    Called Apple Monday to discuss the option of picking up in store on launch day as a walk-in customer who hasn't reserved. Was told that they will be available.

    Booked day off work.

    Used Apple online chat a few minutes ago to check if they were getting any Jet Black stock.... 'iPhones won't be available in-store for people who haven't reserved'. Oh... unless you want to finance it or have a payment plan setup in which case theres a separate process for that.

    Nice job Apple.

    I have also called and done the online chat version and got two different answers regarding UK walk-in availability. Has anybody here gone into a store to ask about walk-in availability in the UK yet?

    I really don't think they will have any for walk in,
    I am in the same situation and wanted to just turn up on Friday morning and buy one,
    I have spoken to apple on the phone and used chat twice and got the same answer,
    There will be no stock available on Friday for walk ins,
    I don't know how true this is but it's direct from apple chat.

    It looks like it's turning out to be true :( I saw the threads you guys created as well.

    I didn't know they stopped people lining up outside stores, the last time I did that was for the iPhone 5.

    I guess our only hope will be for when the reservation system goes live again on Saturday.

    Can try I guess. I didn't have as much luck with the 6+ 2 years ago, it was at least 2 weeks after launch that I was finally able to get through the online in-store reservation process without someone beating me to it. And even then it was at a store that was a 2 hour drive away from me.
