Apple Fans Line Up For Most Expensive iPhone Yet

CENTURY CITY (CBSLA) — Even with the price of the newest iPhone being released Friday now well over $1,000, some die-hard fans still camped out overnight to get their hands on the device first.

iPhone fans began lining up outside the Apple Store at Westfield Century City at 2 p.m. Thursday in anticipation of the phone's debut Friday. People also lined up outside the Pasadena store. Both stores opens at 8 a.m.

The iPhone XR, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max come with more powerful cameras and more battery time, but the most notable feature about the new phones are the heftier price tags.

The iPhone XR starts at $749, up $50 from last year's $699 for the iPhone 8. Users hoping to upgrade to iPhone XS Max will have to shell out at least $1,099.

Most customers ordering the new iPhone did so online, but there are reports that shipments were being delayed to Monday.
