IN THE PHILIPPINES, THOUSANDS ALREADY LINING UP FOR THE iPHONE 6

imageMakati City, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – It hasn’t been quite 48 hours since Apple unveiled the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but already, thousands of Filipinos are lining up to be among the first to own this state-of-the-art mobile phone.

Online orders won’t commence until one minute past midnight on Friday, September 12 while Apple stores won’t strart selling the new phones until September 19.

Two authorized Apple dealers along Ayala Avenue in Makati City have announced that they will have the new phones in stock by September 20. Incidentally, Makati City has recently been named ‘Selfie Capital of the World,’ a title that Filipinos take great pride in.

As of six o’clock this morning, Filipinos have lined up, four-person deep, outside the Apple stores. The lines have extended for miles and miles, all the way to the MRT (Metro Manila’s light railway system) station in Quezon City. To get to the Apple stores in Makati from Quezon City, commuters have to take the MRT train at the Northernmost EDSA (Epifanio de los Santos Avenue) station in Quezon City. It’s about 13 kilometers or approximately 8 miles, not including the distance between the Makati EDSA MRT station and the Apple Stores on Ayala Avenue.

The people lining up to buy the new iPhones have only tripled the already long lines of daily commuters trying to get to work or school via the MRT.

It’s really more fun in the Philippines.
