Apple tonight opened up pre-orders for the iPhone 5 at 3 o’clock EST. Despite it being the middle of the night, their servers could not initially handle all of the traffic. We’ve heard of varying success using the Apple Store iOS app. In an odd twist, some including myself have been able to access the Apple Store using Google’s Chrome browser, when Apple’s own Safari would show the store as being down. Other options include carrier stores, which have also had trouble with the onslaught of traffic.
The only option when preordering is to have the iPhone 5 shipped. At the present time, you can preorder for pickup at your local Apple Store.
How did you fare? Were you able to get your late night iPhone 5 order in and if so, what did you get?
