Apple iPhone 8
Visit the Apple Store spontaneously on Saturday evening
23.09.2017: Half an hour before closing I visit the Apple Store in Frankfurt am Main. I can not wait to hold the new iPhone models iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in my hands and check the colours. Unfortunately my favorite versions (256GB, Space Grey) are not available for purchase today.
Later at home I decide to buy the iPhone 8 with 256 GB memory in the colour Space Grey and of course I need a new leather sleeve for it. I order a custom tailored nappa leather sleeve with integrated MicroFibre lining with the dimensions 140 x 68 x 7.5 mm at the German fitBAG online shop.
Finally! The iPhone 8 with 256GB in the colour Space Grey is available
28.09.2017: Since last Monday I checked the availability twice daily online at apple.de for a pickup at the Apple Store Frankfurt. At 14:30 it's finally time! The iPhone 8 is available in the colour Space Grey with 256 GB memory! I order it immediately with pickup at the Apple store and get a confirmation by e-mail.
At 14:41, Apple sends me a notification via e-mail that my iPhone can be picked up.
At 18:50 I arrive at the Apple Store and ten minutes later I leave it with my new iPhone 8.

30.09.2017: I get my black nappa leather sleeve from fitBAG. The iPhone 8 slips nearly perfect into the leather sleeve, but it is a little bit tight.
So I order a second one with the dimensions 145 x 70 x 7.5 mm at fitBAG. So it will slide more comfortably into the pocket. The first ordered sleeve is reserve, I can use it also for an older smartphone.
