    Anyone planning to go to Rockaway mall Apple Store to try to get an iPhone X on Friday?

    How crowded is this Apple Store comparing to neighboring stores like Short Hills and Willowbrook? How early will the mall let people in? Appreciate any one who has queued there on launch day before to share some info! :)

    Im going! After reading several other threads about previous iPhone launches there, get there EARLY. People are saying that by 2-3am, theres already extremely large lines (300 people!!!!). I was planninng on going at midnight, but I might as well just go earlier. Gonna be a LOOOOONG night

    I have also read the mall will not let people in till maybe 6 am. So I might just get there early and see how long the line is, but not like 2-3 am. Hopefully I can see you there!

    Honestly, I dont. But then again, Ive never been to the iPhone launches right at opening. I do expect a line, but I doubt there will be 300 people

    Im going to go at the same time the store closes (I think 10am?). I have to ensure Im one of the first few people in line, not because I want to make sure I get the phone, but because I have a test at 9:30, so if I dont get out of there within 45 minutes, Im screwed

    But you have a test in the morning, shouldn't you be in bed and get a good night sleep?;)

    I also need to be at work at 9am, but I guess I am more flexible than you.

    Should I? Yes. Will I? No. Why? Because Im gonna fail this test no matter what, so the question becomes whether to fail it with an iPhone X, or fail it without an iPhone X.
