After being announced during Apple’s “Hi, Speed” event on Tuesday, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are now available to pre-order. The first iPhone 12 pre-orders are expected to arrive as early as next Friday, October 23, but we expect shipping times to slip quickly throughout the rest of the morning.
The Apple Store app is now back online for some users, so keep checking if you don’t see it quite yet. As usual, it takes time for the Apple Store to fully come back online for everyone.
Update: Shipping times are starting to slip across the board, but especially for the pacific blue configurations. Many new buyers are now be quoted a November 3rd delivery for the pacific blue and certain other configurations.

Finally, keep in mind that Apple is no longer including headphones or a charging brick in the iPhone 12 box this year, citing environmental concerns. You do still get a Lightning to USB-C cable in the box, but if you need a USB-C wall brick, there are plenty of affordable third-party options out there. Apple also has a new lineup of MagSafe accessories, some of which are also now available to order.
Finally, if you’re waiting for the iPhone 12 mini or the iPhone 12 Pro Max, those devices will be available for pre-order on November 6, with the first orders arriving on November 13.
