Are there articles and videos for people who are waiting in line right now? Like last year, the year before, etc? It's funny
WWDC 2023 is coming on June 5 - Here is everything you need to know about the event!
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.
That's crazy. I would have reported that store to Apple, they're not supposed to force accessory sales.
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.
Same thing in the bay area in Emeryville, CA. They're not letting anyone line up til' 6am so I'll head there in the morning. I'm still thinking of going to Sprint stores in my area but I don't know if there is a line or what. Didn't get to check =(
I'm trying to figure out a strategy to still try and be early in line. Maybe try to get to the parking lot at like 5:40? I'm hoping with preorders being so high that everyone just did that and I'll be able to snag a in store stock one.
My thoughts exactly! Can't even preorder and pick up in any of the bay area apple stores! all unavailable! Well, good luck to both of us lol
