Apple has finally released their highly-anticipated app "Apple Store". What this app does is that it acts as the online Apple Store as well as a mobile concierge.
With the Apple Store app being released on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad for the price of free, it is bound to be a hit. The app itself has a great layout and has the majority of the functions that the normal store would.
Just some of the thing you can do are; pre-order your iPhone 4, locate the nearest physical Apple Store, purchase Apple Store product(of course), and much more. Apple Store(mobile) will also allow you to set up Genius Bar , One to One, or Personal Shopping appointments.
Go ahead and check this app out while you are refreshing your iPhone 4 pre-order page for the millionth time.
As any large company you have to take an overwhelming launch of your product as a good sign... but the line is very fine between a successful (albeit, busy) launch and a launch that annoys and alienates users due to underwhelming support.
Apple seems to be treading that fine line right now. Many users are unable to order online due to the site being slow or down entirely.
We've posted an article about being able to order one at a local Apple store and reserving your iPhone 4 that way, but what if you don't live near an Apple store, are you out of luck?
That seems to be the question that many would-be iPhone customers are asking themselves.
If you've been unable to process your order online due to the overwhelming popularity of the iPhone 4, fear not.... you can still go into an Apple Store and reserve your iPhone 4. You may need to press the sales rep to get them to do this but it is possible.
BGR reports that the demand for the new Apple iPhone 4 is so great, that AT&T's internal network is having issues as well. Do you think the launch of the iPhone 4 will break all existing sales records?
Apple iPhone 4 pre-orders have started with a bang this morning. Apple's online store has been up and down all morning. As we previously noted, only the black iPhone 4 16gb and iPhone 4 32gb models are currently available. Let us know if you were successfully able to place your order.
Voda Phone is gearing up for the launch of Apple's new iPhone like most of the selected carriers waiting for the big rush of customers on launch day. Engadget was able to catch a quick glimpse of pricing from their website before it was taken down just minutes later. We aren't sure if this will be the exact pricing as pictured above, but appears to be in line with what others have suggested.
When I first ran across an article from ModMyi that showed a leak AT&T document indicating we might only be able to pre-order the iPhone 4 in black, I chuckled because a Michael Jackson song popped in my head right away (Black or White). Like the song goes, it doesn't matter if it's black or white really applies to the new iPhone 4. Unless I'm the oddball out, who is really purchasing the phone because of the color?
Would you believe me if I told you could trade your old iPhone 3GS phone for a brand new iPhone 4 straight across? Probably not, some things are just to good to be true. Hold up though, this might be the real deal!
According to a recent article posted at MacRumors.com, at a Brooklyn-area RadioShack, a sales representative named Shaquana told eWEEK that only some electronics trade-ins will be allowed in-store, and others will have to be arranged online. Devices that one can safely trade-in at the store, she said, include phones and game consoles, chargers, old cameras and camcorders.
Radio Shack's Twitter account has been filling in some blanks on the policy. Edible Apple has been tracking the tweets which revealed that the iPhone 3GS can be traded in for a $200 credit to the new iPhone:
The trade in value on an iPhone 3GS is $200, so if you're currently toting around last year's iPhone model and are eligible for an AT&T upgrade any time in 2010, you can pick up the new iPhone 4 for free. While trade-ins can ordinarily be done online, Radio Shack is advising users via its Twitter account that if the iPhone 4 is on your radar, your best bet is to show up in-store.
Apple's online store has just closed up shop temporarily and gone into maintenance mode. We hope this is a good sign iPhone 4 pre-prders are about to begin. So grab another cup of coffee and stay tuned! While your waiting, be sure to let all your online buddies know about iPhone4Forum.net!
