If you’re looking to snag an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus from an Apple Store during its launch next Friday, there are some rules you need to follow.
First off, like previous years, Apple will limit customers to purchasing only two new iPhones per day and you can only buy two per store reservation.
On the big day, Apple will once again close normal Genius Bar appointment services to dedicate as many people as possible, about 50% of specialists and Geniuses, to iPhone sales. Other initiatives like Personal Training will also be shut down for the launch period.
For those of you camping out, Apple is expected to queue waiting customers into two line for reservations and new buyers. As with previous years, the company is also expected to provide food and drink to keep people happy.
The doors will open early at 8 AM for iPhone sales. Apple will begin allocating reservations for customers that need them about fifteen minutes before doors open. Customers can leave their queue and rejoin at their reservation time. Customers with wait times shorter than two hours will be encouraged to stay and wait as they may be able to be seen faster than the estimate.
Upon snagging the iPhone, customers will be informed as to the iPhone Upgrade Program, the unit’s upgrade eligibility and recycling options. After the purchase is processed, customers will be sent on their way to enjoy their new iPhones.
If the Apple Store doesn’t have the unit and configuration you’re looking for, customers will be encouraged to either place orders online or try to make a reservation for a future date. Reservations can be made online from 8am every day.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus go on sale next Friday, September 25th.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
