Apple’s 7th generation iPhone, the iPhone 5s and the colorful iPhone 5c that were unveiled last week went on sale in Asia-Pacific region and Europe earlier today. They will also go on sale in U.S. and Canada shortly.
Not surprisingly, the launch of the new iPhones has been greeted with long lines around the world.
This year, Apple did not take pre-orders for its flagship iPhone due to possible supply constraints, so lines are expected to be a lot longer this year. We’re hearing reports 500-600 people outside some Apple retail stores.
Here’s a quick look at photos of people waiting for the iPhone 5s from around the world.
