    I bought an iPhone at the Apple Store in Frankfurt this week. I would strongly recommend reserving your preferred model via the website. Cannot post links right now there fore add [Redacted]

    Right now reservation is not available. It will become available a few minutes after 12pm tonight and you can reserve an iPhone for you to pickup tomorrow.

    The process worked fine for me. Reservation became available at 20 minutes past 12pm. I ordered an iPhone for pickup at 4pm, was there at 3.30pm, waited in line for 10 minutes and left with my new phone.

    Usually it's same day reservation and pickup. For instance, I had to reserve my iphone 6 at midnight and pick it up the same day in the afternoon.

    I think it is same-day pickup, so you will meed to reserve it for the day you want to get it.

    Same day pickup, you pick what time you want to pick it up. You only have an hour though (for example between 10-11am). That's how I got mine 2 days after launch.

    Thank you very much everyone, you have no idea how you made my life easier. Just one more thing: I tried today between 00:00 and 01:00 but they only had the 16gb model for the reservation. Can this change or the store only allows the 16gb model reservation?

    It ought to change. I could choose every single variant of the phone.

    It only shows what they receive/have in stock. If it only shows 16GB, then that is all they have at the time you checked. You don't have to pay anything on the spot. You pay for it when you pick it up. If you don't pick it up at your allotted time, it just gets put back into inventory.
