The new iPhone – level 3
Apple’s latest iPhone models have hit stores across the globe, kicking off an expected global sales boom.
Thousands of fans in the world’s capitals queued up overnight to get their hands on the latest gadgets as soon as doors opened. Many endured sleepless nights and bad weather, but it was all worth it in the end.
“My boss at work suggested me I take one of their robots down and use it to, use it to stand in my place so I can carry on with everyday tasks.”
“I’m really excited. I’m really a big fan of the iPhone and they have the strongest, their claiming to have the strongest screen, so I guess that’s another reason why I’m excited.”
“I like to be the first to have it so… I just wanna have it now! I guess it’s a bit just selfish as I want to have it now, so I just wait in line and get it now!”
“We make YouTube videos, and you know, a big thing is the new iPhone… So we’re like, well, why not be the first ones to get it? And we travelled here!”
After a dramatic redesign last year in which the company enlarged the iPhone’s screen and added mobile payments, the latest versions boast more modest improvements. The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus feature improved cameras and 3D touch, a display technology that responds according to how hard users press their screens.
Apple claims demand for the smartphones could surpass the record-breaking sales of the iPhone 6 last year. Analysts expect 12 to 13 million phones to fly off the shelves in the first weekend.
Difficult words: gadget (a cool new piece of technology), endure (to suffer through something), claim (to say), screen (a display), boast (to have, to feature), feature (to have), surpass (be greater than), fly off the shelves (to sell quickly).
