Apple iPhone sales always lead to a huge queue outside its flagship stores. Generally, people lineup outside Apple’s retail stores a day in advance in order to be the first to get their iDevice. With iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, reports indicate shorter lines and lesser supply from the Cupertino-based consumer technology giant.
In previous years, people have camped outside shops for up to a week in advance, to be one of the first to get their hands on the new devices – with hundreds joining the queue on launch day.
At Apple’s flagship London store in Covent Garden, only a few people braved the torrential rain and flash floods to queue up outside the shop before it opened at 8am this morning

Unlike previous years, people have been actively discouraged from queuing outside the stores.
Apple said that only people who pre-ordered the devices online would be able to get their hands on one today.
“On 16 September, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available at Apple Stores by reservation or pickup only.”
The company added that “limited quantities of iPhone 7 in silver, gold, rose gold, and black” would be available for walk-in customers, but that the iPhone 7 Plus is completely sold out, along with the “jet black” iPhone 7.
