    Does anyone think there will be non pre order pickups this year? I am on the iPhone upgrade program and all they had around me was Rose Gold 256gb 7+'s :( My last two iPhones were white faced so I wanted to go black or Jet Black this time around.

    your best bet is to check online on the day it's released after 11pm to see if you can reserve one in-store. I remember one Apple employee mentioned they receive shipments and update inventory after 11pm of the day they receive them.

    Just be prepared to get in line way in advance.

    I'll be staying the night like I do every year. Power strips, comfy sleeping bag with cushy pad, iPhone, iPad, wifi right there and good company.

    Ah, yeah. The SF Bay area stores are always jammed up quick. I was in the Los Gatos line last year for the 6+ release. Showed up at 11am the day before and was like 20th in line. :eek:

    Wow! I live near Sacramento and sadly all of the stores out here are in malls and the security are real sticklers about you can't line up till 6:00 am so of course everyone rushes at the same time and you always have someone doing it an hour earlier and getting away with it:/ so no matter how early you are you don't know what spot you are going to get.

    Even if you reserve one, you still have to wait in a line. When I reserved my 6 in-store at Stanford, I was way out the door in the sun. Took nearly an hour till I got mine.

    Also not sure if it matters but it was done on the iPhone Apple Store App.
