CNET News Video: Meet the first person to buy the new iPhone 5S in stores

1:30 /

The line wrapped around the block at the Apple store in Sydney, according to CNET Australia's Seamus Byrne, who joined the crowd hours before the doors opened at 8 a.m. local time. Buyers are restricted to buying two iPhone 5S and 10 iPhone 5C. For this first rollout, both phones are going on sale in 11 countries, including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the UK, and US.

-So what time did you get here? -Mid-day yesterday. -Yes. -Yes. -And what is it about iPhone 5S for you? -For me I'd really like the slow motion video capture features and there's 20 frames per second. -How many times have you come out of here before? -This is actually my second time. The first time was last year around this time and I wasn't at the front. I was really 20 something at the back. -So how does it feel to be basically first in the world? -It's certainly a different experience, but since this is my second time I have more preparations, but I still enjoy the experience, you know, meeting people and then it's like physically and mental-- you have to be strong because people yell at you but some people say good luck, you know, both and then the weather as well. It's really cold last night, 6 degrees. -Do you think you'll be out here again next year? -Maybe for the iPad 5, but not at the front. I'll be hiding somewhere. -Cool. Thank you. -Thanks. -Thank you.
