The day gadget lovers, especially Apple fans, have been waiting for is drawing close. iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will hit the stores only a couple of days from now. But, not everyone can grab the much-awaited devices on the day of the release as Apple stores usually run out of stock on the first day due to huge demand.

Apple usually asks carriers to deliver its device to customers who have pre-ordered on the day of release, but some lucky ones have reportedly got their iPhone 6s almost five days before the release date. Visual designer Adrienne Alpern from San Diego, California, received the new device from AT&T on Monday afternoon and she shared the photo on her Twitter account, according to MacRumors

Apple has announced that iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available at 8:00 am local time on Friday, 25 September, at Apple's retail stores in countries like the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico and Singapore.

But, can you buy the device on the launch day? Maybe yes, though there is high probability of not getting the device as mad rush is expected. Apple has also advised customers to arrive at stores early, anticipating huge crowd and possibility of stores running out of stock.

So what do you do to get the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus on the first day? Here are tips:

  • Expect long queues outside Apple stores on Friday, as fans will try their best to grab the device. So, make sure that you arrive the stores as early as possible.
  • Customers staying overnight outside Apple stores waiting for it to open is not an uncommon scene in the past. If you want to be the first, or among the first to get the device, you may have to spend a night out the store. Some may say it's crazy but some even bring friends and family members to wait in turns to make sure that they stay in the queue.
  • It's first come first serve, so early birds will get the device.
  • In case you fail to get the device on the first day and don't want to miss on the second day, you can reserve the device ONLINE for pick-up at your local Apple Store based on availability.
