iPhone X Goes On Sale, Bringing Out Apple Super Fans

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s the day Apple fans around the world have been waiting for, the highly anticipated launch of the iPhone X.

Rick Spence of Lansdale was one of a few dozen people who camped out overnight outside of the Apple Store in Ardmore’s Suburban Square. For an Apple fanatic like himself, it’s a tradition.

“Really just being a part of the community, the Apple community,” he said. “It’s not just about buying tech, about buying the computers. It’s about family and the community that makes great devices.”

The $1,000 phone is a complete design overhaul for Apple. Fans say features such as Face ID and a larger, more vibrant screen make it well worth the hefty price tag.

“I’d say it’s the biggest redesign since the original iPhone,” said Max Morrison of Lewisburg. “It’s just fitting because it’s the 10th anniversary iPhone. So I figured it’s worth the wait.”

Waiting overnight wasn’t necessary to get a phone, but many people did it for the experience.

“It’s not just about the phone, it’s about the company we have here, we get to meet a bunch of like-minded people who are interested in the same things,” said Dean Berryman, who camped outside the Center City Apple Store.
