Hundreds Line Up for Apple’s iPhone X Launch in Sydney

Share:

Hundreds of fans lined up outside the Apple Retail Store in Sydney early Friday morning to be the first in the world to get their hands on an iPhone X.

Approximately 400 people lined up outside Apple’s flagship store in Australia to pay A$1,579 for the 10th-anniversary iPhone. Bishoy Behman, the first person in line, told Reuters:

“It’s beautiful bro, what a feeling, I’m excited.”

However, Behman does not plan to keep the devices. He plans to sell them off for approximately A$3000 each, saying:

“I’m here for the profit, of course, it’s business.”

Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted about the launch:

The company’s retail store in Sydney opened its doors moments after Apple’s quarterly earnings call. During the earnings call, Apple forecasted that its revenue for the holiday quarter would be above market expectations.

Apple also said that the pre-orders for the iPhone X show demand that is “off the charts”.

The turnaround for this launch was huge compared to the lacklustre launches for the past two years. Are you lining up at your local Apple Store on Friday morning? Let us know in the comments below!

    I hope to walk in and get one tomorrow at 8. Not sure what time to show up 4am? Ugh fml good thing I am off tomorrow.

  • Times have dropped for the iPhone X on Apple’s website. Now new orders say 3-4 weeks instead of 5-6. Perhaps things are moving along better than they thought. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5d2b3b6889cfe3304ae87fbd64a9d612094f21498bfda37efbd0dc91a0e1d7f2.png

    Nice! I’m going back and forth on the colour. Next week I have to go to the store so I’m going to check them both out and decide. Ironically I’m going to put it in a case so it won’t really matter anyway!

    Definitely will need to be there a bit early I’d say. Seems like days of old; lines are already forming. Last report I read on Twitter they estimated close to 100 people at the Toronto Eaton Centre, and that’s as of 11:00pm. The store doesn’t even open for another 9 hours.

    I always liked the look of the white iPhones, but never got one because the white front bezels were too distracting when watching video. Now that the front bezels are black, I’m very excited to finally get a white (silver) iPhone. 🙂
