THE BRONX - The newest iPhones are officially on the market, and people lined up outside mobile stores throughout the borough for these latest Apple products.
The 5s and 5c went on sale in 11 countries today, including Canada, China, Australia and Japan. In China, where people could pre-order the devices starting on Tuesday, the gold models sold out before they even went on sale.
Bronx residents waited patiently outside AT&T at Bay Plaza for the store to open at 8 a.m. sharp. Some on line were disappointed with the limited choice of colors.
Several people played hooky from their jobs to get their hands on the newest iPhone. They say it was worth the wait and the day off from work.
The new phones have an upgraded camera and a faster processor.
The 5s in gold is back ordered in the U.S. until next month.
