Apple’s iPhone 6 Pre-Orders Go Live, Says “Unavailable” But This Trick Worked [u]

Apple’s online store is now back, which means you can pre-order you iPhone 6 to be delivered. But right now the Apple Store online is still down.

However, people have been able to order via the Apple Store app. It still is not letting people order in Canada, saying “unavailable”. But I was FINALLY able to get through. Here’s how I did it…

1. Launched Apple Store iPad app. Went to the configuration page for the iPhone 6 Plus I wanted. Would let me choose configuration but not add to cart, says “unavailable”. What I did was tap on multiple colours, configurations until the add to cart price turned ‘blue’. Then, I just readjusted what configuration I wanted, added to cart successfully. DO NOT TOUCH IPAD CART CHECK OUT TAB.

Once you see the item in the cart (a ‘1’ should show), go to your iPhone and check out via the Apple Store app that way. It worked for me just now for two iPhone 6 Plus orders. Let us know if this worked for you!
