I've needed to get my wife an iPhone 6 as she's using an old iPhone that no longer works well. Go online today in the morning and reserve an iPhone 6 for pickup between 2 and 3pm at the Apple Store. Here in Canada we can reserve online and then pay in store. Very easy assuming you can find stock. Get to the mall at 2:15pm and happen to be the only one in the reservation line outside the store. Within minutes there's a few others behind me. Literally at 2:20pm an older couple walks by and in a disgusted voice the lady says to her husband loud enough that we can hear, "these people are obsessed waiting like this". So I challeneged her to physical combat. Lol just kidding. But I went in the store 5 minutes later and was back in my car at 2:30pm. Very easy experience to be honest. I still remember the iPhone 4 launch. It was a disaster at the store I was at. Still wake up with cold sweats thinking about it.
