Apple Now Accepting Pre-Orders for iPhone 4S, Unlocked Coming in November

Well after its advertised launch time, Apple has now begun accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 4S at their online Apple Store. Preorders are also available directly from Verizon, Sprint and AT&T. The servers, however, seem overloaded at the time of publishing so may take a while to get your orders in.

The iPhone 4S was introduced earlier this week and includes an A5 processor, faster graphics, an improved 8MP camera as well as the new Siri Voice Assistant.


The iPhone 4S comes in 3 different capacities 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, priced at $199, $299 and $399 respectively with contract. Carrier options in the United States include AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. We posted a detailed price comparison chart earlier today.

Those upfront prices assume that you qualify for a carrier-subsidized device. If you are presently in a contract with your carrier, you may not qualify. Apple provides this online tool to see what your pricing would be.

Apple reveals that in the U.S., the iPhone 4S will be available unlocked starting in November.

The iPhone 4S will also be available in-store on October 14th.

Update: Apple seems to having trouble with accepting pre-orders:

We are sorry, due to huge demand your iPhone 4S can't not be purchased. Feel free to order our new iPod Touch instead.

I can't believe this is happening. Nobody was suppose to want the 4S because it wasn't different enough.

this sucks...app store app won't do it, apple.com won't do it.

these idiots should know they are going to get pounded. this is ridiculous.


Should I be the first to remind everyone that people are starving in many parts of the world? Oh forget it… I'll only get flamed if I do that.

"16 Months for this…. Switching to Android…. Downfall of Apple!!”

And yet demand is great enough to cripple the servers of Apple & Co and stock price is healthy even after wednesday’s tragedy.

Moral of the story? Anti-Apple drama queens are yet again proven to be clueless.

A lame iPad 2 refresh and iPhone 4S? Boy, Apple really didn't do much in 2011. That's fine for the iPad since there aren't any legitimate competitors (yet) but the iPhone is quickly falling behind the pack (android).


Can you explain, other than a larger screen, what you found falling behind on the iphone?
