Bluewater Apple store to open early for iPhone 5 launch day

First published in by

BLUEWATER’S Apple Store will open its doors two hours early tomorrow (September 21) as the long-awaited iPhone 5 arrives.

Instead of opening at the usual time of 10am, the store will be welcoming customers from 8am.

Hundreds queued up in the Greenhithe shopping centre when the iPhone 4S went on sale in October last year and demand is expected to be as high tomorrow morning.

Apple says more than two million models were pre-ordered in the 24 hours after the iPhone 5 was launched on September 12, more than double the record set previously by the 4S.

The iPhone 5 boasts 200 new features including a new processor, an upgraded camera and a brand new maps application.
