Apple is set to unveil iPhone 5 during tomorrow’s event that is being held at Yerba Buena Center of Arts. Opposite to the rumors of pre-orders going live on the same day of the event, MacRumors reports that iPhone 5 will be up for pre-orders on Friday, September 14th, two days after the event…
According to new information, Apple is beefing up its support staff in preparation for September 14th preorders, which is this Friday. MacRumors reports:
MacRumors is now hearing that pre-orders may not begin tomorrow following the media event and that they may instead start on Friday morning in a scenario similar to last year’s debut. We’re hearing that certain portions of Apple’s sales support team are significantly increasing their staffing levels beginning at 6:00 AM Eastern on Friday, with a major surge for the initial shift beginning at that time and a sustained level of high staffing for at least the remainder of the day.
The report is still unclear about the exact time of pre-orders going live. Last year, iPhone 4S pre-orders went live at 12:01 Pacific time.
The event is less than 24 hours away now. Tomorrow, we’ll find out about the pre-orders for sure. Stay Tuned!
