The time that Apple fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. On Friday morning, the new iPhone 5s officially became available for sale and the turnout has already been strong. The new iPhone is expected to break opening weekend sales, but if you were unable to head out to a store you may be wondering how you can pick up the device.
There is one obvious answer — order online.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of back orders and an online sale could delay the arrival of your phone, but it also allows you to avoid the hassle of waiting in long lines and dealing with over eager people who would give an arm and a leg just to get the iPhone 5s.
The phone is currently available in all three colors — grey, silver and gold — for the prices of $199 (16GB), $299 (32GB) and $399 for the 64GB version of the device.
With the overwhelming response, the back orders state that you won’t get your phone until “October.”
If you plan to go with the colorful iPhone 5c over the 5s, you will get your phone a lot quicker. The device is expected to ship out in one to three business days.
Let the ordering begin.
