    They open the mall for Apple. They do it every year for enclosed Apple stores.
    Ok that is good to know. What sucks is that of the three stores in my area only one (the busiest) has early hours on launch day.

    If I remember correctly, 2 iPhones per person was the limit for the 5s launch. I may be wrong.
    That is correct. It’s been that way since the original iPhone launch.

    I did the 4 and 4S launch and each time I was approached by a guy who already had his 2 phone limit and wanted to pay me an extra 60 bucks to buy an extra since he was not allowed any more. Tempting but I declined. For the 4S launch, the guy ended up getting thrown out of the mall because he was asking literally every single person in line and became bothersome.

    Luckily, I have TWO apple stores fairly close to me but both are inside malls. The apple store that is like 10 mins from my house is the one that I have my iPhone 6 Plus pre ordered for in store pick up Friday. However, there is a new Apple Store opening Friday at another mall about 25 mins away from me. I went to the mall that has the grand opening for the new Apple Store during my lunch break today and there are already two people camped out in the parking lot for the grand opening and iPhone 6 launch. The new store is also giving away limited edition Apple t-shirts to the first few people in line for the iPhone 6. Both stores are gonna be crazy friday but the new store in my area is gonna be the craziest.

    Anyway, since I pre ordered I don't have to camp out like I did for the iPhone 4. But If I was gonna camp out, I would get in line at like 3 or 4 AM Friday.

    We live a couple of miles from an Apple store. I am off Thursday and Friday. We will probably start cruising the parking lot late afternoon Thursday and getting in line when we see it become necessary. We will have some beverages and fully charged iPads and make a fun evening out of it!

    Just wondering. Will they limit the number of devices each person can buy? If they don't have limitation, the first ten persons will probably buy up all the inventory and then sell them at eBay.
    Apple Stores limit you to two.

    I was going to pre-order but honestly forgot until a few hours after it started so I was either stuck waiting or going in store. Long story short I went to sprint for the 5s got there around 4:30-5, I was the first person there but it was for nothing because they didn't have the phone I wanted and they were forcing you to buy $300 worth of accessories or they wouldn't let you purchase the phone (so word of advice for those in Las Vegas planning on going directly to Sprint, the 5 2 stores did this and last year a lot more of them did it, great way for them to make more commission). I was going to go home but a few hours later wound up at an apple store at like 10:30 am they had all sizes/carriers in space grey and 1 white/silver left and it happened to be for sprint so I took that. We were also limited to 1 phone per person at the Apple store. I plan on going at around 4 this year, I am not set on a color and if I was I am leaning more towards the space grey anyway, I also think that we get more supply due to the tourist traffic/sales and that we have 3 apple stores within like 5-6 miles of each other. I'm also hoping it won't be as bad or just about the same as last year because of all the people that preordered this year that didn't have the option last year.

    FYI, I was planning to scope out my local Verizon store because I'd had good success in the past coming at around 6am but at least the one I called in Fort Worth said they will not have any 6 plus, only the 6. I hope that's not true for the Verizon stores you guys may be planning to hit, but you might call and find out. Who knows, perhaps I was given bad info, but I called back and asked another rep at that store who told me the same thing.

    That's crazy. I would have reported that store to Apple, they're not supposed to force accessory sales.

    It wasn't Apple, it was Sprint. I did call and complain. The employees that day when they got there at like 7 said 100% they had no gold but they did have white/silver so I waited the additional hour for them to open. When they opened the doors all of a sudden they only had 16gb space grey and my main reason for wanting the 5s was because I was tired of black color. The year prior 1 store did that and I guess the dm thought it was such a bright idea that they let others do it too. It makes sense for them because the sales associates make more commission and it boosts company sales but from a customer standpoint it is just wrong and shady.

    I understand the miscommunication on my part. I was referring to sprint. That sprint shouldn't have forced toy to buy accessories; and to tell apple about it.

    According to the Apple Store near me, they aren't even letting people lineup until 6am Friday. Probably because it's in a outdoor mall and they can't have people just loitering for 12 hours while it's closed.
