It’s how the world works. It’s only a few hours. It’s about to be midnight in CA, go take some zzzquil and chill out.


My phone is coming tomorrow but I won’t be able to get it until Monday. Now that sucks :oops::mad:

I'll make you a deal, you get the phones first and pay what we pay, we get them last and get to pay US prices.
Interestingly, Japan’s iPhone prices are fairly close to US equivalent. One downside is that you can’t turn off the camera shutter sound.

If anything perhaps Taiwan should get them first, that’s where they are being shipped from, after all...
True! Ok Founded and operated in CA and built in Taiwan. Split launch and branch out... :D;)

Yeah I’ve been bouncing around recently and sadly the phone will be somewhere I’m not this weekend :( thankfully a family member will be able to sign for it.

Designed by Apple in California. Yet we are the one of the last ones to get it.

Start a petition to have phones launch first in CA next year.

;)
Oh man I been saying this for years! First ever Apple retail store location should get them first and branch out from there!
