    For all the people out there who are Apple product fanatics (pretty much everyone on iMore), on launch day, do you prefer to wait in line or pre-order the next iPhone? Is it something you'd stay up all night in line with a bunch of strangers to get, or would you you rather stay at home in your PJs and buy it online and avoid the lines?

    Wait in line? Heck no!......I have no problem waiting a week or two and then walking in a store and buying what I want or ordering online via my carrier or the Apple Store. Waiting in line on launch day? Ain't happening...lol

    If I was getting the 6, I think waiting in line would be fun.

    Pre-order for me and I don't care if I get it on launch day. I don't have time to wait in long lines.

    I've waited in line the last several years. For the amusement factor mainly. You meet all sorts of people who also love Apple stuff and I've never had any trouble getting someone to hold my place in line for a bathroom trip, etc.

    I read through last year's "Official Waiting in Line for the iPhone 5s" thread and there were lots of people saying how friendly the people are in the lines

    You probably saw my posts then. I gave occasional line length estimates over the course of the night. I've actually run into some of the same people each year which is fun.

    If I'm bored enough, I would wait in line just to pass the time and possibly meet new people along the way.

    I had a blast waiting in line last year but I only went several hours prior to opening. That still placed me third in line.

    I will more than likely be waiting in-line if Apple decides not to do preorders like last year. That was ridiculous. Any other year they allow preorders a week before and it's at your door on release day. THATS what I like.

    Waiting in line seems like such an archaic use of time now...but I get the appeal of being part of the "hype" and experiencing the event first hand...I'll be pre-ordering as usual.

    Never been in line for an iPhone. But when my son was a bit younger we waited in line for the R2D2 Droid. He loves star wars, it was pretty fun. When I retire I'm gonna have to do it just once.

    Nice. If I go and wait, I'll probably end up showing up at about 9-10 PM the night before. I was reading through a forum on MacRumors and it said at my local Apple Store last year there were only 3 people lined up at 11:30 PM, so I'd probably be first in line haha

    I got to experience waiting in line last year and it was great! I had fun but...it's waiting...in line...so no I probably won't do it again. At least I can say I've done it though.

    I waited in line for my first iPhone in 2009...I'd love to do it again but it's not feasible.
    I'll order online and pick up in store, if that's an option.

    I hope it's available for pre-order so the lines won't be as nuts as they were for the 5s
