Long line begins forming outside of Fifth Avenue Apple Store [U]
<strong>[Updated with more recent picture]</strong> A long line has begun forming outside of Apple's flagship Fifth Avenue store in New York City, photos show. The people are <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294376==http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/09/19/line-grows-at-apples-flagship-fifth-ave-cube-in-anticipation-of-friday-launch-of-new-iphones" rel='nofollow'>queued</a> for tomorrow's launch of the iPhone 5s and 5c; while the Fifth Avenue store is normally open 24 hours a day, the new iPhones will only become available from Apple Stores at 8AM local time. Apple is expected to close the Fifth Avenue location for a few hours to prepare for tomorrow morning's rush.<br />
<br />
Lineups have traditionally formed outside of the outlet for every iPhone and iPad launch. The length of each line has sometimes been seen as a barometer of public interest, and media outlets regularly turn to Fifth Avenue partly for this reason. As a result, though, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294319==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/09/06/line.forms.before.new.devices.even.announced/" rel='nofollow'>businesses and other publicity-seeking groups</a> will get in line without having a genuine interest in buying iPhones.<br />
<br />
<em>Update: a user from Instagram, going by the handle "midnight917," has posted a picture of the line as it was at 12am Friday morning Eastern time (seen below).</em><br />
