For those who missed the initial pre-order window for Apple’s iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max and its September 21st launch date, the next best thing to acquire the phone is to wait in line, right? Right??
Every year, we see Canadians line up outside Apple Stores for iPhone launches and history has repeated itself for 2018.
One iPhone in Canada reader, Fabrizio, currently finds himself as first in line outside the Apple Store DIX30 in Brossard, Quebec.

Waiting in line overnight for an iPhone launch can be a lot of fun, but for those who have done it before (like yours truly), holy hell is it hard on the body (#lovesleep). With online pre-orders and Apple’s Reserve and Pick Up system, waiting in line is becoming less common nowadays.
Are you waiting in line for an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max right now (or Apple Watch Series 4)?
