    Today’s the PH launch eve. Many are having midnight launches where you can get your iPhones earlier than anyone else ... and of course freebies :)
    Where are you getting yours?
    What variants and color?
    What are your freebies?
    Share your experience in this thread for future release reference :)

    Never attended midnight launches, and tonight won't change that.

    Hoping to claim mine tomorrow at Power Mac Center (Power Plant Mall branch). Pro Max Gold 512GB. No freebies, I don't have 'fuc- you money' to pay someone to camp in my stead days before. :ROFLMAO:

    We'll see how tomorrow goes.

    if you’re buying on the midnight launch or even the launch day itself, expect a long queue. There’s a possibility na maubusan ka din pero if like you mentioned a week after pa, they might have already restocked

    F62F1B43-5CFD-4705-A0C5-97A84ED39061.jpeg freebies from Globe for the first 11 preorders!
    Apple Watch Series 5
    Apple TV HD
    Accommodation in Grand Hyatt BGC

    I believe is the best freebies by far among the other midnight releases!

    Pre-ordered my Pro Max 256Gb Space Gray at PMC MOA branch last Friday. Will be picking it up later.

    I actually pre-ordered Midnight Green but changed my mind when I watched some videos and saw how the Midnight Green looks like in some cases. Didn’t liked it. :LOL:

    I have plans to attend PMC’s midnight launch but since they do not accept BPI Madness Limit as mode of payment for the pre-order, I decided not to.

    Minsan nauubusan sila ng stock even on the midnight launch itself depende talaga sa demand for a specific storage size and color.

    I do remember nung nagrelease ung 7 plus here, sobrang in demand ung jet black, midnight launch pa lang ng BTB, ung ibang nakapila, naubusan na ng stock so they opted to a different storage size with the same color or same storage size but with a different color. (btw, I’m not 100% sure about this but I think I saw this story somewhere.)

    So if you want to buy especially the new color, I would suggest to pre-order or get a reservation.

    wow that's some crazy freebies out there!

    the last 2 iphone releases were not as crazy as it was with the Iphone 4 and 5 (I was using globe back then). for the Xs max, we just walked in to see if we can get one by chance and luckily there weren't much demand for the phones so we took one, same as this year...

    I tried my luck attending power mac center midnight launch party and it's definitely worth it. I was in GB3 by 6am and from 109 naging 39 ako sa pila dahil madaming scalper pinaalis. Worth 18k ung freebies nakuha then 15700 ung discount when I trade my almost 2yrs old iPhone 8+ 64gb smart locked network. +5% discount for SecBank CC and dapat may 1,500 na gc (I'll need to confirm this sa SecBank).

    Around 33,500 nalang binayaran ko sa Green iPhone11 128gb.

    Yeah! I thought the freebies were just cases, screen protectors and some vouchers but after unboxing, we were all amazed there's an apple watch and an apple tv included in our boxes.
