Apple fanatics started lining up Thursday at Apple stores across the state, anxiously awaiting the release of the new iPhone X.
News 12’s Lauren Fabrizi visited Greenwich’s Apple store Friday morning to see close to 100 people lined up outside of the store.
Some say they waited in line since 5 p.m. the day before.
Fabrizi reports that the new iPhone X features faster processing, a larger screen and face recognition that replaces the home button – for a starting price of $1,000.
With such high demand, analysts say it could take five to six weeks for customers to receive their pre-ordered phones.
Pre-ordered supplies sold out within 15 minutes in the U.S. last week.
Forbes reports that Apple stock reached a record high following the launch.
News 12 is told that around 80 million iPhones are expected to be sold this quarter.
Employees at the Apple store in Greenwich did not confirm how many iPhones were on hand for in-store purchasing the day of the launch.
