Apple iPhone 5s release date, time and where to buy


Today is the day that Apple fans have been waiting for. Apple, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless stores will begin selling the devices at 8:00 a.m. when the doors open and the devices are expected to fly off the shelves early and often.

With the new phone set to release, Apple is expecting high sales early on in the process.

“We believe that Apple will likely sell all of the 5Ses they will produce for launch weekend,” Gene Munster said in a Mashable report. He went on to add that he believes there will be 6 million to  8 million units sold in the first weekend, which would surpass the sales of the iPhone 5 on the first weekend.

There are already long lines of people waiting to get the new iPhone 5s, so if you aren’t already in a line, you should probably give up hope of getting your device early.

You can get the iPhone 5s by ordering it online, but with the high demand there are already backorders piling up — especially for the gold version of the new phone.

Will you be picking up the iPhone 5s today or do you plan on waiting awhile to get your hands on the new device? Sound off in the comments section and let us know.

    My husband waited overnight at the Scottsdale Quarter store here in Arizona. He got in line at 9pm with about 20 people ahead of him. I wanted the gold, he the silver. I’m anxiously awaiting his arrival to find out if I’ll get the one I want but based on what I read, probably not…..Just found out he got the last 64G in gold. YAY!!
