New York City was clearly in the throes of iPhone 6 madness this morning, but now that the folks who didn't claim their spots in the city's Apple store lines early this morning (or last night) are leaving work, are there any phones left for them to buy? We called up Apple outposts to find out.
Meatpacking: Yes, they have the iPhone 6, although the rep we spoke to couldn't tell us if they'd sell out by the end of the night. As of 4:30, the wait time was about an hour.
Fifth Avenue: Only "a handful" of iPhone 6's are left at the cube, and the Upper East Side store is all sold out of the iPhone 6 Plus. The rep couldn't give us a wait time estimate because it's been "jumping" all day, but it sounds like if you're not in line already you're out of luck.
Grand Central: Grand Central has the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, but there's a four hour wait time...and they close at 8:30.
Upper West Side: The Broadway shop also has the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and while the rep couldn't give us a wait time, she did say the line was "not super long" as of 5pm.
Soho: "Our store is experiencing extremely high call volume at this time, and will not be able to assist you over the phone." :(
