    And surprisingly, no rallies that part of HK. Maybe the protesters have thrown away their old iPhones. Or they need the new ones because the cameras are better for capturing intimate moments with the police. Or they’re just bored now.

    A relative couldn’t get her reserved iPhone 11 Pro from AS Causeway Bay. She says there were hundreds more waiting outside hoping for it to open. I had hoped she would buy two, one for her and one for me (despite my reservations of getting one) ;)

    Nope. Just the relative. ;)

    Had to rebook tickets from HK to Singapore next month though.

    Good news is, for her, she got an iPhone. From a scalper. But only one :mad:

    Supply is pretty abundant so scalpers are done for now. All units are available at fortress and all apple authorized resellers at SRP. No stock on all Apple Stores as usual so just buy from authorized resellers.

    Either my cousin is likely scamming me by saying she got me an iPhone from a scalper or she never stood in line. Either way, if it ain’t midnight green I’m not paying for it :ROFLMAO:
