Following the announcement of the iPhone 5c on Tuesday, Apple is now accepting pre-orders for the colorful new smartphone through the Apple Store. The iPhone 5S will not be available for pre-order, but both models will arrive in-stores and at doors on September 20th.

If you’d rather try your luck with one of the carrier stores, U.S. customers can also pre-order through the AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, or T-Mobile online stores. Like the Apple Store, these sites tend to crash every year during iPhone pre-orders, and supplies will likely run out quickly, so if you want to pre-order your phone, now is the time to do it. You can find more pre-order info, stores, and deals in our iPhone pre-order guide.
