iPhone 6s, 6s Plus Sydney launch: Photos

Hundreds of die-hard Apple fans lined up in the rain to obtain one of the new iPhones, launched on Friday morning -- though significantly less turned up than for the iPhone 6 launch.

Sydney Apple Store

The Apple Store in Sydney launched the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus on Friday morning, with hundreds lining up to get their hands on the new devices despite the dismal weather.

Pricing varies depending on whether customers buy it outright from Apple or go on a post-paid plan from one of the four major telecommunications carriers -- Telstra, Vodafone, Optus, and Virgin.

The line stretched from both sides of the Apple Store, with dozens of passersby also stopping to laugh and take photos.

While those waiting in line had umbrellas and ponchos to keep them dry, the Apple Store workers assisting them went without.

iPhone pride

One of the first to procure a new iPhone 6s made sure to parade it in front of those who were still queueing.

End of the line

The line, which last year stretched around several Sydney blocks, this time petered out on the corner of King and York Streets -- barely one block up from the Apple Store.

Parody becomes life

Parody becomes reality at an increasing rate nowadays -- with telepresence drones now able to wait in line instead of people.

On the top of this image are happy Apple consumers who are walking/rolling home with their new iPhone 6s.

At the bottom is a South Park episode.
