Apple's online store goes offline ahead of iPhone 6s pre-orders

In a few hours, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pre-orders are set to go live, and, as is customary for such events, Apple's online store has gone down in preparation. The store should be back up right at 12:01 a.m. Pacific, just in time for clamoring buyers to put in their pre-orders.

If you're still mulling over which model you should pick up, be sure to check out our rundown on what to consider for each size, color, and storage option available.

  • It's down for me as well. The iPhone app won't work either. Sent from the iMore App
  • I forgot that the store reopens at 12:01 pacific. I used to live on the west coast, so I'm not used to having to wait until 3:01 eastern. Rookie mistake! Sent from the iMore App
  • i can't get through!
  • Same here No luck!
  • Still not up for me
  • Just placed my order for the 6s Plus 64 GB in Rose Gold through the app. Yay! Confirmation email says it delivers on 9/25. Had originally tried on the AT&T web site, which allowed me to go through the ordering process before midnight, but it showed a delivery date sometime mid-late October so I didn't complete the order. Glad I followed others' advice and used the Apple Store app.
    Good luck everyone!
  • And once again... 3:01am comes, goes, and apple.com still offline...
  • Finally. Got my 128 space gray 6s+ from apple.com with 9/25 ship date, and my wife's 64 rose gold 6s from att.com with 9/24(!) ship date. I'm going back to bed...

  • As of 12:11 PST, still showing the "wait what we have in store" page, but rest of Apple website is working. Already pre-ordered my iPhone 6s Plus through my Verizon account online. I was actually able to complete the order BEFORE midnight PST. Imagine my surprise and delight!

  • I wish they would have said the reservation for the new Apple Upgrade system was different than preorders... Still got my appointment for 8am on launch date at my Apple Store. Now the long wait until iOS 9 drops and the longer wait for Sept 25th ;) Sent from the iMore App

  • Placed my order with Verizon at about 0255 eastern. 64GB Space Grey 6S Plus
  • Got a iPhone 6s in Silver and Rose Gold (both 64 GB). SUCCESS!

  • No confirmation email yet that is weird Sent from the iMore App
  • Had to use the apple store app on my iPad to order. Still waiting for the confirmation emails.
    Website still not accepting orders 45 minutes later...
  • I just checked at 8:30 am eastern you can still preorder the 64 and 128 gb models with a 9/25 delivery date. That may be a bad sign for Apple as usually a popular release will be back ordered within an hour or so of preorders.
