It was an unusual day for Apple. The iPhone 8 was released around the world, but many Apple Stores didn’t have massive lines waiting overnight or even at the time of doors being opened. Crowds were noticeably missing at quite a few locations. It seems that consumers have decided to make purchases online, keep their current iPhone, or wait for the iPhone X.
Let’s go on a tour together of Apple Stores in the United States and beyond.
Apple Union Square — San Francisco, California
iPhone 8 has arrived. About 60 people are in line at the Apple Town Square (er store) in SF this morning. pic.twitter.com/lKiXKyJBa5— Tripp Mickle (@trippmickle) September 22, 2017
Two hours after opening, the SF Apple Store line is steady at 65 people. Many international buyers on vacay looking to pay less, get earlier pic.twitter.com/RRo6AswMnD— Tripp Mickle (@trippmickle) September 22, 2017
Apple Brisbane — Brisbane, Australia
This is the extent of the line up for the new iPhone in Brisbane. Just a dozen deep. Clearly not as much excitement as in previous years. pic.twitter.com/iJGg6S3k3Z— Shannon Marshall-McCormack (@ShannonMM9) September 21, 2017
Apple Bayshore Shopping Centre — Ottawa, Canada
Apple Regent Street — London, England
Apple Boylston Street — Boston, Massachusetts
Apple The Promenade at Chenal — Little Rock, Arkansas
Apple Pasadena — Pasadena, California
This is odd. In 10 years of covering iPhone launches, I've never seen a release day with not a single person in line at an Apple store. pic.twitter.com/lEM4ZYZPAW— Rich DeMuro (@richontech) September 22, 2017
Apple Yorkdale — Toronto, Canada
Apple SoHo — New York, New York
Apple West 14th Street — New York, New York
Only 9 or so waiting to get an iPhone 8 outside the Apple Store on 14th - some more inside and around the corner, but less than I expected pic.twitter.com/gOTSKLZ5cI— Brett Williams (@bdwilliams910) September 22, 2017
Apple World Trade Center — New York, NY
The line at the World Trade Center Apple Store at 9:45 a.m. About a dozen people. pic.twitter.com/m3eWjATopI— Jon Fortt (@jonfortt) September 22, 2017
Apple Arrowhead — Glendale, Arizona
Popping over at the Apple Store right now. pic.twitter.com/M3Yo9bDbLa— Dom Esposito (@macmixing) September 22, 2017
