Experts are expecting huge queues for the gadget at Apple stores around the world as fans compete to become among the first to own the new gadget.
'I think we'll see unprecedented demand,' said Stuart Miles of web site Pocket Lint.
'People have holding off upgrading, and now they'll buy.
'I think we'll see huge demand as soon as preorders go live - and the key will be how much stock apple has, as they will want to make sure they have enough when the stores open next friday.

Hundreds of fans queue at the Covent Garden Apple store, but experts say many more could turn out for the iPhone 5.

Preorders will be huge, but we'll also see huge queues at stores'.
Apple has traditionally sold the iPhone it all of its retail store, and fans often queue for days outside to be among the first to own them.
Will Findlater, the editor of Stuff magazine, said the new handset is likely to become Apple's bestselling product.

Fans even camped for days on regent Street and around the world when Apple put the iPad 3 on sale.
