    Went in just to see how the launch was going and nobody was in line, just the 20 people who were picking up. It was sad and great to see. Sad being everybody might be holding out for the 10 and going to make our lifes hell, or the split launch is really going to help all iphone buyers out this year. How was your local store?

    I guess Summit Mall in Akron did have a line but I didn't see it. I preordered mine, got there early to pick up and the store was just its normal self. Busy but not crazy.

    Honestly lines have not been as long due to how easy it is to preorder and get the phones sent to home. Why would I want to go stand in line when I can sit in my couch, drink beer and wait for fed ex to get there.

    seriously i picked one up for my wife today...i just don't get it...its the same phone as last year + wireless charging and a couple of other things most people couldnt care less about. i get that this is basically the "S" model...but still...with the backdrop of the X which is a complete redesign, it just seems so dumb.

    It can’t be any crazier then past years launch. The 8’s launch just took away millions from the processs. Plus you guys live for these days! Lol

    Quite a few people have mentioned that they're just going to use the 8 series for a month and a half til the X comes out.

    Same processor as the X
    Same graphics chip as the X
    Same camera as the X

    If you're gonna like the X over the 7 chances are you'd like the 8 over the 7. I don't ge you statement that it's the same as last year. If that's true you're gonna be disappointed with your X. If it's not true many people will like the 8.

    I have an S8+ with the same fabulous OLED screen as the X will be and it's not making think it's the Jesus phone.

    Apple store in mall in NJ packed at 11am. You could see boxes of various products being given to customers.

    iPhone 8+ Feels so much nicer than 7+, but dang those glass backs. Couldn’t decide on the color so decided to sleep on it.

    Apple Store the Oaks was turning away people at 11:30AM. They had no stand-by units (all models) left after 10:30AM. Everything else was pre-order only.
