While we thought that long lines for new Apple products were a thing of the past. We were completely surprised at the turnout today at the Apple Retail Store at the Eaton Centre. While this is the only Apple Store in the downtown core, the iPhone 6's were expected to be sold in various carriers as well as Best Buy, Future Shop and others. There's also been a pre-order system in the works for some time now.
The iPhone 6 line started forming two days ago and by 6:30 a.m. was spilling over to the floor below. By 7:30, the line was snaking around two floors of the mall.
While many people in line were cleary ready to buy the next big device from Apple, it seemed like there were some who were keen on buying multiple iPhone 6's to sell at a profit on eBay or Craigslist. We received word from Apple Store specialists that the iPhone 6 Plus was already sold out and while this was expected since supply was known to be constrained, we didn't think they would sell out within minutes. The 'smaller' iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch display seems to be well stocked in all colours and sizes. For more insight on the new iPhones, check out my reviews (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus).

We're live at the Eaton Centre Apple Retail Store in Downtown Toronto where the lines for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are snaking through two floors of this large shopping mall. It is the longest line we've seen for an iPhone launch day ever and if the turnout here is any indication of the demand for the new iPhones, then Apple looks to have another blockbuster.

I recently posted my reviews for both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. I marvelled at the fact that in 2010, we had one iPad and one iPhone (albeit in different capacities and price points). Fast forward to 2014 and Apple has expanded their iOS device line considerably and there seems to be something for everyone.

Just like when the iPad mini seemed to be a reaction to market trends (which it quickly dominated to become the most popular 7.9-inch tablet), the iPhone 6 Plus is Apple’s attempt not just to redefine the large smartphone market but to eke out a whole new place in mobile computing.
The iPhone 6 Plus is the biggest departure for Apple’s iOS-powered smartphone line in seven years, and for what has remained as one of the most conservative screen sizes in the industry.
