The iPhone 5s will go on sale September 20th.  Pricing starts at $199 on contract, which will fetch you 16GB storage in your choice of space gray, white or gold colorways.  As always, folks will line up the day of, or days before the iPhone 5s goes on sale such that they can be the first to receive the newly announced handset.  But honestly, you don’t have to.

Option 1: Wait

More often than not Apple stores will have a line that can span hundreds of people the day the new iPhone goes on sale.  Now, if you need to show off to your friends, then have it, stand in that line and get your iPhone 5s the day it goes on sale.  Or, if you’re smart, you can go back the next day, get a reservation ticket, and probably walk in to an Apple store and purchase the iPhone 5s in less than 15 minutes.  Yup, it’s that simple.

Option 2: Task Rabbit

Or, if you’re the out sourcing type, you can hire a Task Rabbit.  A Task Rabbit, for a nominal fee no less, will stand in line for you at your local Apple store.  When they reach the front of the line, they’ll call leaving you just enough time to take their place and by your new iPhone 5s.  Just keep in mind that while this option is the “easiest” you’ll still need to spend the money on the Task Rabbit and go through the process of assigning someone to the task.
