Apple iPhone 8 And 8 Plus Now Available

At the front of the line were Abdelsalam Amailef, Mazen Kourouche and Rami Dandachi, all in their late teens, who pitched their tents outside the George Street store 10 days ago, making it one of the longest times Apple fans have waited in Sydney to be first for a new iPhone.

Only those who placed orders and made successful reservations online last week were able to collect an iPhone 8 handset in an Apple store on Friday, according to an Apple staff, adding that all other new products including the new Apple Watch, could be bought in the store right away. Subscription to the "iPhone for life program" is also available for all new customers purchasing the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices on 18 and 24 month Smart pay offer. The unique "iPhone for Life" program introduced past year for the first time in UAE will make it easier to upgrade to the new iPhones. Fully charged this will deliver 6.96Wh of energy, down from 7.45Wh with the 1,960mAh iPhone 7 battery, and little more than half of the 11.55Wh offered by the 3,000mAh Samsung Galaxy S8 battery.

Many customers in the store were trying to the test the new models instead of committing to buy.

But traditional queues outside the technology giant's flagship retail stores may be smaller than usual, with a third new device, the ultra premium iPhone X, still to be released later in the year.

He said he flew in from India specially to buy an iPhone 8 Plus for his daughter as a wedding gift.

Australians may have started to line up for the new iPhones before the keynote, but after the announcement that put a massive focus on iPhone X, the country isn't feeling too fuzzy about the already-neglected iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
