    Apple has set the date for the iPhone 5 pre-order for September 14th. Did they mention a time or should we assume that it will be at midnight? What have they done with past pre-orders?

    Thanks. I doubt i'll be up for that. Usually though by what time do newly released iPhones get sold out on the first day of pre-order day on Apple.com?

    It really depends. Most people usually go to their local store and stand in long lines for the new iPhone when it's available in stores.

    Awesome! I really hope the pre-order goes smoothly. :)

    I'm in the same time zone as you, so I am just staying up for it, even though I have college classes in the morning.

    I'll be up at 8:30 am cst. I wonder if I would still be able to pre order the iPhone 5 at that time and still receive it on the 21st? Anybody?

    It depends on how many people pre-order and how many they have in stock when it first comes out. Last year pre-order customers got theirs actually surprisingly late.

    Wouldn't hurt to try if you don't feel like getting up or staying up for the pre-order. Worse comes to worse you could try and wait in line at an Apple Store, Cell Carrier Store, or another retailer on the 21st.

    I'm just wondering if there's any difference at all between ordering at midnight and ordering 8 hours later.

    It all depends on how many people actually get/stay up and pre-order. They will have a set number of devices that they can have available for pre-order, anything over that number will be back ordered. No way that we can tell you one way or another on if it will be available at 8 AM.
