Just in case it slipped your mind, numerous online merchants will begin taking preorders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as of 12:01 Pacific Time on Friday.
While last year only saw the iPhone 5c being available for preorder, this year will see both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus ready for preorder.
There are a few concerns that, as usual, some models will be in short supply, so you might want to start limbering up your clicking finger around 11:58PM or so. Past years have seen preorders sell out in a matter of minutes, so be ready.
If you have any questions about upgrade availability, be sure to check with your current carrier beforehand, and you might want to check with competing carriers to find out what type of promotions they’re running to entice you to their service.
