Newest iPhones bring long lineups outside Apple stores

The newest versions of the iPhone hit stores this week and, as usual, people lined up outside the Apple Store in Downtown Vancouver early this morning to be among the first inside.

Many people waiting in line plan to flip the device for a profit; but all agree today’s release isn’t nearly as big as ones for earlier devices.

“It’s not as big as the iPhone 4, with the big change,” admit Apple fans.

“I think [the hype isn’t very big because of] the variety of phones out there and also the fact that there’s really not much of an innovation in the newest iPhone,” says another.

There aren’t as many new bells and whistles on the iPhone 5S and 5C. However, the 5S does have a fingerprint scanner, an upgraded camera, and a faster processor.
