Even as customers will have to wait up to four weeks for iPhone 5 units purchased only, Apple recently a new option where they can reserve a new unit to be picked up the next day in the store.

The reservations for the iPhone 5 unit will be accepted from 10PM to 4AM local time and can be picked up at the nearest apple store the following day. The note of the website of the company indicated that people should purchase “an iPhone from the people who know it best.”

Prior to the latest announcement, Apple was preparing for its reservation system for the iPhone 5.

Apple had indicated that the stocks of the iPhone 5 in the Apple stores are limited and are available to customers until supplies last. Fans of the smartphone offering of Apple lined up at stores all around the world last Friday, wanting to be among the first people to purchase the latest model of the device.

Pre-orders were accepted at 3AM Eastern last September 14. However, the units were easily sold out. The waiting time for the delivery of the iPhone 5 was initially at around one to two weeks before it was moved back further recently. Some consumers, who were able to order the iPhone 5 is the morning of September 14, received their units recently.

Last October an online reservation system was also opened by Apple for its iPhone 4S. A lottery system was also introduced by the company for its clients in Hong Kong, in an effort to stop scalpers. The iPhone 5, the latest version of the much-loved smartphone offering of the company, had been the subject of numerous reports prior to its recent launch by Apple.
