I'm #18 in line for the 128GB Jet Black 7+. Reading through some of this, it seems like I won't have my device on launch day, likely.
How do I go about getting it from the Apple Store? I remember for the 6, there was a link you could click and randomly they would become in-stock and you could reserve the device and pick it up. Is there something similar this year?
By doing a carrier upgrade when you click pre order on apple.ca you get a notification that tells you that the page wont be live again until 8 am on the 17th of september. This is how it was for the 6 and 6s if im not mistaken. Everyday they reset the site and then the clicking wars begin. Thats how i got my hands on my 6plus. I had it reserved through rogers and then cancelled becaue i was able to get it on the second day after launch by being up super early with really good internet i got lucky and put one aside for myself and just came into the appointment. I recommend any one who is in a massive rush to get their apple fix soon to do that. Everyday the page goes live at 8am where you will have the chance to book what you want.
Im sure it will be live on saturday at 8am. Whether or not inventory of the device you want is availble that is a different story on its own.
So my Apple order (7+ 128 gold) is still showing as "Processing Items". Is this normal with Friday just around the corner?
