iPhone 6 Quest: Day 15

Day 16

Today we got transferred into the cage. This will be our last night here and we expect it to be the coldest yet. No rain, though.

This is how we woke up :)

This is how we woke up 🙂

The people from the NYPD came early this morning to help the Apple staff build the cage. We went inside at about 3pm in groups of five. We could feel that in only a few hours the quest was going to be done.

We were surprised to see that most of the people in line were Chinese. We asked around why and we found out that the release of the iPhone 6 and 6+ in China has been delayed until December or probably January 2015; therefore, right now an iPhone 6 over there is worth around $4000USD. That’s when we understood that most of those people were resellers. Most of them were old women or men with children.

Up to a couple minutes ago, the line went all the way to 63th ST, that’s 5 blocks away. CRAZY! The media will get here early in the morning. Follow our twitter account for more info!

Time to sleep, at least for a few hours.

The RAVPower Team is READY!

iPhone 6 Quest: Day 6

Day 6

Finally, the iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch were announced today as well as the release date: September 19th, 2014, exactly 10 from today. This means, that this adventure is still far from over.

Today we got media from all over the world interviewing us. Big agencies, freelancers, bloggers, they all wanted to hear our story, especially the answer to the question… “Why are you camping out for a phone?” The problem was that they were here very early this morning, way before we woke up. Even Lauren Simonetti from Fox News twitted a photo of all of us sleeping and asking “Should I wake them up?”. Thankfully, she didn’t.

It is crazy how this iPhone 6 quest has escalated so quickly. A week ago no one knew who we were and today, our faces are all over the world in different languages.

About the iPhone, we’ve decided to each buy the 5.5″ iPhone 6 Plus with 128GB. I’m guessing that will be enough for us. We (mostly me) are a bit upset about the Apple Watch release date: beginning of 2015. I was excited to get one, but well… I guess I’ll have to wait, except that this time I will do it at home.

Health Report: Jonah is as healthy as a horse and me, well, I still have a sore throat.

Weather Report: cold, windy, and cloudy… perfect for camping out on the streets of New York City.

That’s it for tonight, I will continue tomorrow. Good night!

Cheers!
