    Might be heading down to get one. Depends if they do pre-orders or not really.

    Ordered one online this morning but not shipping until Sept 29-Oct 2.

    Was thinking about doing my first ever launch day camp out but decided to have a gander at the store pickup option; was surprised to see all coming up as available so I've picked the 10-11am slot.

    Fingers tightly crossed nothing goes wrong between now and then.

    Was up at 8am this morning to reserve an iPhone Plus 64gb. Kept having errors and stuff and couldn't find the option to reserve it. By the time I found the proper page, Victoria Square were sold out of all colours and all memory sizes of iPhone Plus'. So I'm gonna have to queue on Friday!

    Will the apple store have stock for those who just queue on the day, or just stock for those who managed to find the link to reserve in store?

    I'm sure they will but you'll probably have to queue for them, so get there early.

    Managed to get a space grey preordered but would prefer a silver. I'll queue early and see if I can pick up my preference. Cheers for the reply

    I failed to reserve one. Anyone know when to start queuing in the morning to have a good chance of buying the phone?

    Victoria Square iPhone 6 launch

    I'd assume from the lack of chat on here that there won't be as much interest as other apple stores elsewhere.

    I saw a video of the iPhone 5 launch on youtube and it had a big enough crowd.

    Was anyone at that and know whats a reasonable time to turn up?

    The earlier the better. The fact that you can reserve by timeslot probably means less queuing.

    There could be hundreds of people queueing who don't post on MacRumors.

    Of course!

    I'm not stupid thanks. I know there will be a lot of interest.

    There is a much more active board here

    I am just aware with reservations going through another line the actual "queue" may not be mental.

    Anyway I live in Victoria Square apartments so it's not hassle to walk 60 seconds to the store :)
