The iPhone 4S Is Out!
The wait for the new iPhone 4S is finally over, and many already have their hands on one. With the biggest pre-order sales Apple has ever seen, and many stores already selling out this morning, it’s bound to be Apple’s biggest launch yet.
In the spirit of the product launch, Steve Wozniak (the co-founder of Apple) hopped in line at his local Apple Store in California to pick up his own. Being the co-founder of Apple, he of course could get an iPhone pretty much any way he would want, but he says that he enjoys the buzz and excitement of waiting in line to get one.
As Wozniak got to the store he tweeted “The long wait begins. I’m first in line. The guy ahead was on the wrong side and he’s pissed”. This isn’t the first time that he’s done this, though. He has waited in line for Apple products for most of their launches, and has enjoyed meeting all of the Apple fans and signing their Apple devices.
On the other side of the country, in New York, a couple has waited outside the Apple Store for 17 DAYS. They’ve been recording their experiences through Twitter, and have survived the storms to lay claim to their “first in line” status. They even turned down $1,500 for their spot!
Did you wait in line to get your hands on an iPhone 4S? Do you have any good Apple Launch stories? Let me know in the comments! Maybe I’ll even add it to a post!
