    Set alarm for 2 minutes before and sleep.

    BTW- Remove the word "people" in your title. More respectful.

    Insomnia. I'm usually still awake by 12AM Pacific (CA resident). The annoying thing is that didn't help at all when I tried pre-ordering the iPhone 6 Plus. Apple's servers were just completely hammered.

    Thankfully, that's not likely to be a problem this year.

    Staying up to 3am or later on a Friday night is nothing unusual for me. If I don't have work or some other engagement the next day, I keep pretty unusual hours. It's not unusual for me to be going to bed when the sun is coming up. I don't know why I'm like that. I think I'm part vampire.

    As interest in iPhone 7 continues to fade, buying one will be fast and easy.

    That's easy. I go to bed, get a good night sleep. Wake up and order. I have a phone, so I don't need to be an iPhone fanatic.

    Go to bed, set my alarm for 2:50, wake up and order via the app. Back in bed 20 minutes later.

    I am a natural night owl. I'm not preordering this time but I'll probably keep you guys company if I don't have to be up early for something. Preorder time is always a fun time on the forum.

    I usually fall asleep early in the evening, wake up when the alarm goes off at 2:45, order, and join whatever pajama party is going on.

    Use the iOS app. Confirm your CC is up to date. Favorite the iPhone model you want. Wake up at 11:58pm. Go to cart. Place thumb on Touch ID. Go back to sleep.

    I either preorder when I wake up in the morning or I reserve one in store sometime after it's released and pick it up then.

    12am isn't that hard to stay up to. Luckily I don't have to be up at 3am. That would be brutal (I work Saturdays.. and it's BUSY!).
