Yay, got there at 6 am, was out by 9.15am, back in plenty of time for my appointment. The queues were nowhere near as long as I was expecting, although what they're like now, I don't know. It wouldn't surprise me if they still had some in stock though. Had a great time in the line, the people around me were lovely, and the crazy Apple man was cool, and it was my hand-knitted pink hat he was wearing! And the free coffee was very much needed and appreciated! The number of times they went round was amazing, reckon I could have had at least 5 cups if I'd wanted!

Great experience, hope everyone got what they wanted!

Just back from trip to Apple Store Exeter, Devon. They opened early at 8am, and had a small queue of scalpers. Anyway, they have plenty of stock of iPhone 5s which I was told would last all day. The store had no cases, but plenty micro USB adapters and lightning USB cables.

I would say there appeared no rush by normal customers. Also Exeter has all the phone shops and every one of them had stock too. Carphonewarehouse has 2 shops. Both had screen protectors and cases. Check both as they have slightly different range of cases. Also I found the other mobile phone shops has some other cases too plus screen protectors.

My wife and I looked at the white. I already have the black. We both felt the black was better colour, as the white is more silver than white.

Sat, 22nd sept.

Plenty of stock. Seriously not had the rush at the Apple store. It's available in plenty everywhere.

After all the not queuing I need to go back to Exeter to get a new iPhone. You can press the screen in slightly at the bottom left and it clearly shouldn't do it. Called apple and they told me that's the easiest way.

Yeah doesn't work like that. If you know your getting your money back can you not just buy another one?
