NASHUA- Thinking about getting the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus in New Hampshire on the release day Friday? If you're in New Hampshire you're out of luck unless you've already made a reservation.
New Hampshire is one of three states under a new ban by Apple. They've moved to ban walk-in purchases of the new releases in states where there is no sales tax.
The Boston Globe reports, this new rule could be a move by the company to address the changes seen in recent years. In the last few releases, the long lines outside the stores often feature homeless people recruited by brokers, sometimes known as "sharks", who pay people to wait in line and buy phones for them to turn around and sell for a huge profit.
In New Hampshire you have to make a reservation to get the new model. Apple is only taking reservations starting Saturday morning, a full day after it's released.
Some say they'll pay sales tax in Massachusetts just to get the phone on the first day.
The new iPhone retails for $649. Tax in Massachusetts, Maine, or Vermont could run you up to $40 extra.
Apple has not said how long this ban will be in place.
