Apple Stores open ‘til midnight, two iPhones per person

Apple has announced that it will be keeping all 164 of its retail stores open until midnight tomorrow, June 29, for the launch of the iPhone, and providing online availability information from its retail store’s web site. Beginning Saturday, and continuing through the summer, Apple Stores in the US will open daily at 9:00 a.m. for iPhone sales, and eager iPhone customers will be able to check their local stores’ iPhone availability beginning at 9:00 p.m. the night before. iPhones will also be available for online purchase from Apple’s web site starting at 6PM on the 29th, with free shipping.

Purchases of the iPhone will be limited to two per person, on a first come, first served basis, unlike the one per person limits imposed at AT&T stores. Support for the new handset will be provided at the each Apple Store’s Genius Bar, and personal training will be offered through Apple’s new One on One program. Beginning Saturday morning, free, in-depth workshops on how to get the most out of iPhone will be offered throughout the day at all stores.

“Apple retail stores were created for this moment—to let customers touch and experience a revolutionary new product,” said Ron Johnson, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail. “With our legendary Genius Bar support, free workshops and our One to One personal training, we’re here to help customers get the most from their new iPhone.”

Dear Charles,

Thank you _SO_ much for using ‘til instead of till. It’s refreshing to see people that still know how to write properly. It’s a small thing I know, but hey…

...I remember in high school, sophomore year (11 years ago), “till” was in my world history book.  I was pretty damn sure that that wasn’t a word, and it was strange to see it in a *textbook*.  Sheesh.

Only 2 iphones per person, I find that very funny.

If you can get them online, there really should be that big of lines outside of the Apple and AT&T stores. I wonder how many they will allocate for online purchase.

Am I the only person who doesn’t give a flying #$%$# about the iPhone? I will be so pleased when this launch is over and there’s something else on this site to read about.

Actually, “till” is the more correct form. ‘til is generally accepted but not technically a word.  Check your dictionaries guys.

No, “till” is a word used to describe rotating the soil to aerate it, while “‘til” is an the proper abbreviation for “until”.

From ‘The American Heritage Dictionary’ accessed online at:

Usage Note: Till and until are generally interchangeable in both writing and speech, though as the first word in a sentence until is usually preferred: Until you get that paper written, don’t even think about going to the movies. ยท Till is actually the older word, with until having been formed by the addition to it of the prefix un-, meaning “up to.” In the 18th century the spelling ‘till became fashionable, as if till were a shortened form of until. Although ‘till is now nonstandard, ‘til is sometimes used in this way and is considered acceptable, though it is etymologically incorrect.
