The same began on Thursday and all online visitors were allotted with specific slots to pick up their devices.

However, it was quite difficult for all those Apple observers in China to believe this. What noticed during the last time launch of Apple iPad was snaking lines, with fans waiting overnight to get the product. There was mess all around and even some customers brawled with the employees, due to which managers were forced to shut the doors.
As told by Sun Xufei, an IT worker who was the first in line of about 20 people waiting outside the Shanghai Lujiazui Apple store to Reuters, "I'm very surprised that there is no line. I thought there was going be a long line so I came over a bit earlier to pick it up".
With the help of this online reservation system, Apple hopes to avoid the rebellious crowds in China. Friday sales were calm and quite.
