If you weren’t lucky enough to snag an iPhone 5C pre-order from Apple before they sold out for launch day, or if you plan on getting the iPhone 5S, the only way you’ll get an iPhone on launch day at this point is by standing in line for the official launch. Sales will begin at Apple Stores at 8 AM local time, and around the same time frame for most third-party retailers.
If you don’t want to brave the lines at an Apple Store, there are a number of other retailers also offering the iPhone 5C and 5S! Here’s a list of where you can buy an iPhone for launch day tomorrow – let us know if we have missed one you know of!
Where to Buy an iPhone 5c or 5s
- Apple Retail Stores
- AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint corporate carrier stores.
- Third-party retail stores: Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Radio Shack
Apple Stores will of course have the most stock, and are your safest bet to make sure you get an iPhone 5c or 5s tomorrow. Carrier stores should also have decent stock, and Best Buy usually gets quite a few iPhones in stock as well. Walmart, Target, and Radio Shack typically get less stock, and in some cases certain stores may not get any!
Click the links to visit the store sites. Use the store locator to find one near you – and it’s probably worth calling your local store ahead of time to make sure they’ll have some stock when you get there! Good luck!
