Apple Store Reserve and Pick Up Set to Return for the Holidays?

Share:

Back in 2009, Apple setup a reserve and pick up system for the holidays to allow online orders to be picked up at Apple Retail stores from December 15-24. Currently, this option is available for customers that want to purchase a factory unlocked iPhone 4S from Apple.

Now, it appears the Reserve and Pick Up option could be on its way back soon, possibly in time for the holiday season, based on what some users have experienced during their iPhone 4S reserve and pick up check outs. iPhoneinCanada.ca reader @shyguy attempted to reserve and pick up an iPhone 4S at his local Apple Store when he was sent to the following page:

This is what the holiday page from 2009 looked like:

Given the existing implementation of of Reserve and Pick Up for the iPhone 4S, I wouldn’t be surprised if this option did make a come back for the 2011 holiday season for all products. Expect to hear an announcement by the end of the first week of November, if it’s going to happen.

    I’ve been saying this also.. But it only how’s up when there’s a lot of traffic trying to reserve the iPhone 4S at 9pm.

    Does Canada not currently have Reserve and Pick Up?  You’ve been able to do this in the U.S. for quite some time.  Works through the Apple Store iOS app too.

    I hope it works better than their POS iPhone 4S reserve and pickup service.

    Mr. DontLikeAppleRight now. Im pissed at the way the number 1 computer phone retailer and provider has handled this 4s bomb. How could they have 18 months to prepare for a launch and not have at least 20 millions phones ready to go. Apple keep on playin because you control the market right now but those Google brothers, Samsung, Motorolas are taken heed to this diabolic mess that going on. Just plain pathetic.

    If you dont have the 4s yet and are having a hard time getting it like I was guess what I have news for you. Their is a Apple Store App that you can download and reserve your I phone for pick up the next day. Its simple and easy and only for Iphone users so if you dont have a iphone you cant use this app. If you have the 3g 3gs or 4 you can use this app. Its amazing just try it for your self. Not only iphones but all apple devices that are sold online can be purchased threw this app. Just put in your area code select teh Apple store next to you and reserve your phone by pickup next day no later that 6pm. Hope this helps
