Following pre-orders on November 6, the first ‌‌iPhone 12 mini‌‌ and 12 Pro Max shipments will arrive to customers on Friday, November 13.

Pricing on the ‌‌iPhone 12‌‌ mini starts at $729, though many U.S. carriers are offering a $30 discount that drops the price to Apple's advertised $699 price point. Pricing on the ‌iPhone 12 Pro‌ starts at $1099. Device payment plans and special deals are available through carriers, Apple Card Monthly Installments and Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program, plus device trade-ins are available.

‌HomePod mini‌ pre-orders are launching in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Spain, the UK, and the US, and the ‌HomePod mini‌ will be arriving to customers the week of November 16.

MacRumors, you don’t need to announce to the world the order times. I prefer if most people stay asleep. The last thing I need is for my fellow forum members to get in the way of my mini. Stay out of my way and no one has to get hurt. :P

How does it work?

Do you configure it on their site ahead of time with the options you want - then keep refreshing until finally, the 'Continue' button is available?

Or do you have to wait and start once the pre-order time has passed?

The former.
If you’re in the app, does it refresh itself when preorders go live, or do you need to close and reopen it?
