Apple Online Store goes offline ahead of iPhone 6s/Plus pre-orders

Apple’s Online Store is here.

MacDailyNews Take: Get ready, get set…


  1. Fastest way to get iphone 6s will be via the Apple Store App loaded on your iPhone now. I pre-staged the iPhone 6s and doing it on the iPhone to be replaced by the iPhone 6s makes it much simpler than the Verizon site or through a MBP etc etc…..
    Just my 2 cents…..

    GLTA tonight…..!!!

  2. I want a new one but not in a hurry to get one. I’m going into my local Apple Store to see a Genius this weekend with an appt. to swap out my iPhone 6 Plus for a replacement. My iPhone developed that rear camera focus stuck issue a month or so back as many have. But Apple has acknowledged the problem and is covering it, though it’s under Apple Care anyway.

    Still I wonder what initial demand will be like and how long will Apple be under supply siege for it? I think Wall Street is in for a little (as in massive) market demand surprise, even though saner mortals won’t. So long high end Android, been nauseatin’ knowin’ yah.

  3. Last year I ordered the 6 Plus a week after it started selling in the stores and it took over two months for the device to arrive. I learned my lesson and will be preordering the 6s Plus tonight!

  4. anyone else getting page errors?!
    on both Chrome + Safari browsers on Mac i get: “Access Denied” errors
    and on Apple Store app in iPhone it states”Cannot Connect…The Apple Store is momentarily unavailable.”

    not again Apple – this after 49min now…

  5. I tried pre-ordering with a no contract option (i Have AT&T) but could not do it only gave T-Mobile option….wanted to do Apple’s new iPhone upgrade leasing plan? Is this not available on pre-order?
