Three hours after it began taking pre-orders via the Apple Store app, Apple has now begun taking pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus through its official U.S. online store. Currently, all iPhone 6 models are showing a delivery date of September 19, while all iPhone 6 Plus models are estimated to ship in 7-10 business days.

Apple's online store comes back online as many users experienced technical problems while attempting to pre-order both models on the Apple Store app. Several U.S. carriers including AT&T and Verizon have also been experiencing problems with pre-orders, with both of their respective sites crashing for many users. Those interested in buying an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus directly from Apple's website should do so soon, as supplies will likely run out over the next few hours.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will be available in stores beginning next Friday, September 19. The smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is offered in 16, 64, and 128 GB capacities for $199, 299, and $399, respectively, with a two-year contract. Contract-free pricing for the device also begins at $649. Meanwhile, the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus is available in 16, 64, and 128 GB storage capacities for $299, $399 and $499, respectively, with a two-year contract. Contract free pricing for the larger device begins at $749.

Update 3:20 AM: Some iPhone 6 Plus models are now showing an estimated ship date of 3-4 weeks. All iPhone 6 models remain available.

Maybe Apple forget to set their time zone settings?

i wonder when Samsung will post a commercial showing all the dust that collects on their unsold phones because no one cares that they released new models. or the tumbleweed rolling by their announcements.

Apple release's smash servers. Samsung release's do nothing.

Maybe Apple should have designed their site with iWeb.

One of the sloppiest live streams of their keynote, and worst pre-order experience yet.

No, it was a worldwide 'cock-up'.

Store went online in the UK at around 8.40am (should have been 8am) and I ordered his and hers, to be delivered on release day.

I do not think I could, or would have been up at 3am though...., although I do admire the endurance of our cousins over the pond.

I realize supply might be more tight with the 5.5 than the 4.7 but I also have the suspicion that despite all the bashing of the 5.5 that model will turn out to be the more popular one of the two.



Agreed! I think it's likely because it's truly the "newest" model available and the most different/unique. That tends to happen. Remember the freak out when the white iPhone came out. Then the white iPhone 4 craziness. Then of course the gold phone came out and that's all anyone wanted. I think it's the same for the 6 plus.
