Release of every new model of iPhone now is supposed to be a huge event, but who would even think that the first buyer can be some sort of an equal to the first man landed on the Moon and would be welcomed with applauses like an astronaut. The customers in their eager to have a new model of the smartphone are ready to stand in lines for days at the Apple Stores’ gates almost in each country where the stores are deployed. Of course, somebody could order iPhone online and have it delivered, or reserve it for an in-store pickup at a convenient time. But for devoted Apple fans, tradition is tradition.
Muhannad Al Nadaf is the name of this first name. Muhannad, who is 21, was the first in Sydney to get an iPhone. It was a big day for him. The Apple Store opens at 8 a.m., and Al Nadaf got his spot in line at 3 a.m. He got an iPhone 11 Pro Max in space gray.
About 100 people lined up at the Apple Store in the heart of Sydney's central business district. For those in line, there's a huge amount of fanfare around buying a new phone, with Apple Store employees giving buyers a round of applause as they flood in at 8 a.m. when the doors open.
In New York the first iPhone 11 owner is 24-year-old Ryan Romero. A mob of Apple employees surrounded him, cheering and posing and at one point hoisting Romero on their shoulders. Romero lined up Thursday at 6 p.m. ET, flying into New York from Las Vegas during a break between marathons to buy his phone.
