Online iPhone orders
Apple has begun shipping iPhone orders placed on its online store. The company previously required customers to finalize the sale at a brick-and-mortar Apple Store. The eligibility checks, plan selection and add-on options can now be configured online for new customers, although existing AT&T customers still need to stop in at a retail store location.
The shipping option is now available and can be selected for free.
