Apple expects to launch its Personal Pickup service for iPhone 5 at 10 p.m. tonight, according to reports. Customers can purchase an iPhone 5 online, then pick up the phone the next day when an Apple retail store receives inventory. Apple stores are reportedly receiving iPhone 5s today that will be available for Personal Pickup tomorrow.

Apple’s website makes no mention of the iPhone 5 Personal Pickup option yet. As for how long the store will hold your purchased phone for pickup, reports differ: 9to5Mac reports that customers will have “upwards of two weeks” to pick up the purchased phone after its arrival, while Apple Insider claims customers only have one day to pick up a reserved phone before their money is refunded and the phone is released back into inventory.
