    Sadly, nothing.

    Odd. Manchester has all configs, as well as most London stores.

    Rarely pans out like that in the 6am reservations, existing iUP members see a different set of stock for some reason.

    Last few days it’s mostly been London, Manchester, Birmingham (a lot), Glasgow and Edinburgh. Just gotta be quick

    It’s a shame really because there are clearly people waiting to drop £1000-£1150!

    People can reserve via the iUP for alternative payment on collection. You just have to know someone on up. It doesn’t tie the reservation to that person reserving, only the person collecting.

    If I can’t get anything tomorrow I’m going to cancel my orders and wait til next year. I am struggling to justify the price in my mind and the wait is only confirming that the price is crazy whilst I have a working 6s plus

    O
    Ok thanks for checking. Doesn't surprise me! Seems anything south of London is getting next to no stock. Doesn't seem right really!

    I think the majority have been dispatched or gone into PFD. Is yours still stuck on Order In Progress?

    If I reserve to collect in Apple store (not IUP) do I need to collect or on the same day? Or could I reserve to collect Sunday for instance?

    Any chance you can check Birmingham for SG 256GB?

    How are you checking? Everywhere I check on the apple site says 'no stock in the closest 11 stores to you' no matter which part of the country I check.

    Whatever wizardry you're using, can you check Norwich please?

    Norwich has been drier than the Sahara for any models sadly and tonight is no exception.

    Can someone explain to me why it is that some people can see stock whilst others can't?

    People already on the Upgrade Programme from last year can log in and see a separate stock checker. The allocations between new and upgrading customers are separate but nonetheless it’s a good indicator of what’s coming at 6AM.

    So they have preferential access to stock whereas outright buyers have to run the 6:00am gauntlet?

    Yep. And it’s the right thing to do since it’s the only way for iUPers to upgrade whereas outright buyers can reserve, walk-in, buy from John Lewis, etc....

    (Remember the 6AM reservations aren’t actually intended for outright buyers at all.)

    Got iPhone X one gray and one silver on 03-Nov, absolutely loving the devices. Big step up from 6 plus. Though 6 plus is till spotless and scratchless and was working perfectly until iOS 10, iOS 11 broke it big time.

    One week with iPhone X and it’s been amazing. Face ID is smoother than Touch ID. Edge to edge screen is beautiful. Sleeker than 6 plus so easy to hold in hand. The notch takes sometime to get used to. Brilliant camera. Force touch looks good but have not found myself using it much. Colours are more vibrant on OLED screen. Calls are clearer and louder.

    Overall, the best 5.8 inch ever held in hand :D;)
