According to AppleInsider, Apple is will begin accepting iPhone 5 Personal Pickup Reservations tonight at 10 p.m. for U.S. customers.
Apple’s retail employees have begun informing customers that Personal Pickups for iPhone 5 orders will begin this evening at 10 p.m., AppleInsider has been told. Customers will be able to purchase their iPhone 5 online, and stores with inventory will hold the purchase for pickup the next day.
Shipments for the program are being received by stores today and apparently, you’ll be able to access the reservation program via the iPhone 5 page on Apple’s website. An Apple Store employee we spoke to mentioned, that you would soon be able to reserve your iPhone 5 online but did not mention an exact date. It seems kind of odd that Apple would start this program when there are still a good amount of people who have not received their pre-ordered iPhone yet.
