I've read that Apple has been suspected of creating artificial demand before, but I'm starting to think it's true. I live by 4 Apple stores, and I've visited them constantly these past two days. there have been no lines, even going early in the morning at the 24 hour NYC flagship store before their usual shipments come in, yet they never have the 64gb versions. each store has just told me I "missed the early shipments and sales", yet I've actually had a few staff admit they never even got stock, and that only the 16gb has been coming in. It's a silly business decision if this is indeed what's going on, since if this keeps up these next few days, then I'll just grab the Sony Z5 Compact. There are prob others out there like me who aren't tied to just one brand and OS, so Apple is just gonna lose business from us if they keep pulling this silliness.
