People are already lining up for Apple’s next iteration of iPhone devices in Sydney, Australia, even though the company hasn’t made its announcement yet, according to ZDNet journalist Luke Hopewell.
It’s a somewhat optimistic decision, considering it’s unlikely Apple’s new iPhones will be released tomorrow, or even this week — last year, the iPhone 7 was released the week after its unveiling. Still, it may be the only way to get guarantee obtaining an iPhone X.

On top of that, Apple’s devices have a tendency to sell out. Last year it took less than a week before the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were sold out worldwide, and the 6s and 6s Plus didn’t fare much better.
The rumoured iPhone X will reportedly ditch the fingerprint sensor in favour of new technology called ‘Face ID.’ It’s also set to feature new emoji dubbed ‘the Animoji’ and include an updated status bar.
