REALLY ? People line up like the iPhone 6 release years ago ??

I don't have that much time on my hands anyway so I always pre-order.
My 11 will be in my hands tomorrow which is fast enough for me!

Singapore’s first Apple store opened only 2 years ago so they can still get excited. Folks in other places around the world have already experienced the lines for years now and are over it, lol.

Some may think it’s ridiculous, but there truly is joy in camping out. I camped out for every model from the 4 up until the 6S, I was even first in line a few times. It’s sinply a great experience. Nowadays i preorder for in-store pick up, but I do miss the fun and excitement of camping. It might not be “necessary” but let them have their joy.

You guys are so naive. :p A large contingent of this is almost definitely resellers from nearby southeast asian countries where the iPhone isn't launching until later in the year. These people are able to enjoy a pretty fat markup by selling the phones in their home country.

Amazing,that so many people can afford an already marked up phone, that's going to be marked up more, instead of waiting a couple of months.. Who am I to question the sanity of a consumer, lord knows I've had my moments, but seriously it's 2019 the mystique of iPhones should have cooled down some by now... :rolleyes: talk about naïve.. LOL!!
