Did your alarm clock fail you? Do you love the camaraderie of standing in line to get your next iPhone? Tomorrow, Sept. 25, is the day the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus officially (and finally) go on sale around the world.
For those folks who didn’t already preorder a device, we offer this timely guide.
Getting your phone
Apple retail stores and third-party vendors will begin selling the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, beginning tomorrow, Sept. 25 at 8 a.m. local time.
Your bet best to score an iPhone on Friday is to stand in line outside of an Apple retail store. Those stores will have the best inventory at launch. Also, try to order an iPhone for pickup using the Apple Store app.
Please note that the new iPhones are available by reservation only in China, Hong Kong, and Japan. A preorder reservation is also required in the following four tax-free U.S. states: Alaska, Delaware, New Hampshire, and Oregon.
Not near an Apple retail store? Get to your local carrier or retail store very early.
We’ll be covering tomorrow’s launch, and can’t wait to do so. For this, we’d love your help. Please forward your line photos to us on Twitter @appadvice. Your photo may be published here at AppAdvice!
