The Apple Store is Down Ahead of iPhone 6 Pre-Orders [u]

The Apple Store is now down, ahead of iPhone 6 pre-orders, set to start at 12:01AM PDT/3AM EDT.

This time around, Canadians will have the option for Reserve and Pickup for their pre-order as well. This means you can reserve a phone and the Apple Store will email you when it’s ready to be picked up.

Screenshot 2014 09 11 21 10 13

Be sure to check out our Canadian iPhone 6 pre-order and launch guide for all the info you need to know. The countdown is on folks…

Update: This trick works to order via the Apple Store app, while the Reserve and Pick Up system is now live.

  • Chris Zhu

    Sweet! can’t wait. Just wondering, does anyone know if we can reserve iPhones for pickups on the Apple mobile app?

  • That’s the big question. We’ll find out soon enough.

  • Chris Zhu

    Thanks Gary πŸ˜€ According to your other post you said the best way to preorder is with the app, but I’m not sure if reserving for pickup works on there.

  • acdscdscsc

    best website everrrr

  • Riddlemethis

    i know we can order items via the US Apple app, not sure about the app in Canada.

  • Mirana

    just a quick question, PDT would be the Vancouver, BC’s time right?

  • Shaun

    Yes. Pacific Daylight Time

  • Have a web browser open too at the same time, just in case πŸ™‚

  • Ruv you too

  • I used the Canadian Apple Store app to order the iPad Air and iPhone 5s.

  • Correct!

  • bspence88

    Does anyone know if the reservation system guarantees you get it on launch day? I’m sorta leaning towards ordering by mail cause I know it will come in time.

  • Yes, chat said if you are able to get reserve and pickup tonight, you get it on Sept 19. If you know your UPS man and his habits, even better to order online.

  • acdscdscsc

    Ok so

    Wind mobile – $40 month/2 years (for comparisons sake)
    40 x 24 = 960
    phone – *850 unlocked plus tax = 962
    to cancel my phone plan – $240
    all together = $2162

    phone to upgrade incl tax – $370
    cost to upgrade phones – $180
    telus – $75 a month/2 years = $1800
    all together = $2350

    I guess I’ll buy it unlocked πŸ™‚

  • Runduarsted38

    nice

  • Ben

    anyone knoww how long the site will take to be back up?

  • Mirana

    Thanks!

  • Magrat22

    54 minutes..should be back up at 12 pst.

  • 12:00-12:01AM PDT…might be delayed. Use the Apple Store iOS app!

  • stephenontario

    What’s the pricing on these things anyway? On contract (Bell)

  • dke850

    Unless you have gift cards to use! Then you are stuck with the online store.

  • jack

    30 min and counting πŸ™‚

  • This is one online order where you want to checkout ASAP! Do the gift cards later over the phone if you can or something…

  • Eric

    Is it worth to get the 128GB 6 and 6+ in Gold as a good investment for resale or simply 64GB will do? I need to buy an iMac so need some cash πŸ˜›

    I got 2 128GB 6+ using viber and whatsapp, shipping on the 19th!!!! (f*cking opus)

  • dke850

    This is ridiculous. Still nothing here in Banff.

  • the6ee6

    neither here in YEG

  • Sumit Sekhri

    Having trouble adding to Cart now.

  • Geoffrey Spencer

    Still down on MacBook but up on iPad app but cannot pre-order. Apple screwed up big time. Now 4:07 AM

  • Jason

    I got through eventually as well 128 6+. It took forever and kept timing out. Gave up on the case.

  • I never wanted to be an apple customer anyway. I’d rather be a LUMBER JACK in British Columbia! Leaping from tree to tree…

  • Ben

    there are 64GB 6+ available for Sep 19 shipping on iPad app … guys jump on it

  • Jesse

    If you want to reserve in store you need to go to retail page!! And sign in with your apple ID!!! I got a slot for 8:00-9:00am. They make you pick the store then off or on contract then the type of iPhone.

  • the6ee6

    can I jump on you

  • Steve

    Finally got through!!! Use Netscape Navigator version 1.0
    Pre-Ordered 50 iPhone 6 silver 64GB

  • Steve

    not gold…the black ones though!

  • k-os

    I managed to get a 6+/128 GB Gold through the App. I wanted a 64GB Silver but oh well. Be patient. It will all of a sudden just break though on the App.

  • it’s max 4 by account. nice trolling!

  • ben

    LOL … go to bed you nut …

  • Sumit Sekhri

    Appears to be true. It was letting me check out. Waiting o the 6 Grey though.

  • Pouya Hakimifard

    i got my iphone 6+ 64 gb through ipad app

  • T33BS

    I placed an order, then played around with the cart system and seen this time they took me to the applecare+ option. Which I wanted the first time! so now i have the 6+ 64gb in my cart with applecare+ wondering what to do ….

  • PKNY

    i just ordered finally via iPad (iPhone 6 plus 64 space grey). took a while but i got my confirmation email

  • the6ee6

    I reserved one from southgate Edmonton apple store, just going to f*cking pick it up in person, need to sleep seriously

  • Tyler

    I can’t even get onto the retail site. What exactly did you do?

  • Magrat22

    Why are there so many John’s on here? Super odd.

  • pat

    why is website still down?

  • PS

    Never had the option to reserve and the app was timing out to often to risk looking for the option. At least I know the UPS guy well enough.

  • the6ee6

    GUYs not joking like that ass Opus, if you don’t mind walking into a retail store on the 19th, reserve one now, much easier, everyone good night here from edmonton

  • Martin

    6+ 64GB Gold now ships in 3-4 weeks. Glad I was able to order one earlier. Received my confirmation at 3:25am EST. Delivers 19/9-23/9. Do we still have to visit a store to buy the AppleCare+, or can we do it on the website or over the phone when we receive our iPhone?

    Ordered 2 x iPhone 6 Plus Space Grey

    Guys here is what I found on iPad (iphone does not work for me):

    Go to Pre-order page:

    Select iPhone 6 Plus 5.5-inch display
    Select Colour (only Space Grey has worked)
    Select Storage (only 64GB has worked so far)
    Select SIM-Free

    * At this point once you hit SIM-Free you have to wait (DO NOT KEEP HITTING IT). If there is an error the message will appear “An error occurred trying to fulfill your request. Please try again later.”

    Hit OK then tap SIM-Free again to reload (this is all background processing, you will not know so do not keep tapping it). Keep doing this till you can add to cart.

    Once added to cart, the same error will keep appearing, keeping doing the same thing by tapping the add to cart till it goes through.

    Once it has been added to cart, you can checkout. (if you are smart you will change the quantity to 2 before checking out.

  • Guest

    How are you guys able to add to cart via the app? I’m seeing the shipping dates between 19-23, but no “add to cart” button. Keep pushing on all the buttons to no avail

  • Sumit Sekhri

    All the 6’s seem to work now except the 64gb Grey. The one I want ahhhh

  • cruisn76

    It was mentioned before it went live that the iOS app was the way to go. Thank you Gary for the info

  • Pran

  • Jesse

    No I was on the website with my laptop

  • Tyler

    Thanks. Still trying to get on.

  • Guest

    Just so everyone knows that you can reserve it online here is a pic of my confirmation for my reservation! πŸ™‚

  • Jon

    Hi guys just a heads up the reserve to pick up is available. Most 6+ in 64 (actually i think every one is) are out but 16 and 128 available. You can reserve in store, pick a time and if you want contract or not. iphone 6 on the other hand has no issues.

  • Jesse

    I second! this I just did that 20 mins ago!

  • Testify

    I did that and I got confirmation email saying it is reserve… Not sure if I’m sure to have a iPhone on 19th tho ?

  • Pejman

    got to your account tab, open account setting, tap on credit info and clock save, tab on address and click save.

    try again

  • Pejman

    how to reserve to pick up from store with iPhone APP ?

  • Hasan C

    how do you reserve online, where did you go exactly, plz help

  • Hasan C

    where are you going, to do the reservation? plz

  • Dave from Ontario

    Got through on ipad store app, 6+ 16 gig, when it says available to ship, keep clicking sim free, eventually a price will show and you are given the option to add to cart, if add to cart fails keep trying to add to cart.

  • iFone

    there is no way to reserve for pick up through the iphone app

  • iFone

    also got the i6, 64gb, ships next week

  • Tyler

    I swear there is no blue button to click

  • Shri

    Finally worked … Now a reservation for pick up as well as a pre order πŸ™‚

  • Pejman

    how did u reserve for pick up ?

  • DaveMcG

    sigh, URL being held…. www DOT apple DOT com/ca/retail/

  • Hasan C

    how did you reserve for pick up plz?

  • Jesse

    It’s not really a button. It just says “Pre-order now and get free shipping or [reserve now] for pickup at an Apple Retail Store. You can also buy at the
    Apple Retail Store beginning at 8:00 a.m. on September 19.*” then you just click on the “reserve now” part that is blue in colour.

  • Billdozer

    I’ve been trying hard to give Apple $1079.00 for space grey iPhone 6 Plus 128gb since midnight with 0 success. Please Apple, take my money. πŸ™

  • Tyler

    Finally showed up. Reserved 128 +
    Thanks for the help πŸ™‚

  • DaveMcG

    Once there, look for the RESERVE NOW link. Just got a 128GB 6+ ready for pickup at Southgate Friday morning. Can only reserve one device this way though.

  • Hasan C

    where did you go to do that plz?

  • Jesse

    NP!! I was just so frustrated myself when I was trying to figure out how to reserve it that when I did finally figure it out I just had to share how I did it!

  • iFone

    no holes. with the iphone/ipad app many of us have been able to order, including yours truly

  • Jesse
  • Robert

    if I wait in line on sept 19th do I have to pay for a contract??

  • Cloe

    Does apple ever ship before the estimated shipping date? Finally added a 6+ but 3-4 weeks shipping…

  • dke850

    Well, had to use the app… which means the $610 in gift cards I was planning on using are now not useful to me (for this purchase). But I have a gold 6+ 128 GB. yippee. zzzzzz

  • Jesse

    Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page of apple canada page then click on apple retail store. Then right where it says reserve now click on that. Then your off to the races! (After you click on the you have to select the model and store then ON THE RIGHT SIDE click get started.

  • DaveMcG

    See my post below, do the in store pickup. it is working just fine. No need to line up and no contract required in any case (if you decide to line up).

  • Nafizur

    what did you do?

  • DaveMcG

    I posted the URL.. just change the DOT to . It wouldn’t let me post the full URL.

  • Pejman

    tnx πŸ™‚

  • huy

    Ordered through iPhone app, had to keep waiting for the model I wanted it eventually came available from unavailable.

  • dke850

    Just had to leave it with all the selections on the app and ADD TO CART finally popped up. Frustration. Delivery in…. a month. Boo. Now bed. Meetings in 3 hours.

  • Nafizur

    what did u keep pressing?

  • Dave from Ontario

    To clarify when I say keep hitting, hit once wait for response, if error message pops up hit again and wait, same thing for the add to art, sorry I wasn’t clear.

  • Hasan C

    sweet, thanks

  • Robert

    they will come available when they are ready

  • Nafizur

    man. i was able to add it to cart, now i can’t check out. i put in my info and says it was interrupted.

  • kt

    I just got one out of luck it said 2-3 weeks though, i just kept switching between the silver and grey on the iPhone app with 128 selected then it finally gave me the option to purchase the grey, at 2:52 mountain time

  • huy

    I just kept switching between the different models colours and sizes until it became available again.

  • Robert

    Thanks Dave! just not sure what time I wanna pick it up at.

  • Nafizur

    did you get an error when checking out.. interruption

  • Robert

    yeah but I tried again till it worked.. almost time for a new mac too. keys are getting stuck πŸ˜›

  • Nafizur

    finally! got one iPhone 6 gold 64 and 2 6 plus 64gb in gold and grey..goodnight

  • Robert

    if you’re on your iPad, click the price till it adds it to the cart. keep trying!!

  • Robert

    I bet apple has now collected over $1 billion dollars in orders

  • Nafizur

    so looks like the 6 you can still get by launch date.. 6 plus all gone and have to wait 3-4 weeks

  • Robert

    if I don’t want a certain colour can I return it??

  • Billdozer

    I just purchased a 6 plus 128gb space grey through the app

  • Billdozer

    They do exist!

  • Cruisn76

    Yea, email confirmed sept 19-23 delivery

  • Nafi

    Website is working and it’s quick. No error but no pick up option

  • Opus

    How am I joking? I spent nearly an hour on the app using my iPad trying to place an order. By the time I got through to order, it gave me Oct 2-7 as the delivery date on my confirmation. Have you even tried like the rest of us. geez. And for the heck of it, I placed an order for the Silver 64GB 6 Plus and it gave me 9/19-9/23 at the time.
    I have ordered online at every iPhone launch and this year has been THE worst experience ever.

  • Canadachick

    I just ordered a 6 for pickup at the Eaton Centre… on the confirmation email it says they’ll even give me a credit for my old iphone (if I want)… Anybody know what value they offer for 5S 64G?

  • Parksy

    I’ve never tried to reserve anything through Apple at 3AM EST and after this morning I likely will never do it again. I was lucky to get a 64GB 6+ in Slate within a minute of the app starting to work but couldn’t add a case. This one should arrive on launch day. I was also hoping to get a 64GB 4.7″ in White at the same time but it wouldn’t load. After 1.5 hrs I gave up and went to sleep. I woke up at 6:45 EST and the website was “normal” again. I proceeded with the order for the 4.7″ version and didn’t notice I’d also had a 5.5″ in my cart. I processed the order half asleep and now have an extra phone coming. These ones won’t be coming until the beginning and end of October. I guess I’ll be trying to sell an extra phone.

  • DaveMcG

    Huh.. I didn’t notice that. Let me know if you find out. I checked Ebay for my wife’s old 4S and was surprised it could fetch $150-$200 still. My 5S has been dropped and has some damage to the corner.. Wonder if Apples trade in would be more than Ebay in that case.

  • opus

    f*u too. i was speaking of my order for the gold 6+ f**k off moron

  • Magrat22

    Just return it to the Apple Store if it’s unopened they’ll take it back and refund you the money.

  • Sterling Archer

    You don’t even have to go to the store, you can ship it back for free and get a full refund.

  • I was told by Apple chat, 15 calendar days to return for a refund, and Apple will give you a pre-paid return label. Even if box is opened, no restocking fees.

  • anon

    This ordering experience was an absolute and utter gong show. I was so disappointed that I was up at midnight and ready to order precisely at the start “of the show,” and yet the curtain never came up for me for 2 hours – ridiculous on so many levels. The fact that the web system was down and the iPad app and iPhone app were half working/fully work is abysmal. NOT impressed!

  • HK

    Gary, I have a question .. if you buy a phone from Rogers (no term), how does that compare to buying the phone from Apple and swapping sim cards? In my opinion, there should be no difference because you are not changing plans? Correct? I just had a Customer care person tell me that even if you buy on a no term basis, you will have to change plans. I am sure she was wrong. Can you confirm?

  • If you’re a Rogers user, it shouldn’t make a difference. The only thing is it’s not unlocked, like from Apple. At launch, Rogers will most likely try to sell only to contracts/upgrades vs outright.

  • HK

    I am debating getting the ip6 from Apple directly and considering my options. My ip5 plan run to Oct 2015; I tried to verify whether the discounts I am currently entitled to .. whether they will be maintained after Oct 2015 and was told that they expired after Oct 2015. So even if I do not upgrade and keep using the ip5 and continue with my current plan, there will be an increase in what I pay after Oct 2015. Any comments?

  • HK

    I also tried to speak with Loyalty considering I have been with Rogers for 15+ years .. did not get transferred, however. Was instead offered one of the following 2 plans:

    $75/month + GR fees of $2.53

    Features include:
    * 6GB of Data
    *Unlimited Canada-wide calling
    *Unlimited messaging Canada-wide (picture, video and text)
    *Call Display
    *Mini Voicemail

    $80/month + GR fees of $2.53

    Features include:
    *8GB of Data
    *Unlimited Canada-wide calling
    *Unlimited messaging Canada-wide (picture, video and text)
    *Call Display
    *Mini Voicemail
    Was told that the normal price is $125 and $145 respectively.
    Value packs are extra .. but would only provide visual vm, name display and who called.
    Is this what others have been offered? Apparently, we will no longer be offered loyalty discounts ..

  • Depends. If you were on some sort of retention plan, credits expire after your contract period. But if it was a market plan, it should say the same going month to month.

  • HK

    Gary, is this the type of plans others have been offered? Do you know? Thanks.
