When Apple starts accepting pre-orders for their iPhone 6 tomorrow, expect a huge surge of people clamoring to reserve their phones. As one or both of these iPhones are anticipated to be limited at launch, you might want to diversify your search if you intend to snap one up. We’ve heard a lot of chatter about where you might be able to get your hands on an iPhone, so here is the list so far.
Lines at Apple Stores for new iPhones are legendary by now, with many eager fans camping out for days or weeks to get their hands on the newest Apple flagship as early as possible. The experience may end up getting a bit more organized, though, as Apple introduces a digital queue for customers who want the latest device.
When the Apple store goes dormant, it’s usually due to a new product coming in. Even when the site was slightly revamped for iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, there was no noticeable lull in the action. Now, the Apple Store has fallen to a blank screen with a “we’ll be back soon” message.
After T-Mobile broke down the subsidy wall, all other carriers of note followed suit.

If you managed to bust your iPhone 5S screen, there may be some positive news. Sources claim Apple will be adding the iPhone 5S screen to their replacement and repair program. The repairs aren’t cheap by any means, but they aren’t nearly as steep a price as buying a new phone.
We’ve heard plenty of rumors about when Apple would officially announce the iPhone 6, but when will you be able to get your mitts on it? While a simultaneous announcement/launch would be nice, it’s likely not th case this time around. If the latest reports are true, we’ll have to wait a full month before seeing the bigger iPhone in stores.
