  • Lines Begin Around the World for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Launch


    The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus device has already launched in New Zealand (at an authorized reseller), while customers are beginning to line up outside of Apple Retail Stores in other parts of the world. The new iPhones officially launch at 8am local time and the lines vary in size depending on location. New Zealand was the first country to launch the phone as it is already past 9am there, with Australia second, Japan third, and Hong Kong and China fourth. There are twelve countries that will be launching the new smartphone on Friday, September 25th.

    Customers are already lining up in German cities Hamburg and Munich, even though it is 8+ hours away from launch time. And in the U.S., we are more than 12 hours away from launch but there are already line queues in San Francisco and Chicago. Apple’s new smartphones have already completely sold out online, with devices unavailable to even order anymore in some countries. If you haven’t ordered the phone yet, do you have any plans of lining up at the Apple Store? What time will you be going?

    Countries that will be receiving the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus include Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the UK and the US, as these are the first wave of countries.

      I'll be at my Apple Store in King of Prussia, PA in the morning. Special hours open at 8am. Not sure where we'll line up since store is deep in the mall.

      I am too for my 6S. But I want a 6S+ too. For that, on AT&T, you need to wait in line tomorrow if you want it at launch. Most people are still back ordered for AT&T 6S+ to Oct 16.

      Seeing that my phone was lost/stolen yesterday, I'm debating between lining up at a Best Buy or ATT. Neither will say what they have in stock, both say if I'm early enough I *should* be good. So secretive. I'd hate to wait in line for a few hours only to find a rose 16g 6s

      I should also say this is the first time I'm ever going out early. Hopefully it's fun.

      Oh man I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully you'll be able to get the phone you want tomorrow. Best of luck

      Thanks. Making the best of it. Silver lining is I get a new phone. I planned on skipping this one. Oh well.

      After a couple of times waiting in line for the iPhone launches, this will be my first time pre-ordering and having it delivered tomorrow.

      I think it's one of the smartest things I've done!

      I can sleep comfortably and know that I'll be receiving it right on my doorstep tomorrow instead of having to waiting in line now, or early tomorrow with dozens of other people that are probably waiting right now.

      I left instructions for it to be left on my porch which is surrounded by bushes. Also my step sister may be home until I get off

      Signing not needed.. Confirmed by several sources already. You need to follow MacRumors.com forums around new phone launch times. They have the best info on all this.
