The Apple Frenzy
Customers wait in line during the sales launch for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at the Apple Inc. store in New York and Palo Alto, California, U.S., on Sept. 19, 2014.
The devices went on sale today in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, France, Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. Shoppers in New York and San Francisco had already formed lines in the past two days to be among the first to buy the gadgets.
At Apple’s store on Fifth Avenue in New York, police officers put up barricades as the line stretched more than 10 blocks and the crowd cheered continuously for the 15 minutes before the phones officially went on sale.
