Will iPad Preorders Go Live After the Event Today?

Last Summer at Apple’s annual WWDC Keynote, the company threw us a curveball. An announcement of updated iPad Pros, including a new 10.5″ model, was expected leading up to the event. However, preorders for the new iPads starting immediately after the event was definitely not. I know this took me by surprise.

It’s Time for Apple to Revamp the Preorder Process

Let me rephrase that- it’s PAST time for Apple to revamp their arcane preorder system. Apple asking people to wake up between midnight and 3 AM (depending on where they live) and fight their way into the queue to get the latest gear within a month or two of launch has just gotten more and more ridiculous as time has gone by.

However, Apple gradually did away with the mass lineups using the preorder process. Now we have ample evidence that this system, at least as it is currently implemented, has also reached its logical limits.

Apple Preorders Start Tomorrow: So Who’s Getting Up at Midnight PST?

Most of the sane people you know who are Apple users and are interested in upgrading their phones or watches will just head to Apple.com or use the Apple Store app when they have a chance over the weekend and get squared away.
