    I wonder how many people here say they aren't upgrading, watch the keynote and then are the first in line to buy it.
    I'd bet a lot. This will be my first time trying to get an iPhone on launch day. Is it as difficult as people make it out to be? Do you really need to wait in line of you want one within the first couple of weeks? I've always been an Android user prior to the 6S+ and have been able to walk right up to the counter on launch day and purchase the latest Samsung phone.

    Well if you go in for the Apple Upgrade Program and you wake up early enough that day you can reserve a device and they'll hold it for you at the Apple Store of your choosing.

    It really depends on how big of an upgrade it is. Generally, I have found that it is harder to get a phone in a redesign year than an "S" year.

    However, I have found that it is getting easier to get the phone on launch day. They are finally matching supply to meet the demand for the most part.

    I used the Apple Upgrade Program to get my 6s Plus and my wife's 6s. I made two 8:00AM reservations at one of my local Apple Stores, showed up around 7:50, was paired up with an Apple Store employee, and was in the store picking up my iPhones at 8:00 sharp. They had a separate line for people with reservations so I didn't have to stand in line with the thousands of people waiting in the main line.

    I found it to be the most seamless way to get the new phone. Lining up is never a guarantee (although they usually have enough stock for everyone, it might not be the colour or storage option you want). You could also order online and have it shipped, but the wait for UPS can be killer.

    It worked perfectly. Now, I did wake up at 3:00AM EST to make the reservation right when the preorder started but I don't think it was completely necessary.

    I'll wake up at 7 or 8 am in the morning. I was told by Apple that they get shipments several times a day for a week after the launch day to keep up with demand.

    Probably what I'm going to do this time around as well.

    As every iphone that comes out, it comes with new features. the iphone 7 will have three versions: the base iphone 7, the plus version, and a pro version. all phones will be faster than the 6 and will sport a new camera which already blows our minds away. the pro will definitely be a worthy upgrade

    I'll probably just get the Plus model, not the Pro. Either that or the older 6s model if I can get it on a steal of a deal.

    Sadly, they will not.
    They might be. They're still only rumours

    At this point in time, it's worth the wait

    Or you could wait for their 10th anniversary iPhone next year
