As we first told you six days ago, Apple Stores in Canada will indeed be selling unlocked iPhone 5s units at launch day, this Friday, September 20 starting at 8AM. This is a change from last year’s retail launch (which we also first told you about), where unlocked sales did not happen for the iPhone 5. Some of you have asked for further confirmation–well here it is.
According to the six Apple stores we contacted (Richmond Centre, Pacific Centre, Rideau, Metrotown, Oakridge, Eaton Centre), all confirmed iPhone 5s sales would start at 8AM local time this Friday, just as our source mentioned. So get your beach chair and prepare to start lining up Thursday night! Who’s lining up?
