Last month I bought a new iPhone as I do every other year. I decided to go with the bigger iPhone 6S Plus rather than the 6S which Tim Brookes checked out and loved. This time, however, I did something a little differently. Rather than buying from my carrier, I bought it straight from Apple themselves.

It’s a Friday afternoon and I’m outside an Apple Store next to a line of people that stretches out far enough that I can’t quite make out the end.
