    The Apple Store in Sydney, Australia, hosted the biggest iPhone launch in the country, with thousands of people lining up overnight to get their hands on the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C first.

    The front of the queue. Everyone ZDNet spoke to was waiting to purchase the iPhone 5S for themselves — there seemed to be no interest in the 5C — with the most commonly requested colour being gold. By 7.30am AEST, Apple had sold out of the gold 16GB 5S.

    The queue, hundreds of people long, stretched along several streets. One group of people waiting in line had travelled all the way from Brazil to purchase the iPhone in Sydney. Many developers present were eager to try the new processor combined with iOS 7, which was released yesterday after being reviewed by ZDNet last month.
