Man spends 23 days in front of the Fifth Avenue NYC Apple Store to pick up his iPhone 7 Plus
It is all over until next year, when the launch of the 10th anniversary Apple iPhone results in even more pomp and circumstance. But that is in the future. Yesterday, a group of individuals who had camped out in front of the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City, picked up their new Apple iPhone 7 or Apple iPhone 7 Plus (or both in some cases). Take Jaime Gonzalez, who spent 23-days in front. Gonzales was first in line as the doors opened yesterday morning. Inside, he picked up the new iPhone 7 Plus he had pre-ordered.
A week and a half was how long Andreas Francis chose to wait on line. She had attempted to pre-order the red hot Jet Black version of the iPhone 7 Plus, but was shut out. She ended up with a black iPhone Plus and an iPhone 7.
Lines were noticeably smaller around the world, but that didn't stop Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster from forecasting higher sales for the 2016 models. U.S. carriers like Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T reported strong year-over-year increases in pre-orders which partially explains the shorter lines. One of those who pre-ordered the device was Paige Hogan, who nonetheless showed up at the Fifth Avenue store to collect his iPhone 7 Plus. "I actually pre-ordered it, so I was only in line for like, 20 minutes, it was super easy," he said.
