iPhone 5 reservation system goes live


Eager iPhone 5 buyers can now pre-purchase the phone during the night and then pick it up during the day. Known as Personal Pickup, Apple’s online reservation system comes to life every night between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. During those hours, you can reserve and pay for your new iPhone. Current smartphone owners can also check their upgrade status from the site. You can then pick up your iPhone the next business day at your local Apple Store. Without the reservation, Apple cautions that “limited quantities may also be available for in-store pickup on a first-come, first-served basis.” Read the full story at CNET.
