    Anyone waiting in line overnight at Jordan Creek either hoping to get launch day stock or pick up a pre order? Anyone trying Best Buy or carrier stores in the Des Moines area?

    I live in Clive. How do line up work at the Apple store considering it’s in a mall. Never tried it before.

    I ordered my iPhone X and selected pickup at Jordan Creek during the 8 - 8:30am time slot. I'm wondering how early to get there and how early they will let people into the mall.

    I have a pre order for the X as well. I lined up for the 6s launch a few years ago. The line starts at the entrance by Talbots. The doors to the mall opened at 7AM and you were led into a queue in front of the Apple Store - one for walk ins and one for reservations. The employees brought out snacks and drinks and eventually went through the walk in line and started asking people’s preference so they don’t waste their time. At 8AM they come out and applaud everyone.. lol.

    It’s a fun experience. I’ll probably be there at 7AM to just enjoy the launch day atmosphere a little and socialize.

    Thanks for sharing, I waited in line almost all night for the iPhone 4 when I could afford the time. This year, I took a day off work :) I'll probably arrive between 6 and 7am to enjoy the atmosphere and sip my coffee. I'm getting excited!!!

    It’s less stressful being in the pre order line! I was in the walk in line last time behind a bunch of scalpers and that was quite frustrating to say the least.

    630 might be a good time to show up.. a little bit of time outside getting hyped but for the most part in the warmth.. lol. I can’t wait!

    Yeah, but I expect that this line will swell closer to 7AM. It always seems like each of these people are holding spots for two other people.

    I over slept. Well I sleep terrible to start with.

    I wonder what my chances are to come out now?

    Give it a try! It’s not a horrible line and stock has generally been better than expected. That or hit up a Best Buy! Good luck!

    I was okay because I had a reservation. I was in and out very fast. The guy did make it sound like they would probably run out of units for the people in the walk in line.

    It was good chatting with you this morning.. exactly why I do pickup on launch day rather than delivery.

    This thing is sick. I think the silver stainless steel band is my favorite part. I picked up a saddle brown leather case and it looks great.
