Target has just painted a bull's-eye on the back of the iPhone 5, and that's good for customers looking to reserve Apple's latest flagship ahead of its September 21 shipping date.

Customers can head to select Target stores -- the nearly 1,500 outlets with Target Mobile centers, to be specific -- to preorder the device. While Target hasn't shared how many units it has to sell, expect their stock and carrier choice to be limited.

Apple is selling the iPhone 5 in 16GB ($199.99), 32GB ($299.99), and 64GB ($399.99) capacities, and in with both black and white cases. Target will carry the 16GB in black and white. The 32GB will be available for order from Target through D2U (Direct to You), and the white 32GB is part of the pre-order program currently available for AT&T and Sprint.
