I bought an iPhone 12 in person at the Apple Store – here’s how different it felt Apple Store

I finally have an iPhone 12 in hand, but I’ve never experienced an Apple Store launch spectacle quite like this, and I’ve been covering these long lines for TechRadar – ever since the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 launch lines.

Gone are the Apple diehards willing to wait two days (sometimes more) in a line that would eventually snake around an entire New York City block. And gone are the old media that ask the same silly questions: “What time did you get here? All this for a phone?”
