How big is your iQueue? #iphone5s


The Apple season is upon us, yet again. London’s streets got raided by eager iFans, prepared to queue for hours just to get their hands on the latest, not very different iPhone. 

If you’re lucky enough to cross the finish line before a fat SOLD OUT sign appears at your local Apple stores entrance, you’ll be enjoying the following features: 

  • 4.0 inch LED-backlit IPS LCD, capacitive touchscreen (640 x 1136 pixels)

  • 8 MP (3264 x 2448 pixels) back camera with autofocus and 1.2 MP front camera

  • iOS 7

  • Accelerometer, gyro, proximity and compass sensors

  • Music play up to 40 hours

Oh hold on, these are all iPhone 5 stats! 

All joking aside, the iPhone 5S does have a fingerprint sensor, an A7 chip and Dual-core 1.7 GHz CPU as opposed to an A6/1.3 GHz, and a new champagne colour, but is it worth the days of queuing?

If you’ve managed to get one, please let us know on Twitter @BeaFirebrand, until then check out the footage of what we call the iQueue near Regent Street.
