Canadian iPhone X Line Ups Already Underway at Apple Stores

Share:

iPhone X launches tomorrow and line ups have already formed at some Apple Stores in Canada. Apple previously announced retail stores would have limited iPhone X stock at launch and customers were encouraged to “arrive early.”

At the Apple Store in Burnaby, BC, at Metrotown Mall, there were already two people in line as of 6PM PST.

Moving out east, the Eaton Centre Apple Store in Toronto, had roughly 60 people in line as 9PM EST:

With online pre-orders and Reserve and Pick Up options, waiting in line for an iPhone isn’t as common (or fun!) as it used to be, or even necessary.

Are you waiting in line outside an Apple Store right now? Send us a picture on Twitter (@iPhoneinCanada) and use the hashtag #iPhoneXlineCAN to keep tabs.

    why’s this still a thing? it’s going to be 2-3 degrees overnight in Vancouver :S

  • People are absolutely mental.

  • Salinger

    Not that I’d do that anyway, but makes me all the more happy I made myself get up at 3:00am last week for reserve and pick-up. 🙂

  • Lining up is fun…after doing it once and once only. Curious if line ups this time are again taken over by scalpers, like they have in the past in Vancouver.

  • I’m going to line up around 6 AM, hope there’s not too many folks out there.

  • Salinger

    I’m too old for camping out. LOL My idea of roughing it is staying in a hotel that doesn’t have free wi-fi.

  • FragilityG4

    Sounds like shorts weather from here in Ontario!

  • Eddie H.

    Anyone in Calgary? Who’s lining up lol

  • Arvind Bala

    Lol. Not in this snowy -10 C night. Reserved one at Best buy for pick up tomorrow.

  • Jay

    Only about 15 people outside Pacific Center Mall in downtown Vancouver right now. Luckily I live across the street. I’m gonna head home and come back about 5am. Supposed to feel like -5 tonight. To cold to stay out with those crazy 15 people haha

  • Marco L

    Anyone at Upper Canada Mall?

  • Kam

    Can you keep us posted Jay

  • Jay

    For sure

  • Shark

    Are you lining up?

  • Eddie H.

    Yeah. I’m at market mall right now. About 10 people here. But it’s all outside. There was about 30 people at chinook an hour ago. Are you?

  • Cody Woodward

    I’m looking for updates on Guildford Apple store. Anyone able to keep me posted? I’m on graveyards and won’t be off work in Vancouver until 6:30am. Could be to guildford by 7am. Want to know lineup numbers and how many units they are saying they have (looking for a 256gb space grey). Just trying to save myself the commute after a long graveyard shift if it’s not worth it. Thanks in advance.

  • Shark

    Yeah i’m Going to be there!!

  • Eddie H.

    Chinook or market mall?

  • Shark

    Market mall!

  • toot

    Was at Coquitlam center around 10pm…. about 10-15 people lining up.

  • Mr. Speedy

    ~25 people in line at Carrefour Laval @ 3am. 15 C and raining!

  • Mr. Speedy
  • Tom Tom

    it’s already snowing here in Vancouver 🙁 good luck to those waiting in line!

  • Talin m

    Anyone at markville mall?

  • Maxwell Chew
  • Maxwell Chew

    Had to do a recount, my estimate are wrong and looks more like 20ish to 30 now in line

  • Thanks!
    I might head down that way in a couple hours.
    I’m thinking maybe the snow will keep many away.

  • Greg Chi

    How is the the line up at Chinook? Is the lineup outside?

  • Maxwell Chew

    So far no snow down here yet it’s cold! Recommend gloves, a toque and a warm jacket!

  • FragilityG4

    I was wondering the same thing! I think the last time they gave everyone in line a wrist band with their place number on it so they could leave and come back. I could be wrong, but I do remember that… I have never waited in line personally.

  • Steve

    Any answers on this?

  • Maxwell Chew

    I noticed the line seems a lot shorter this year compared to my days waiting for the iPhone 4/4S/5

  • Guy

    Anyone see the lineup size in Mapleview Burlington?

  • Eddie H.

    About a 100 people here now. The line is inside

  • Greg Chi

    Thanks. How about at market mall?

  • Maxwell Chew

    Looks about to 40ish in line as of 5:04am
    Slowly growing

  • Mr. Speedy

    Arrived @ 2am at Carrefour Laval, was 14th in line, left the line @ 7:30am after learning all they had available is space grey 64 Gb! Way to go Apple! Not even sure if the 1st one in line got a 256 Gb or a silver phone!! Big disappointment!

  • Cornfed710

    That sucks, thanks for the update.

  • Bailey

    Well over 100 people. Not a lot of stock.

  • Eddie H.

    Chinook sold out of 256 already. Only had couple units. They are taking orders in line

  • Kim

    My husband was 28th in line at Square One Mississauga and they just announced all 256 are gone for what they had in stock. They had not even gotten to him to ask what he wanted.

  • Jay

    I’m here! Looks like I’m #100 Hopefully they have more then 20 phones fingers crossed!

  • Maxwell Chew

    Good luck! I hope there’s enough! I heard from the news in SF, thieves has robbed 300+ iPhones Xs from the Apple Store. I assume most Apple stores would have that kind of amount by gauging from this info. Fingers crossed ?https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f7948aa0ab229080eb967ef35971d56dc6331fdfb55c6710b8521cdfe71c3c5c.png

  • Cody Woodward

    Anyone from Apple let you know what stock is like or what models are available?

  • Just arrived 5:50AM
    Looks to be 40-50

  • Cody Woodward

    That 300 probably has to cover the reserved models as well. Also that’s a pretty big flagship store for them so I’m pretty sure they would get more inventory than the average store. I’m gonna guess that probably 100 of those max are for walk ins

  • Way to join the fun, Tom! 😛

  • Ray

    Anyone at Mapleview Burlington or Square One Mississauga? What are the lines like?

  • what a reversal of weather for once lol

  • Yeah man, didn’t plan on it, but excitement got the best of me and here I am lol.

    Crowds are tame compared to the iPhone 4 launch we lined up in years ago

  • Guy

    Yeah I came to try my luck. Lineup was huge all the way from store entrance all the way to the next mall entrance next to food court. I gave up and left.

  • Maxwell Chew
  • Eddie H.

    Any luck at market mall?

  • Potzie2

    Any updates?

  • Pacific Center. Around 6:45 they started offering people Water, Coffee, granola bars and Apples (the fruit)

    Very nice.

    Close to about 100 people now in line.

  • DP

    Wasn’t gonna line up, but there in 2 min :-). Take a chance with only 100 people in line.

  • DP

    Here. Line is small compared to previous years. But prob less stock too. So it’s a gamble for an hour.

  • Online pre-orders and Reserve and Pick Up definitely impacts lines. But lining up for iPhone 4 was pretty wild

  • Ouch, that sucks. Try Reserve and Pick Up online tomorrow at 6AM.

  • DP

    They came out and said an Apple employee is processing the line to get a name and email and what you’re buying so that you’ll know if it’s in stock. Already at H&M now too since first of line is inside. Seems like a pretty decent chance for what should only be an hour in line before finding out if it pays off

  • Pacific Center. Everyone being told 64GB space grey is the only model in right now.

  • DP

    Only 64 space gray in stock this morning. Left line.

  • Maxwell Chew

    Bad news for whoever lining up for the 256 models, their officially sold out and the first few got them. Only 64GB available

  • Damn man, should have bought it anyway, then just returned it when your 256 came in. Heh

  • DP

    My investment at that time was only about 20 min in the line, and now I can leave work a little early on a Friday! I got lucky with the reserve and pickup before, so will try that the next few days.

  • Jay

    I am getting the 64GB space grey. I use a case so should be good. Stil outside shivering 🙁

  • Cody Woodward

    I was at Guildford Mall with like 40-50 in line and they said they had no 256’s at all and that they weren’t sure if they would even have enough 64’s for the people in line. I only want 256 so I left.

  • Apple Staff talking. (Pacific Center)
    They said the back people in line may not get one, we are safe, but new comers may be out of luck.

  • Jay

    They sold out of all models now. So don’t come down to PC unless you have a res. They said they will get limited stock tomorrow.

  • Yup! Confined. Sold out.
    Myself and the 2 friends I made around me made it by about 30 spots

  • 9:15 I walk out with an iPhone X.
    Woot!

  • James

    Fairview mall apple store sold out of all models ???

  • Arvind Bala

    I’m with Fido on a BYOD plan (45$ 4GB). I would like to buy the IPX through Best buy. I have a 256 GB Silver reserved for me and going to the store this evening to buy it. My question is will i be able to use my fido dollars towards the full cost of the phone? Have anyone here used Fido dollars towards payment for an outright purchase at Best buy or Source? I called Fido and they are not sure if Best buy would let me use fido dollars. They have asked me to check with BB and no one in BB is sure too.
    I’m planning on getting the phone using the Best buy credit card (24 equal payments, 0% intersest and no admin fee). Has anyone here bought the phone through financing?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Arvind Bala

    Curious how many phones Market mall and chinook had this morning.

  • Eddie H.

    not sure on exact numbers, but at chinook they only had 256 in silver, and ran out after like 6 people in line ( most people got 2 phones) then they ran out of the silver 64 half way thru the line. however they had tons of 64 black as people were still coming at 930 when I left and were able to get one. market mall was all sold out by 9am or so they told me when I called

  • Arvind Bala

    Thanks Eddie. Hope you were able to get one.

  • Anthony

    Any chance GVRD stores get stock for tomorrow morning?

  • Bailey

    Sorry for the late update. But they sold out around 8:30. They had less than 100. Only he first 40-50 got phones (cuz they all got 2 phones each).

    On launch day apple has to do a 1 phone limit for people in line. This 2 phone limit sucks for lines up launch day people. It only promotes reselling.

  • Cody Woodward

    I was told yes

  • Greg Chi

    Thanks Eddie. Hope you got what you waited to get.
