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

    I'm yet to stand in line, but it sounds fun to me.

    Pre-order for me. As much as I'm sure I would enjoy the interaction of lining up, between work (both my day job and CB mod duties lol) and family, my time is far too valuable to spend in a line up.

    I've only gotten one Apple product on launch day. That was an iPad 3 that I had stayed up until midnight to pre-order the minute it was available online, so that it would get it delivered the same time it hit stores.

    I waited in line for my iPhone 5 on launch day. I got there an hour before the store opened and there were four people in front of me; about another forty turned up after me. It was pretty civilised but then this is the UK. We probably all drank tea, sang songs about the Queen and played Cricket; I can't remember exactly.

    I'd prefer just preordering it (Preferably) picking it up once it's ready for me. I hate getting phones shipped out however as I get so anxious waiting for the package to arrive.

    Maybe it's just naive of me to say but I always worry about getting mugged or something if you end up waiting in line. Granted I've never been to a launch day before so that's just my own thoughts.

    You'd be fine if you're in a mall. It felt like waiting for concert tickets. Loads of fun, everybody was happy, everybody was nice. And the employees came out clapping and giving out water and coffee and donuts. It was great.

    I like that culture you guys have in the Apple stores there in the US. We don't even have Apple stores besides authorised retailers here in Singapore, and it would have been cool if we had those sorts of things here.

    Which Apple Store did you wait at? I know there are lots to choose from since you're in the same general vicinity as me. I've waited at the Tyson's store since the 4S.

    I went to Pentagon City. It was a great experience. LOVE that store. That's where I'll go to get my MacBook Pro. Just a couple of stops on the Metro, really.

    Preorder. I don't need the satisfaction of saying I have the new iPhone on the very first day it comes out. I can wait a few days I'm not impatient.

    Nice! I'm planning on getting to my local Apple Store at 9 PM the night before. Last year, there were only 3 people there at 11 PM, so I think I might end up being first. But yeah, I'll be waiting all night

    I could go to the carrier store (T-Mo) that is within a mile of where I live, but I'd rather just go to the Apple Store and live the experience there. You don't get the same level of excitement at a carrier store as you do at the Apple Store though
