The apple recently announced there will be no need to camp outside its stores to buy the latest iPhone 12. It will be delivered to you.
The sales for new apple iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are about to begin in a few hours. If customers do visit apple stores, the employees will help them with a reservation form that will allow them to visit later at the assigned time slot.
