Normally stories about lines outside Apple stores precede the launch of a new iPhone, but over in New York, the lines have showed no sign of abating since the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus a few weeks ago. Analyst Walter Piecyk captured a shot of the line snaking around the company's famed cubed retail outlet on Fifth Avenue this morning (via Cult of Mac), and it could easily be mistaken for a photo from September.
Asian resellers are usually thought to be the force behind such lines so long after Apple's product launches, but that's seemingly not a factor this late in the year, particularly since the iPhone officially launched in much of Asia this morning. Such imagery seems to prove that bigger phones were what the market wanted, after all.
Of course, we don't actually know how many iPhone 6 units Apple has sold this far, but that'll likely change once the Cupertino company holds its quarterly earnings call on Monday. The numbers could be huge. Apple initially launched the iPhone 6 to 32 countries within the first couple of weeks after its announcement, and it extended that number to an impressive 36 more countries earlier this month.
