Rogers and Fido have confirmed to us iPhone 6 pre-orders will start this Friday, September 12, via both companies’ reservations systems, which have been used in the past for previous iPhone launches. A company spokesperson sent the following statement via email:
Rogers and Fido customers may begin to reserve starting September 12 at rogers.com/reserve and fido.ca/reserve.
Update: Fido has tweeted their reservations will kick off at 6AM EDT on September 12:
@JasonRounder Reservation opens between 6-7AM ET on the 12th. 🙂 ^mt

Yesterday, we confirmed Fido would be part of the iPhone 6 launch as unlisted landing pages were discovered. TELUS has already confirmed a registration page is live for iPhone 6, while Bell also confirmed with us pre-orders would start this Friday too. Expect the pre-order time to begin at midnight PDT/3AM EDT on Friday.
Again, expect iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus stock to be limited. Last year, iPhone 5s demand overwhelmed Rogers, while again caused hiccups with activations on launch day. TELUS asked customers to visit stores to get device models of their choice based on limited availability.
We suspect the same issues will occur this year too, as iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus mark the biggest changes we’ve seen to the iPhone yet. Don’t forget this time around, new iPhones will most likely result in a minimum $80 per month plan if you’re going to signing a two-year contract.
Are you going to reserving an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus through Rogers or Fido?
