    do people line up on these(like last year?)
    I mean I cannot imagine the lines because it will block other store right next to it.. how will it work???

    Typically the Apple Store will close down an hour or two before 5:00 to clear the store and set up

    Yes, lines will form within the mall, but will be roped off or organized by the local mall security

    why not call and ask your local store and find out how they'll be handling it?

    i have 3 Apple Stores in my area and 2 are within indoor malls... and they always set up lines outside the store so they block their neighbors as little as possible.

    Its a simple process. They unnecessarily stand you outside so you can be human billboards to the mall walkers who go "whats the line for"? And when those people go in line to get the new product they get to be the human billboards for the next batch of mall walkers.

    They line you up outside the store

    Apple is very experienced with handling long lines. The Apple Store manager will work with the mall to get those posts-with-ropes-between-them set up to direct the lines to allow access to the other stores.
