This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

The Apple Store is down for the second time this week, as the company prepares to make iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max available to preorder at at 5 a.m. PT (8 a.m. ET/1 p.m. BST) on Friday. If you’re ready to drop  $699, $999 or $1,099 on the just-announced 2019 iPhones, it’s the day you’ve been waiting for.

The iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max start at $699, $999 and $1,099, respectively. These new iPhones pick up a fresh palette of colors, longer battery life and a A13 Bionic processor inside that promises faster performance. But more than any other feature, it’s the camera hardware and software that take the headlining role.

“The weekend’s almost here. And so is preorder,” the message on the store reads.

The new iPhones are available in some fresh colors, but the more practical improvements promised include longer battery life, faster performance thanks to the A13 Bionic processor and better cameras.

It’ll come back when the preorders go live, and we’ll update this story as soon as that happens.
