After a wait of what seems like forever, the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max pre-orders will get started at 5 a.m. PT or 8 a.m. ET on Friday, November 6. This comes three weeks after those buying iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models went through the same process with varying degrees of success.

Godspeed, intrepid iPhone upgraders!
