Apple offering day-one pickup for iPhone 6 online pre-orders

Apple will reportedly offer iPhone 6 pre-order customers the opportunity to pick up their new smartphones from an Apple Store on the September 19 release date.

Online pre-orders commence at 8am on Friday morning ahead of next week’s on-sale date.

Rather than have it delivered to their homes or workplaces, 9to5Mac appears to have confirmed the devices can be sent straight to retail outlets.

The Personal Pickup option, which the site has verified with several stores and during an online chat with a customer support representative, could ease the process for many shoppers.

According to the report, there’ll be a separate line for pre-order customers so they won’t have to line up alongside who are yet to hand over cash for the device. The representative says the option will be available at most stores while stocks last.

“In regards to store pickup, there will be options available for that at most stores, which will be indicated at the time of your order. The option will exist while supplies last,” the rep wrote.

Apple has offered Personal Pickup in previous years, but not on the hectic first day of sales. We’ve reached out to Apple’s UK representatives to check whether this facility will be offered in the UK too.

Will you be pre-ordering an iPhone 6 on Friday morning? Will you opting for the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch model?
