Judging by the excitement and "sleep outside Apple stores in tents" lines for pre-ordering the much anticipated iPhone6 - it seems the Kingdom of (Steve) Jobs is still reigning. Though Apple continues their usual button-lipped approach to marketing, loyal customers do not seem overly concerned about seeing the new features list in advance.
Despite the fact that the company still has yet to announce the release date, die-hard Apple lovers are lining up early - some estimating up to 18 days in advance to be sure they are the among the first to experience the new design and features first hand. Most expect the much anticipated device to be unveiled at a forthcoming event on September 9.
Recently, Apple sent out invitations that read, "9.9.2014 wish we could say more" to foreshadow the likely launch. If the iPhone6 release moves in lockstep with previous releases, the device should be available by the 19th.
