Area Residents Line Up for Newest iPhone
Long lines are expected Friday morning as customers await the opportunity to purchase the newest iPhone.
Apple released the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C Friday to customers across the nation. And the line over at the AT&T store in Tulsa Hills was just as long.
Initially, the new phones are available in the U.S., Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
Some of the newest features include a fingerprint sensor and the new addition of a gold iPhone. Additionally, the iPhone 5C is priced at $99.
A barrage of reviews arrived this week, ahead of Apple's release of two new iPhones and redesigned software for mobile gadgets. Here's a sampling of what tech reporters, columnists and bloggers are saying:
On the iPhone 5C and 5S:
- Walt Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal: "If you are an iPhone fan with any model older than the iPhone 5, the new 5S will be a big step up. If you own an iPhone 5, there's less of a case for upgrading, unless you want the fingerprint reader and improved camera."
- David Pogue, The New York Times: "(The) speed of innovation seems to be slowing down, but don't let that depress you. Focus instead on the silver lining: you can keep your current phone longer without feeling obsolete quite so soon."
