Apple’s new lineup of iPhones went on sale Friday, and yes, there are still massive lines snaking outside the Apple Stores around the world.

Lines gathered to buy the latest iPhones outside of stores in New York, Sydney, Berlin and London, among dozens of others, according to CNBC.

Apple CEO Tim Cook greeted fans outside of the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in New York, which had been undergoing reconstruction. The store officially reopened at 6 a.m. MT after two years of renovations.

Photos of the long lines outside of other cities made their way to social media, showing widespread excitement for the next edition of the iPhone.

The excitement over the new iPhone is a bit surprising given that there aren’t too many upgrades to the device. And a survey from WalletHub found that 28% less people are planning to buy a new iPhone compared to last year.

A separate poll from Pollfish found that 60% of their respondents were excited to upgrade iPhone 11, according to Forbes.
