The Insider also describes details on how the launch will occur at Apple Stores.

Come Friday morning, all Apple retail stores will open around 10:00 a.m. local time for a 4-hour stint. They’ll then shutter for the same amount of time while prepping for the iPhone premiere, reopening at 6:00 p.m. local time with the gadgets for sale.

“We’ll open the doors again at 6:00 p.m., when you can be one of the first to see, try, and buy the iPhone,” Apple said in a message posted on its retail website. “Be sure to arrive early — iPhone is available on a first-come, first-served basis.”
