iPhone 6s Launch in U.S. and Canada Begins as Apple Stores Open

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus launch day has officially arrived in the United States and Canada as Apple Stores in eastern cities such as New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto and Washington D.C. have now opened at 8:00 am local time. The launch will continue westward across the U.S. and Canada over the next three hours.

Apple Stores will now begin fulfilling in-store reservations for the new iPhones and accepting walk-in purchases from the long queues that have formed at some locations. UPS and FedEx will also be making pre-order deliveries generally between the hours of 9:00 am and 8:00 pm to residential addresses.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus first arrived in New Zealand last night, and the new devices were quickly subjected to an early unboxing, drop test, teardown, bend test and camera comparison. The devices have now launched in all first wave countries, including the U.S., Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the U.K.

Yes , Apparently Samsung was there offering pillows and blankets for those in the queue.



Are all of those people actually wearing banner flag things on their backs? Could Samsung possibly get any more unfashionable and lame?

"I've been standing in line for five hours, but after reading this flag sticking out of your back, I am absolutely convinced to jump out of line and buy this Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ immediately! Why did nobody tell me before that I don't have to queue to buy an older cell phone?"

I am certain they get that response all the time.

But you don't get to meet all the cool people out there and the delivery man is too busy to converse.
Some of us consider that a perk.

Having the phone delivered to your house or office is much more convenient.

I wish I could line up for a brand new iPhone, but unfortunately I’m among the few people in the world who believe that the iPhone 5s is still the greatest phone ever made.

Still hanging out for a 4” phone with modern specs….
