Apple halts Personal Pickup option for iPhone 5s buyers
Apple has pulled the Personal Pickup option from web and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294662==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/09/23/ties.in.with.new.personal.pickup.availability/" rel='nofollow'>app-based</a> orders for the iPhone 5s, shoppers point out. The option <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294663==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/23/device.may.be.readily.available.in.some.stores/" rel='nofollow'>appeared just yesterday</a>, making it unusual that Apple would rescind it so quickly. Personal Pickup lets people buy a device online, but then claim it at a local Apple Store.<br />
<br />
The change is unexplained, but likely related to low stocks of the 5s. If retail units are claimed by online shoppers, that can potentially leave few if any units left for walk-in customers. It remains difficult in some places to buy a 5s on-demand, particularly if it's not a 16GB space gray model.

Got mine just in time, then!

I had some AT&T trouble that left me iPhoneless until Monday night. I thought I was going to be waiting well into October, but once I got AT&T straightened out, I ordered my 5S and picked it up at the Apple store down the road about an hour later.
