Queues At Apple Stores Get Longer

The queues outside Apple stores around the world are growing as fans line up to be the first to own the new smartphones.
People with prime spots outside these shops could also earn money for being so keen - with one place in New York already being sold for $2,500 (£1,500).

  • People are waiting outside Apple stores in London, Sydney and Tokyo
  • Some people set up camp around Apple's major stores weeks ago
  • Many are genuine fans who want to first to own the new handsets
  • But others say hope to sell their place in the queue for over £1,000
  • Apple launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last week in two sizes
  • They go on sale tomorrow but can already be per-ordered online
  • Apple Watch was unveiled last week, but won't go on sale until 2015
