Excitement builds around Apple's iPhone 6


BECKLEY, WV (WVVA) Nearly a dozen people wait outside the AT&T store in Beckley for the latest 'must have' gadget from Apple Inc.

Customers began lining up around 6 a.m. Friday to purchase the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The doors opened at 8 a.m.

Huge lines formed in cities across the Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan and U.S. for the larger phones-some camping out for days to be one of the first to own the new device. Apple CEO Tim Cook calls the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus the best iPhones" the company has ever produced. The iPhone 6 Plus is 5.5 inches diagonally and the iPhone 6 is 4.7 inches, compared to the iPhone 5S size of 4 inches. The phones are thinner than ever: 6.9 mm for the iPhone 6 and 7.1 mm for the larger iPhone 6 Plus.

Will Apple be able to keep up with demand? More than 4 million units were sold during the first 24 hours of pre-orders.
