It's that time again: the release of the new iPhone. Cue the long queue. iPhone users swarmed Lubbock stores Friday morning and throughout the rest of the day to get their hands on the newest smart phone, the iPhone 5s.
Lines were out the door when Best Buy opened and the wait was still plenty long through the afternoon. It is worth the "release day wait" for some people, even if they were not prepared for the long lines, like Brian Willcutt, who went to buy his new phone on release day.
"I guess given that it's release day, it's not too surprising I guess. Being the first one with the new thing or being on the cutting edge or whatever," he said.
Some people were not given the chance to be on the cutting edge, some versions of the new phones sold out. But people were allowed to pre-order to get their new phone from the next batch.
