Man Camps Outside Sydney Apple Store for ‘iPhone X’ [PIC]


Iphone line

One day ahead of the actual announcement itself, a man has camped outside the Sydney Apple Store for the upcoming new iPhone. Spotted by Luke Hopewell (via BGR), the man doesn’t know which phone he’s actually lining up for. And given that the new iPhone is released two weeks on average after the launch event, he could be waiting there for as much as 15 days.

Some analysts believe the flagship ‘iPhone X’ will only launch in October, and even then it might be a limited release at a handful of flagship stores at first. But if the ‘iPhone X’ does end up going on sale in two weeks, this man could be the first person in the world to lay hands on a retail model, since Australian users get the new iPhone first due to the time difference.

Do you plan on lining up outside the Apple Store to grab the ‘iPhone X’ before any pre-orders are delivered?

    Geez I dunno. I don’t think I’d be doing that. Last year 7 Pluses weren’t even available on launch day and from rumours of the X production delays I would say they won’t be available launch date. Its best to pre-order and in the meantime see if any reservation system is initiated for the X thereafter

    It would be nice to have a fb share button under this article.

  • Coming sooner than you think 🙂

    “the man doesn’t know which phone he’s actually lining up for” and he’s way too early and probably doesn’t know that either. I’m sure he’ll just go home when he finds out it’s probably weeks away. Meanwhile this somehow warrants international news coverage.

    How the heck does he have the time to wait outside a store for 2 weeks (may be more), not go into work and still be able to afford the dam phone. What am i doing wrong in life?

    Waiting in line for 2 weeks for hardware that will be outdated within a year when the iPhone XI arrives? Nope, not happening. Go home kid, relax, and reserve your device on the Apple website after announcement.

    He’s likely a hustler. Probably known to police as well. Just my thinking.

    FB? I refuse to get on Facebook.

    The dude is probably working for someone who has many overseas buyers.
