People line up for new iPhones

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Apple released its latest versions of the iPhone, drawing hundreds to stores across the country.

Both the iPhone 5C and 5S went on sale Friday and people lined up at the Apple store in Germantown. 

As the line got longer and longer, the story had fresh coffee and umbrellas ready.

Birthday girl Dyani Strong turned 13 years old and all of her friends wished her "happy birthday" on her new iPhone.  She said she loved the new phone, especially with iOS 7 and the fingerprint lock. 

For some, it was not their first iPhone, it was more about getting an upgrade. 

Joyce Roberts from Olive Branch, Mississippi, said she was happy to upgrade from her iPhone 4.

There are about 12 stores in the Memphis area selling the new iPhones. 

The Apple store at Shops of Saddle Creek said they will sell the new iPhone until 8 p.m. on Friday. 

Then they will start selling them again at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning.
