Apple products in Vancouver are as ubiquitous as Starbucks coffeeshops, so it's no surprise that people had a lot to say about the new iPhone 5 widely rumored to be unveiled today at 10am in San Francisco, California. Tech Radar predicts that pre-orders for the new iPhone will begin on September 14. The phones are expected to go on sale on September 21 or 24.
