Fans anxiously line up for launch of new iPhones

Posted: Updated:

There were lines across the country awaiting the arrival of the newest iPhone.

The iPhone 5c and 5s hit store shelves on Friday.

The first person in line at the AT&T store on Burkhardt Rd in Evansville showed up Thursday night at 10:00.

The line might have looked long, but customers said it was moving quickly Friday morning.

Most of them arrived early in the morning to be the first ones to get their hands on the newest iPhone.

Some seemed a little camera shy, saying they called in sick to work just to be among the first with the newest technology.

Some decided that it was worth it to camp out the night before.

"It's been a lot of fun," said Hanna Williams. "We've had snacks, we've interacted with other people and everybody just seems really excited about getting the new phone."

If you weren't able to get the new iPhone on Friday, officials say you can still pre-order them. They say they will come in the mail in the next three to five business days.
