It’s that time of the year again, folks. The iPhone line ups have already started in Canada, as eager Apple customers wait for the company’s new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to launch tomorrow.
The following image was sent to us by iPhone in Canada reader Ram, who has started the first line up outside Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto. The image was emailed just before 6AM local time. He tells us there are already 9 people in line as of 12:12PM EDT.
If you’re going to wait in line for the iPhone 6s (we previously waited in line over 27 hours for the iPhone 4 and it was a grind), here are some quick tips:
- Bring a comfortable chair, preferably one that will allow you to stretch out your legs (trust me it’ll help)
- Bring light snacks, water, a portable battery charger, warm jacket
- Introduce yourself to your fellow neighbours in line, so they can ‘watch’ your spot when you need to get food or go to the bathroom. It’s also helpful to prevent line jumpers at the last minute.
- Don’t overpack as you’ll have to carry your stuff with you into the mall later
Apple Stores across Canada will open tomorrow at 8AM local time. As for stock, Apple previously stated “Most Apple stores will also have iPhone available for walk-in customers each day.”
Don’t want to wait in line? Your best bet is to take advantage of Reserve and Pick Up on Apple’s website, which resumes on Saturday, September 26 at 8AM local time.
If you’re waiting in line right now at an Apple Store, or plan to, let us know in the comments below. You can send pictures to tips @ iphoneincanada.ca (without the spaces) and also send us updates to share via Twitter @iPhoneinCanada (we’ll retweet when necessary).
