The new iPhone 5S and 5C officially went on sale Friday at Apple retailers around the country. Line members say the fingerprint sensor, faster processor, and keeping up with the Joneses brought them out to the Apple store for the seventh generation of iPhones.
Apple’s first two-device iPhone rollout has created buzz around the world, offering a cheaper alternative (the 5C) and a top-of-the-line phone (the 5S). Though the 5C was available for pre-order, the 5S has to be bought in-store or online, prompting characteristically long lines at Apple stores around the country.
Take, for example, the many lined up outside of the Apple Store in Boston. Their take on the new iPhones? Classy colors, speedy processing, and staying on top of the most recent technology motivated their hours, even days, of waiting.
