    Just out of curiosity I checked the local Apple Store and they have the 256 space grey X in stock for pickup.

    Will not hurt to try it out!

    If I can type on the keyboard, it might be a keeper.

    I’m very surprised by this. Nearly all the stores around me have all configurations of the Verizon version.

    I second this.

    You have to be quick to grab one before the stock is gone.

    I camp from a 7+ and I will tell you I have no issue with typing and don’t even really see a difference. I think it helps with the globe and microphone being below the actual keyboard. You won’t be disappointed.

    Good stock of 256 models in DC too.

    Super annoys me how TC played off like they would be launch day units “but get their early” because they may not last. Also rubs me the wrong way that reservations were not taken for line waiters until they got near the top. If they kept going down the line it would have vastly improved the customer experience. Instead hours wait after the open...apparently for no reason either. Yeah, kinda bitter. I’ll never get those hours back. Lesson learned.

    But Cook can't project (Or speak) for every single store and what They will have for available units and overall foot traffic during the store hours. I don't blame him for saying what he said, but every store Would vary anyways depending on location and size.

    Yup I got up at 6am to check in-store stock, and all of the stores around me have 256GB silvers. So I canceled my wife's 11/2-11/10 ATT order and am picking one up at the store today (got mine yesterday).

    Shortage seems to be made up. It's been easier to snag an X than a lot of previous iPhones. Any in store stock would be gone in minutes in some years.

    I cancelled my pre-order and bought one for pickup at my local Apple store this morning. I'm surprised it's not as sold out as they predicted it will be.

    All Dallas/Ft. Worth Apple stores have them All in stock. This is apples move to keep those scalpers from scalping such rediculous prices for them imo.

    I’m picking mine up at 10am. Ordered around 6am from the Apple Store app. Apple refreshes stock at 5am local time, give or take.

    True, but in that regard:
    1) Apple could be more upfront about which store will have better stock than others -- not specifics, though Apple knows what it ships to each store 24hrs before launch. Just something simple like well stocked or limited stock. Call one type of store "City Flagship," and the other "Town Center." I've seen this done with other "big" launches like game machines and Best Buy will advertise which stores will have better stock and which stores will have none.

    OR 2) even better just turn on reservations 24 hrs before launch and let people order their p/u phone that way. But even if those two options are not practical for whatever reason then

    3) certainly Apple could arm a dozen employees with iPads to go down the line 30 min before open and assign reservations then rather than only when they get to the top of the line hours later. At the store I was at they did eventually start going down the line but that was many hours after open, no help to those of us that arrived at 6am.

    Also, I get that some people want the full show -- set up, instructions on how to use, etc. But others just want to buy the box and leave. Literally a 2 min. transaction. No reason Apple could not have an express line for these people after they reserve their device just for express service. Why make these people who just want to see the trailer wait because people in front want to see the whole movie and read the credits afterwards?

    I mean IF it's all about the customer experience as Angela Ahrendts claims and not about Apple having a spectacle at every store Apple would standardize launch routines at stores to ensure that customers are not unnecessarily burdened because they want an Apple product on launch day. Apple could have done a lot better here. I've been in past Apple line ups and they went super fast. This one felt like how I imagine standing at the cash registers at Wal-Mart on Black Friday would be.

    So I checked around 7:40 am and just saw that the one I really wanted had one in stock. Immediately cancelled the online order, waited few minutes then ordered the verizon model 256 GB space gray. They only had 1.

    I too came here to report my surprise that these things are in stock for pickup. I didn't even wake up early. Almost 9am here. The store closest to me doesn't have the Silver 256 ATT, but they have black. I didn't check other carriers, but seems there is quite a bit of stock at most stores around Metro Detroit.

    If you pre-ordered one can I go in store and get it? Show them my pre-order confirmation?

    No. You need to cancel your preorder and order for pickup
