    I live in NYC and because the shipment date of my pre-ordered iPhone X is in December, I'm planning to stay in line at one of the Apple Stores in Manhattan overnight (of Nov 2nd). Does anybody know which store has the biggest number of devices and highest chance? Also if other people here have same plan, it might be possible to arrange (2-3 people) to stay in line in different shifts till 8 am :)). Please let me know.

    Hey man, I’m planning to line up tomorrow night. I was thinking to hit the Grand Central location.

    Grand central will probably be crazy. I think soho/WTC will be less packed.

    I have my iPhone coming in Friday 11/3. Girlfriends comes in 11/17-24 so waiting so I can get her a phone early.

    True true. The fact that it’s indoors helps. Did you see anyone camping yet?

    Grand central is probably the best one since its inside. If I remember correctly though, the one on 5th ave gets more units.

    Oh yeah I forgot that the WTC Store is indoors. So is that where you all are leaning? I’m down to go wherever, just trying to figure out what the best option is.

    I think that's their flagship store. It's even open 24/7

    I should also mention someone in another thread said that Soho, 5th Avenue, and Grand Central would be the locations with the most stock. I’m not sure if that’s factual or not obviously.

    It’s freezing outside so any indoors is best. So that’s GCT or WTC. I’ll be at WTC tomorrow night.

    They say wtc gets less foot traffic than soho, 5th and GCT.

    I hope it’s at least 50/each variation.

    I’ll find out tomorrow. I literally left just now before you guys presented this idea. I’ll stop by. It opens at 8am. I’ll stop by around 11 or 12.

    I’m down as well to go to WTC. I can be there before 10pm I think, if not 9pm.

    the weather looks like it's going to cooperate with NYC iPhone campers

    Btw the terminal in Grand Central is open from 530am-2am. In another thread I was told what’s happened years prior is people line up outside main entrance on 42nd, but aren’t let inside until 530am
