Order directly from Apple for best results

I recommend going directly through Apple.com as the fastest way to preorder your new iPhone. Not only is does getting straight from the source ensure you have access to the most stock, but it also makes it super easy to buy AppleCare+ and any accessories you might want with your new iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro, like those MagSafe cases and chargers.

If you want to be super safe, try opening up the Apple Store app on your iPhone or iPad as well as having a browser open on Apple.com up and ready when you order. Sometimes with the influx of people trying to get the phone right at launch, the website or the app can run into problems, so having both options at the ready will help if one service isn't working.
