The Australian flagship Apple Store in Sydney's CBD is one of the very first places in the world to get the new iPhones, and as per usual, iTWire was there to capture it all on video.
Apple's iPhone 6 launch was massive, and with Apple already breaking earnings records set during that time more than once since, iPhone X's Apple Store queues were "off the charts" long and thus far, a huge success.
As expected, the lines for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in Sydney were clearly shorter this year than for all the previous iPhones before it, with Apple’s true 2017 flagship still to arrive on 3 November.
The iPhone 7 has launched in Australia at last, and while there were no 7 Plus models in stores, buyers were still keen for Apple’s latest and greatest.
iPad 2 stocks are non-existent at the various stores we called earlier today, including an Apple Store, although we did learn that walk-ins at Apple Stores for iPad 2's will no longer be accepted - read on for details!
Apple's iPad 2 has gone in sale in 25 more countries, with queues reported in Sydney, Canada and the UK outside Apple Stores and some authorised resellers, but in Hong Kong you can buy one now, no waiting - at more than twice the price!
Apple's iPad 2 is well and truly out there in the marketplace, both in officially launched countries, and those relying on marked-up grey imports of the iPad 2, with the buying frenzies at Apple's stores capture on Twitter and online - but the queues will continue!
The iPad 2's 1am online ordering launch window must have seen massive traffic, for between 1 and 2am, it was impossible to place an order, with online ordering seemingly now working at 2.05am again.
With now less than 24 hours to go before the iPad 2 is officially available in Sydney, the iQueue line has grown from Alex Lee (or 'alexglee' on Twitter) yesterday, to 17 people in the line now, and presumably tons more to come tonight and tomorrow!
For all those hankering to get their hands on an iPad 2, may you get your wish tomorrow, but are all those waiting instead for an iPad 3 this year just crazy?
