    iPhone 6 Pre-Orders Start This Friday, Release Date Set for September 19



    The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available for pre-order starting this Friday, September 12, with the actual shipping date arriving a week later on Friday, September 19. That latter Friday will also be when they appear for purchase in physical Apple Store locations.

    Pre-orders will be done through the online Apple Store, and the pricing has been set to start at $199 for an iPhone 6 with two-year contract subsidy. The iPhone 6 Plus starts $100 higher with a two year contract subsidy at $299. Both of the entry-level models have 16GB of storage, but the next model up for both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus offers 64GB of storage.

    If you have a desire to pickup the iPhone 6 and get your hands on one relatively early in the release cycle, it is highly recommended to participate in pre-orders or to wait in a line at an Apple Store. The iPhone routinely sells out upon launch and is often backordered for several weeks, and the iPhone 6 is unlikely to be any different. It’s not yet known when exactly pre-orders will begin, but 12AM PST (midnight) is not unusual. Ambitious individuals will likely begin lining up at Apple Stores relatively soon so they can buy one on release day.

    Sandwiched in between the iPhone dates is iOS 8, which will be released on September 17 as a free download for other compatible devices. The Apple Watch will be available sometime in “early 2015″.

    :rofl: I'm starting to find that things are getting too small also. I've always hoped that Apple would make something in a size between the iPad Mini and an iPhone. The 6+ could fit the bill so I guess I might go check it out...

    How to back up and prepare your old iPhone for sale or trade-in ahead of Apple's iPho



    With preorders for Apple's next-generation iPhone beginning tonight, AppleInsider takes a look at the precautions iPhone owners planning to sell or trade their old handset for a brand-new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus need to take before divesting themselves of their passé device.


    Backups

    Before taking another step, you should ensure that you've backed up your data — there's no worse feeling than realizing your contacts, photos, or Angry Birds saves have disappeared into the ether. Most iPhone owners have likely enabled automatic backups via iCloud; If you aren't sure, you can check the status by navigating to Settings → iCloud → Storage & Backup.

    If iCloud Backup is already enabled, look just below at the "Last Backup" timestamp. Since iPhones will only perform automatic backups when locked, plugged in, and connected to Wi-Fi, the latest backup could be as much as two weeks old, and you'll want to run a new one before proceeding by tapping "Back Up Now."





    This week, Apple launched new, cheaper iCloud storage plans, so if your iPhone is too large to back up to a free 5-gigabyte account, you can add more space to ensure you won't lose any of your precious data.

    Alternatively, users weary of uploading their data to the cloud can back up to their computer using iTunes. Connect your iPhone to your computer with the Lightning cable, then open iTunes — you can either sync the device, or open File → Devices → Back up to bring up the backup menu. To start a backup, right-click your iPhone and select Backup Now.


    Data Destruction

    Wiping your iPhone is fairly trivial. Once you've completed your backup, tap Settings → General → Reset, then tap "Erase All Content and Settings."

    You'll be prompted to confirm that you really want to erase your device. Users who've upgraded to iOS 7 and enabled Find My iPhone will need to enter their Apple ID, thanks to iOS 7's anti-theft provisions — this will allow the phone to be removed from your account as part of the erasing process.

    That's it. Once you've completed these steps, it's safe to sell off your old phone and get ready for your shiny new one.

    Apple reportedly pushes back iPhone 6 rollout in China due to regulatory problems



    According to a report from The New York Times, Apple is facing issues in China that have led the California tech giant to delay the launch of its latest devices in that country. While many countries will be getting the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus on September 19th, Chinese carriers have been told not to expect it on that date.

    Last year’s iPhone 5s and 5c were the first iPhones to hit China the same day as the United States, whereas previous devices had been made available several months after their initial launches. The Times notes that all three of the country’s major carriers were already preparing staff to begin sales on the 19th, and the companies had already bought advertising campaigns for the phones with the expectation that they would have it on day one.

    Apple hasn’t given the carriers or media any explanation as to why this launch was suddenly delayed, but it seems Chinese wireless regulators have not yet approved the device for use within the country. The Chinese government has previously accused the iPhone of posing a threat to its national security after it was revealed that the U.S. National Security Administration had been collecting data from smartphones without permission.

    Apple to offer in-store iPhone 6 pickups for online preorders



    Departing from its usual product launch operations, Apple will have iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models waiting at brick-and-mortar stores on Sept. 19 for customers placing preorders online.

    As noted in an iPhone banner ad on Apple's retail store webpage, the company is initiating in-store pickups for the upcoming iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, both of which go up for preorder at 12:01 a.m. Pacific this Friday.

    Alternatively, physical Apple Store locations are scheduled to open at 8 a.m. on launch day, but if past years are any indication of demand, lines could be an issue.

    Apple's ad reads, "The big day is coming. Pre-order iPhone 6 and have it shipped to you for free, or pick it up in store. You can also buy at the Apple Retail Store beginning at 8:00 a.m. on September 19."

    When asked about the preorder pickup process, Apple representatives said customers can designate a pickup location when placing a preorder reservation online, then bring in a Web receipt or registered email to present to an Apple Store greeter next Friday. With the phones set aside, new owners will also have the option of setting up the device in-store, though wait times may vary.

    Workers were less clear on in-store pickup availability, however. Anticipating high demand, there may not be enough supply to keep the option open through to launch day, as retail locations need stock on hand for walk-in customers. As with most major iOS device launches, Apple says supplies may be limited and will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Apple previously offered in-store pickup for the iPhone 4 in 2010, but discontinued the service for subsequent models due to initial supply constraints.

    Preorder vs Purchasing in store

    quick question, this is opinion based.

    I am purchasing the iphone 6 and would like to get it as soon as possible. Unfortunatley, i will not be around september 19th to purchase it. My first question is if i can preorder from AT&T and pick up at the store. (basically reserving a copy) But if not would you recommend pre ordering tonight or going to the store saturday with a chance of it being sold out?

    Im open to all responses and feel free to voice your opinion!

    Going to the store would seem to be a "good luck" choice in my opinion.

    Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus now available for preorder



    Apple and its partner wireless carriers on Friday initiated preorders for the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets, though the purchase process was a harrowing experience for customers who saw persistent issues with the Online Apple Store.

    Cellular providers were first to have Apple's new iPhones up for order on their respective websites just after midnight Pacific time, but the Online Apple Store saw massive delays, likely due to overwhelming demand.

    At the time of this writing, the Web version of Apple's store is still down for many customers in the U.S., though some have reported luck purchasing through the iOS app. The solution is not foolproof, however, as many users are seeing error messages seemingly indicative of syncing issues with wireless providers' sales and upgrade eligibility systems.

    Noticeably absent from the initial preorder round was T-Mobile, the only U.S. carrier to offer off-contract handsets at launch. All other carriers were showing full availability with arrival dates of Sept. 19.

    On-contract pricing for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 starts at $199 for 16GB, then moves to $299 for the 64GB version and maxes out at $399 for 128GB. The iPhone 6 Plus is also available in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities for $299, $399 and $499, respectively. When available, the contract-free T-Mobile version will start at $749 for the iPhone 6 and $849 for the iPhone 6 Plus, moving up in $100 increments depending on storage.

    Apple is launching the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in nine countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, U.S. and the UK. Alternatively, customers can purchase the iPhone at Apple Stores on Sept. 19.

    Those looking to trade in their old hardware to offset the cost of a new handset can visit AppleInsider's Trade-In Price Guide for the latest deals.


    Update: Due to server communication issues with certain cellular providers like AT&T, Apple has resorted to reserving iPhone 6 handsets for later processing.

    In addition, those able to get through via the iOS App Store app are reporting iPhone 6 Plus stock outs for launch day units.


    Update 2: The Online Apple Store returned to service at around 2:45 a.m. Pacific, nearly three hours after partner carriers began accepting preorders. The store is reflecting low supply of iPhone 6 Plus units, with most 16GB models shipping in 7 to 10 days, while 64GB and 128GB versions are showing 3 to 4 weeks ship-by dates. iPhone 6 stock appears to be holding steady at this time.

    Also available are off-contract iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets from T-Mobile, which were previously absent from the Apple Store app when preorders went live at midnight.
