Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
While wait times and availability have both improved this week, the staff's interest in concretely answering the question, "How long is the wait?" seems to be dwindling fast:
The Grove Apple Store: ALL MODELS IN STOCK, re: the lines, "It hasn't been that bad at all the last few days."
Beverly Center Apple Store: ALL MODELS IN STOCK, five minute wait "hopefully"
Pasadena Apple Store: ALL MODELS IN STOCK, thirty minute wait
3rd Street Promenade Apple Store: As of 8:09am, just rings and rings AGAIN!
Glendale Galleria Apple Store: ALL MODELS IN STOCK, 40 people in line for vouchers
Century City Apple Store: ALL MODELS IN STOCK, "We're not even quite open yet, so not sure about the line."
