Ahead of its launch let us have a look at how people are trying hard to get this iPhone 6. To our utter surprise consumers are preparing themselves for this inevitable iPhone 6 release by starting to line up in front of Apple’s subterranean flagship store on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue.
Its diehard fans have already started to camp out on New York City streets for weeks ahead just to get their piece of Apple’s newest gadget. It simply means in spite of waiting up there for weeks there is no surety that you can get your favorite iPhone.
Many people waiting there in queue are being sponsored by companies who are paying for their iPhones and letting them work from line. Some people are trying to convince others standing first in the queue to buy iphone6 for them so that they can resell them at higher prices for their own benefit.
