None of the other 10 countries where the iPhone 5S will be released on September 20 receive this favor, so the rest of the world will have to go directly to the Apple Store to buy the device on September 20.

According to 9to5Mac, on September 17, both Apple’s China website and Hong Kong website will offer reservations for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C for pickup at an Apple Store three days later.

Apple made the announcement on its website on the day the new iPhones were released.

Cupertino used a similar strategy last year in China for the third-generation iPad.
