    So far no details about the launch have been released, give it a few more days for Apple to send out a Press Release with all details for what to expect from the Friday release.

    As of yet there is no stated limit. Actually everything about the launch other than the start time is unstated so far. No official info at all.

    But store managers can and limit purchases on all products even if there is no "official" hard limit. They will do this if the line is particularly long to ensure as many people as possible are served and also to stop gray market resellers from buying stock they intend to resell overseas.

    From what I remember from other launches, someone from the Apple store staff will walk down through the line and inquire as to which model/capacity/color you want and how many and state that there is a limit per purchaser, if there is, as well as state if there are any other restrictions such as no cash, credit/debit cards only, etc. In the past they've had restrictions on the number of items per purchaser plus require that purchases be made with a credit/debit card with the purchaser's name on it. This prevents a lot of would-be eBayers from coming into the store with a lot of cash and buying up several or many devices and then reselling them on eBay or Craigslist.

    You're probably out of luck if you have a huge family with every member wanting one.
