"Everyone is just crazy for the iPhone"
Apple’s latest phones—the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s—hit retail shelves on Friday. And at Apple Stores in 10 countries around the world, people lined up in anticipation of doors opening at 8 a.m. local time so they could get their hands on the new models, just as they had for previous iPhone launches.
