That was a crazy launch of Apple’s latest iPhone 6. Pre-orders opened on September 12, 2014 at 12:01 am, meaning 9:01 pm HST. But, you couldn’t actually connect to the Apple Store until much later. Heck, I think store.apple.com is still down, nearly two hours later. But the Apple Store apps fared better (maybe by design).
Anyways, after several stalled attempts, I finally got to the iPhone 6 pre-order screens. My goal – 4.7in iPhone 6 in silver with 64 GB (the middle option). Initially, this configuration looked available on the Apple Store app, but clicking elsewhere then coming back caused a screen refresh where mostly all configurations showed “currently unavailable.” Then one combination finally yielded an “add to cart” option – 4.7in silver with 128 GB. While I planned to go beyond my current 32-GB iPhone 5 configuration, Apple’s convenient storage bump to 64 GB was the obvious choice unless none of these were available. So, I succumbed to the hype and proceeded with the purchase of a 128-GB model.
I encountered a few more errors along the way, but a confirmation email seems to verify my iPhone 6 order went through. How about you? Did you get what you wanted?
