that is possible. I was just talking about the back cover. Lots of folks said they didn’t like it but I don’t her a mum of it now. Im no Android or Samsung fan so no need to get defensive lol.

      • Tommy

        it’s still ugly lol. people still know it. but they can’t be harping about it all year round now can they? life goes on…

      • says you and everyone else who thinks it is.

    • Jason Baroni

      Which color, model are you getting?

    Ok, so I’m looking for advice from someone who has owned (or currently owns) both iPhone and Samsung (preferably the Galaxy Note 3).

    The only smartphones I’ve ever owned have been iPhone (my first was an iPhone 2, I think). So it’s all I know. I’m poised to preorder the iPhone 6 Plus tonight, and I’m excited. But last night something took hold of me and made me consider, maybe, the Note 3 instead. I want a larger screen, but I’m wondering if it has to be provided by Apple, especially since Samsung has come a long way. So, I don’t know what to do.

    What’s attracting me to the Note 3? Battery capacity/swapping for a new battery, expandable storage, 3GB of RAM, being able to run two apps on the screen at once, even higher def videos (and yeah, maybe even the stylus).

    I’m impressed with the 6 Plus, but the added features I just mentioned make the Note 3 a potential alternative.

    I’ve been loyal to Apple, but have I been blindly loyal? Plus, for the past few years, I’ve been jailbroken, and I find it hard to go back to a non jailbroken iPhone (and the Note can do a lot of what I’m looking for). Damn, on Android I can even get Movie Box (Show Box) without have to go through the process of jailbreaking.

    I’m used to iOS, and sheesh, I must have spend over a thousand bucks over the years in the AppStore, so clearly I’d be taking a hit there. And I have AppleTV. So, that matters, too.

    But can anyone offer me advice? I understand that I’m posing these questions to a primarily Apple based audience, but I’m confident that some of you can offer objective input.

    Thanks for taking the time.

      Note 3 is a beautiful phone. You will love it! Has really fun features. You may like customizing and ease of use with that and the Note 3 has that and the resources to do so. Apple is great also, however it’s specs are limited to stock Apple. If u jailbreak, it can cause strain on the resources on iphone, thus slowing the phone, low memory leak reboots etc. Apple has a great Eco-system such as Mac, appletv, Apple pay, watch, carplay etc. Apple is the ease of use and their garden that makes apple cool. Jailbreak is awesome as well, however you want to be careful with tweaks you select (and same goes for android) as it can mess up the experience on a phone. Ultimately, it’s the same and only personal preference. I think u should try the note and i guarantee you will not be disappointed. You will only miss Apples “wall garden.” Hopefully this helps. Apple stuff plays so nicely together as Android is not quite there yet, however I’m sure eventually they will.

      note 4 drops in oct.

    • JasonL1C4

      The note 4 is coming from out in October and looks like a really good phone. It has a bigger and better display than the 6+ and a bigger battery, more RAM, the S Pen, and all around more features. i would say get the note 4, but considering you’ve spent thousands of dollars in the app store, and you have an apple TV, the 6+ looks like a good option too. It depends on weither or not you’re willing to give up your investment in the app store. If you are then definantly get the Note 4 when it comes out. If not, then get the 6+

      Listen the thing is with android is its not bad of an OS heck in using android phone as I type this. However there are a lot of drawbacks when an android phone is used. Think tabs inn storage hits like where did my memory go. And random shut downs, as well as the apps selection are not in the same abundance and quality in the app store.. Now you no huh see the note 3 as a worthy alternative but trust me when I tell you that if you are an apple person you will switch back

    I wonder if we’ll be able to pre-order the cases as well. I have to order my phone through T-Mobile, but would love to order one of the cases from Apple for in-store pickup.

  • Khail

    What will be time be in my country? i’m from Trinidad & Tobago. Help me out!

  • Lucas Dallaverde

    How much time do I have to pick my iphone after buy?

    • alfonso hall

      if you do the digital que on the 19th, i believe they give you the whole day. not sure about internet pre orders for in store pick up

  • Nathan

    I really hope they do pre-orders with the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6 Plus S. I hated having to call all of my radioshacks in my area last year just to find an iPhone 5s.

  • alfonso hall

    i really hope they ship these in store pick up phones separate from the store stock. would suck for people waiting in line to miss out. Im so ready to stay up until 3am on the east coast… lol

  • Miguel Bisono

    me i put the addres of my job for de shiping?

  • totallymichael

    Does anybody remember how long it usually takes to receive the iPhone if you choose to have it shipped? Also, if you choose in-store pickup is there a chance that they may still sell out or is there a 100% chance that you’ll be able to pick it up on the 19th?

    • I think that depends on your check out options. If pre-ordered and depending on the state, you may receive it before the 19th. 1-3 days early to be exact from what I’ve seen happen with previous iPhones.

      • totallymichael

        Whoa, really? So people camp out for weeks to get the iPhone on the day-of, but I can sit on my ass and preorder and possibly get it before them? That rules.

      • Louie

        Really ? I had no idea I’m assuming people would be emailed they could pick it up

      • The deliveries on rare occasions arrive a few days early.

  • Can you do this throught the Apple Store App on iphone?

  • David Truong

    If i preorder the iphone 6 plus at sprint, can do instore pickup? or is that just an apple store thing

  • TwinSon

    Gotta do it in store since I’m using JUMP from T-Mobile. Oh well no big deal. Still excited!!!

  • Felipe Moscoso Cruz

    Does someone know if it’s possible to pick it up one month after the release? The thing is that I’m from The Netherlands and I’m going to visit New York in mid-October. Since iPhones are a lot cheaper in the US compared to Europe, I want to get mine there. Of course, I don’t want to walk into the store and then have them tell me it’s out of stock. What do you guys think? Pre-order? Or will it be available in stores by then?

  • jr

    If you order on the Att Website, when will it be delivered to you. I want the iphone 6 plus by Sept 19 b/c I travel on Sept 21st. The Att website is saying mailing might take 14-21 days???

  • becoolyolanda

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    If you chose delivery at checkout, can you go back and choose in store pickup?

  • becoolyolanda
