    I'll be there. Planning on getting there about 9:30 PM On Thursday.

    I might add that since the Spectrum store is one of the few around our area where security lets you line up all night, you will need to get there pretty early to have a shot at a Plus.

    What is the best time to get in line to get 6 plus. I am planning somewhere around 2 AM. Would that be ok?

    That's about when I got there for the 5S launch. I had 70 people ahead of me. I expect it to be way busier for this launch. I'm going to go by and see how it looks at 9:30PM and will probably line up then.

    One thing that happened last year was a big influx of people from the Fashion Island store because the security there are total jerks and won't allow anybody to line up before 6AM! Even though it's an outdoor mall. They won't even let you wait in the parking lot. A lot of those people came over to the Irvine store when they figured out they couldn't line up. I was one of them. A lot of other people around me did the same thing. Another good reason to get there earlier.

    Thanks for the info.. That helps me plan better.

    Just wondering if pre-order this time would make any difference?

    Newbie - quick question

    Hello,

    Does anyone think the pre-order line will be long at Apple Irvine Spectrum? I was hoping to pick up my pre-order before work tomorrow. I received my "ready for pickup" email this morning. :)

    Thanks,
    Paula

    I was thinking about showing up around 2 am but it sounds like that would be a bit late from what you guys are saying. Probably going to shoot for 11 PM or so tonight then. Gonna be a long night!

    Definitely no reserve line yet - what would be the point of reserving a unit if you were gonna camp out for it anyway? Lol

    The while point of the in store reservation is to avoid having to camp out. I imagine that line won't even start until 5am-ish.

    We'll about 5 people magically ended up in line head of me, so I'm like number 45, and can't see the rest of the line, but someone just said it goes around the corner, to the parking lot, turns again and goes for a while - so I'm guessing approx 120ppl now

    Any guesses from past experience how many approx handsets for iPhone 6 plus should be here? (Considering the rumors stock is very very low)

    Well, I took a time lapse video with the 5. About 3 hours ago. It was wrapped from the store, past capital seafood, and around towards Forever 21.
    I'm hoping to drop by pre-order line and just grabbing it real quick before going to work.

    iPhone 6 (Plus) - Irvine Spectrum Apple Store

    Wow. See ya'll at 5am. Do I have to wait in that line until they "separate" the pre-order and non preorder lines? Hopefully not.

    Or is there a pre-order line yet?

    well that was Australia. I would think the stores in the States would get a bit more. I'm hoping about 100 or so. We wont know for sure until it's past 8AM on the east coast.

    ----------

    No, they won't do that until probably after 6AM
