    The moment that many have been eagerly awaiting (in some cases, since the moment Apple released it's iPhone 5) is finally upon us. Tomorrow morning, Apple's iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C officially hit the market.

    At this hour, Apple store employees at the company's retail locations across the U.S. are dressing the windows and aisles in preparation for Friday's launch.

    Both new iPhones will be available to customers tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. local time at Apple retail stores and at 12:01 a.m. PDT at the Apple Online Store. As of tomorrow, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be available in the U.S., Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.

    It will be interesting to follow the development (or lack-thereof) of crowd formations and lines outside of Apple's domestic retail stores. After all, with intense rumors of weak product supply in the face of strong demand, we may encounter more irate customers than usual tomorrow if they leave the Apple Store without a new iPhone.

    As MMi reported this morning, iPhone 5S deliveries won't take place until October for some buyers in Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Product supplies at home, unfortunately, may be far more limited.

    Been thinking a lot. I don't think it's going to be worth an upgrade from a 5 to a 5s. Think I'll hold off on the launch craze.

    I'm at home relaxing watching the tube. I plan on a good night's sleep. It's just a phone. They'll make more.

    I agree. Seriously people waiting outside for a phone??? I guess I WE have bigger and better priorities than waiting in line all night for an iPhone that doesn't even have a jb yet. Even if it did....NO THANKS! To many issues on release.

    Did you make sure they will carry the color you want? There have been rumors that ATT will not have Gold and limited White

    I will tell you in the morning.

    For the people saying its just a phone, no it's not just a phone, for some people saying I don't have a job that's why am here, yes I have a job and right now in getting paid just to be here chillin waiting for my phone, for the people saying we don't have more important things to do, hey what do you do regularly at nigt, sleep, so I'm doing something more productive in my case, I work nights 12 hrs so its not a big deal for me.

    It's 12:20 and so far I'm the only one here at Verizon... And for people saying I don't have a job. well I'm a senior I'm highschool, I don't need to have a job to support myself. So that argument is invalid

    Best Buy started letting you order 5S and choose store pick up about 1:30am EST. I hope it isn't a computer error. It charged my card and gave me confirmation but no email. Does show up under Orders on bestbuy.com though.

    Hoping this happens as I ordered mine, too, on Best Buy. That'd be sweet if I have a Gold 64GB waiting for me today!!!
