Is it faster to pre-order through AT&T or Apple?
would guess it will probably be the same, apple is notorious for limited quantities on release, ithis time they have two phones to keep up with.

According to everything I have read, pre-ordering the 5S is impossible. You can only pre-order the cheap plastic 5C.
Other than it having a plastic back (something the 3G and 3Gs had and no one complained then) it's the same phone as the 5.

I would ask if you are an AT&T "Premier Customer"? If you are, it may be faster to upgrade through Apple. For the last few years the Premier members have been having issues with their upgrade orders.
I am a Premier member at AT&T (corporate discount) and when I got my iPhone 3G I got it at an AT&T corporate store. I got my iPhone 4 through an Apple store, and I got my iPhone 5 at an AT&T store. I got my iPhone 3G several months after the release due to contracts on my previous phone. I got my iPhone 4 through an in-store waiting list because I couldn't pre-order. At that time the Apple store waiting list time was much shorter than the AT&T one. I got my iPhone 5 in an AT&T store because Apple was sold out and the AT&T store had what I wanted. I got it on launch day, but because I was traveling, I couldn't pre-order, and I took my chances in the lines, walking out with my new iPhone 5 on 09/21/2012.

My personal experience and based on all the posts here about where is my order and why does it show backordered, etc.. Order from Apple!
