Impressed by the iPhone 5's hardware design, and unconcerned by the conservative software? You'll want to head over to Apple's site, then, where the phone should now be available for pre-order. It's available right now from the iOS Apple Store app, Verizon, and AT&T. The time of 12.01AM PST should be effective in all of the iPhone 5's first wave of launch countries, including the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, and Germany. If you're in the US, check out our comprehensive buying guide which gives plan breakdowns by carrier along with alternative places to buy the phone itself.
Update: While early pre-orders showed a September 21st ship date, Apple's UK and US stores are now showing an available to ship date of two weeks.
