BATON ROUGE, LA (FOX44) — "Yeah, iPhone 5 baby!!"
People waited in long lines early Friday morning outside of the Apple Store at the Mall of Louisiana to get their hands on the latest Apple gadget, the iPhone 5. And they were asking themselves the same question you might be.
"Why am i getting up to get this iPhone 5?
And there were as many different answers to that question as there were people in line.
"It's the Apple community. They just have a brand where it locks you in."
"It's a new toy, new toy, new thing to play with. I love it."
"I guess it's just that emblem up there. It's got something magical."
But what makes the iPhone 5 unique?
There are a couple slight differences between the 4s and the 5. Not only is the 4s a little thicker than the five, the 5 is about half an inch taller. But that's not the reason people came out to the Apple store at midnight to get their newest iPhone.
"Faster, quicker, better speed, better color, better graphics."
But before they can master all of these new features on the phone, they might need a little help from their little ones at home
"She can work our IPhones and our iPads and our Mac at home easier than anyone else in the house. So, she teaches you how to use it? Sometimes she's three.
But whether you're three or 103 to the people who waited in line for hours. September 21 felt more like December 25.
"It's just like Christmas."
