IT reviewer, David Rahimi, from California, was the first person to get the new iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus when the doors opened at 8am at Apple's Sydney city store in George St.

A long queue was ready to pounce and ARN's Nermin Bajric and PC World's Tony Ibrahim, were there to capture all the action.

Amidst the queue were people representing some of the 200-plus Australians who hired somebody to stand in line for them ahead of the launch.

The time-challenged Apple fanatics used task outsourcing app, Airtasker, to find somebody willing to pull up some pavement for a lengthy period for a nominated fee.

As of 5pm on Thursday, 215 taskmasters had set an iPhone queue task at an average price of $163.

Rahimi's girlfriend, Jasmine Juan, also bought both phones.
