THIS Is Who Camps Out In Line For An iPhone

If there’s one thing you can bet on, it’s that an Apple release day transforms the city into an urban campground with hoards of gadget-hungry folks chomping at the bit — lined up and staked out for days (yes, days!).
And, with the iPhone 5C and 5S making their big debut today, we thought we'd stalk the lines to get the 4-1-1, straight from the tech-obsessed early-risers themselves. What phone did they score? How long was the wait? We had our S.F. and NYC shutterbugs brave the crowds and get the lowdown from the folks on each coast. So, click away, and see which city houses the most die-hard Apple shoppers — S.F. or NYC? Hey, there's nothing wrong with a little friendly competition!
