'The people that are considered the die-hard fans are more than likely, I suspect, to wait for the iPhone X in November, ' he said.

We have already seen what the new Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus will like but there are still a lot of details that Apple has not announce like the battery size.

The store opened its doors at 8 a.m. Friday, local media reported, and ushered in a few fans who had camped out, along with others who woke up early. The unique "iPhone for Life" program introduced a year ago for the first time in UAE will make it easier to upgrade to the new iPhones.

If you head over to Apple's online store now, you can probably get yourself the brand new iPhone 8 within a week, which is another reason not so many people will be queuing up overnight for the new phones.


"There aren't too many new features to this one", Kourouche told Reuters. "I wouldn't mind waiting for days [at a shop] for the X, though". "So I think I must change with no hesitation", said 29-year-old consumer Ta Na in Shanghai.

The iPhone 8 retails for $1,148 (64GB) and $1,388 (256GB), while the iPhone 8 Plus retails for $1,308 (64GB) and $1,548 (256GB).

The iPhone 8 will only cater to those who want a new version but do not want to pay a hefty $999 for the iPhone X, said iTWire.com's technology editor Alex Zaharov-Reutt, who did not line up for the launch. The world's most popular camera gets even better and wireless charging brings a powerful new capability to iPhone. iPhone 8 Plus features dual 12-megapixel cameras and introduces Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, bringing dramatic studio lighting effects to iPhone, allowing customers to capture stunning portraits with a shallow depth of field effect in five different lighting styles.

The iPhone X is a glass and stainless steel device with an edge-to-edge display that Chief Executive Tim Cook has called "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone".
