While ‌iPhone 12 mini‌ and Pro Max pre-orders are launching in more than 50 countries and regions on November 6, certain countries, customers in Brazil, South Korea, and more than 25 other countries and regions will be able to order the new devices on November 20, and customers in Thailand will be able to purchase them on November 27.

Those hoping to get a device on launch day should make sure to pre-order right away, as there's no word on how much available supply Apple will have and the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro models sold out quickly. Make sure to double check the time and date that pre-orders will be available in your country by visiting your country's Apple Store page.

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. Apple is also making ‌iPhone 12 Pro Max‌ and ‌iPhone 12 mini‌ cases available, as well as Leather Cases for all ‌iPhone‌ models.

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?
