    hi everyone


    i just asked apple on their chat off their website and i figured i would ask here. in the past i have waited in line with many others and recieved a phone. This year they are doing pre order in store pickup...have they done this in the past and does this mean if i didnt pre order one i cant wait inline.

    My local VZW stores open at 8:00am on Friday. I know there will be a line...but I have to work. I haven't preordered on purpose yet just to see if I can pick up a stray iPhone 6+ after the craziness is over, maybe around 10:00am or so.

    If I can't get one then...I'm pretty sure I'll order in store.

    There will be two separate lines at each Apple Store. One for preorders and one for those who didn't.

    That's me as well. Thankfully, i don't have to work until later in the day, so i'm heading to the store to see what happens.

    I have never done this before, but for some reason I am thinking about doing this. I typically get up at 5 anyway, So I am going to grab a quick bite to eat and head over to my local Verizon store Friday morning.

    That wife thinks I am crazy, but she said go for it.

    If you're in a rather large city then be prepared to see quite the line. If it's a little smaller of a city/area then you might not see something too outrageous at 5-6ish. I feel like 6am for smaller cities is when the line will really start to pick up.

    In-store supplies after launch day?

    Hello!

    I pre-ordered a 6Plus from Apple, but it is backordered until mid-October. I can't go to the Friday AM launch because of work - and wonder if stores will be getting stock delivered for Saturday morning? What happened last year with the 5s?

    I know they have the new reservation system for lining up on launch day - but what happens after that?

    It has a population of 30k not sure if that is small or not (I know it's not large).

    Yeah that's quite small. I can't imagine your line will be that extensive. Depends on when you plan to show up to get in line, but I doubt you'd need to get there the night before or anything like that if you want to be close to the front of the line.
