At precisely 12:01 a.m. this morning, Apple was supposed to make the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus available for preorder. According to a number of reports, that just didn’t happen. In fact, it took until approximately 12:20 a.m. for the online retail store to be “open” for business. The site didn’t really get on track until nearly 3:00 a.m.
Additionally, third-party carriers were having issues keeping up with demand. AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon had reports of website crashes. Now that everything is running more smoothly, the iPhone 6 Plus models are sold out.
