    Do you just stand in line for hours the whole time? What happens if you need to use the restroom, do you lose your place in line? Do you team up with people and save each other's place? How how long do you wait?

    I've never done this, before... Every iPhone I've bought in the past has been months after its release, either at Verizon or at Apple, so I have no idea what I'm in for.

    Have an old Gatorade bottle to pee in.

    (I am so, so kidding)

    Do you have a reservation? If so, don't worry about the line.

    If you don't, well, unless you take a buddy to hold your place you best be sure to make friends with those around you so you don't lose your place. People are literally camping out outside of apple stores already.

    I do not have my reservation yet, Apple said they would send it to me when they send me the email confirming that my phone is ready to be picked up.

    Aren't they doing special arrangement at Apple stores this year to split the lines and maybe more? Idk.

    That's what I meant, if you preordered you probably can forego the line waiting. They'll just tell you to show up and then they'll hand you one but keep in mind the staff will be hella busy so there may be a preorder line too, although it won't be as hectic on that side of things.

    If you have a in store pick up order then you will have a phone there waiting for you....you just have to pick it up usually with in 24 hours. This might help too Apple Stores reportedly have new and improved strategies to help iPhone 6 buyers Friday | iMore. When I did this for the iPhone4 there was one long line. At about 6 am Apple store employees came out and gave reservation cards to the walkups and checked us in that had pre-orders gave us a card. Looks like this go around they will have two separate lines one for pre orders and one for walkups.

    Since many people have preordered for pick up, I still need to show up early or does Apple email me an appointment of sorts?

    Hey for the lines, what is the ratio of Pre-Ordered people to Walk Ins? Like 3:1 or something like that?

    I want to say there were more walk ins that pre-orderes but they were letting us in the store 10:1 so 10 pre-ordered to 1 walk in customer
