The advantage to the Apple Store is that they are much more likely to have the exact model / colour / size you want on hand more quickly following launch day as Apple will hold on to a good portion of inventory themselves vs. sending it out to carriers.

Hello @jnardari

That is correct. Apple sends about 80% of their stock to their own stores then anyone else. This is a way of saying " come to us instead" tactic.

That's what I mean.  I have an Apple Store close by and they have a phone for me for Friday which they will connect to my plan so I think I will just get it there.  I am 216 for an iPhone 7 128GB Black.

They gave me a 9-9:30 time slot.  I assume I don't have to line up if I have a specific time.  I plan to arrive just before 9.

Hello @djn18

They will give u a time slot but from past pre orders I noticed that the make u wait in a line for those picking up the device and then call ur name out when it's either ur time. Do remember even though that's the time frame, you may have to wait longer due to the reps being busy.

I think you may be right.  That's why I will wait on my Rogers order as well.  I would think 216 across Canada for the iPhone 7 128 in basic Black would not be too bad.

I am in the same boat.  One with Rogers, one with Apple for a 12pm slot on Friday.  If Rogers one comes Friday (#46 in line) I'll get that.  If not, I'll go with Apple.

Reserevation system shows as "under maintenance" perhaps they are working away?
