    Little short video from an hour ago, I was the first in the door at the San Francisco store. It's a surreal experience that many people clapping as you walk in.

    Wow! They were probably filming for the next keynote intro, where Tim Cook mentions how well the 6s Launch was. Given your pink hair, you should be easy to spot.

    Okay, I am so tired of the 4 million shipping updates, etc.

    BUT - this was cool. With those stairs it reminded me of Titantic movie.

    Nice. Did you get a free iPhone 6S+ for being first? Any dance routine for the audience and cameras?

    That was me last year at an Atlanta store. I felt like such a dork. ;) Congrats though. That was awesome.

    I was second in the door this morning at my store and it was such a cool experience with the cheering and high fives! Did the Apple Upgrade Program and was in and out in 20 minutes, despite getting two Geniuses helping me who were admittedly rusty on the retail side of things. All hands on deck! But they got it done painlessly and I LOVE my 6s Plus Rose Gold!!

    I found the Pink case to be too peach - I wanted cotton candy pink - so I'm rocking the Turquoise, and I LOVE it with the rose gold!

    Now that is really cool! I've got every iPhone every year on day one. It's hard to explain to some people,but things like this make it all worth it waiting outside.

    Can I ask,how long did you stay outside? Maybe next year I'll meet you out there :)
    I live in the bay
