Excited iPhone fans – level 3
Even though there’s still more than a week to go until its official release in Japan, iPhone fans have lined the streets outside the Apple store in Tokyo.
About a dozen die-hard fans are hoping to be among the first in Japan to get their hands on the new iPhone 6, which was announced earlier this week.
Fans rolled out their sleeping bags, set up chairs and parasols and some even had replica iPhones in preparation for the long wait in Ginza street.
“It’s a chance for us iPhone fans to get together once a year and say hello to each other. It’s like a street festival.”
In addition to the new phone, Apple also unveiled their first ever watch, and a mobile payment system.
Difficult words: die-hard (very serious), announce (introduce), parasol (light umbrella which gives shade from the sun), unveil (show or announce publicly for the first time).
