Today is the big day, when all the Apple zombies who have lined up, waiting for a week to get their hands on the latest gadget will finally touch, hopefully, the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
A free update to Apple’s iOS software for existing mobile devices became available Wednesday. The new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which come out today, will come with the iOS 8.
Apple is saying iOS 8 to is its biggest update since the app store introduction in 2008. iOS 8 will let devices work better in sync: like starting a message on an iPhone and finishing it on an iPad.
The new iOS software will also let people do more things without having to switch app to app. For example, if a text message comes in as you’re writing an email, you’ll be able to pull down the text from the top of the screen and send a reply, all while staying in the email app.
Hundreds of people are lining up at the Eaton Centre and Square One in hopes of getting their hands on the latest iPhones.
There are at least 500 people in line at both malls. Some have been camped out since Monday.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus officially went on sale at 8am.

There are thousands waiting to get their hands on the iPhone 6 this morning. Some have been waiting in line for a week just to be the first to own one. Is there anything you would ever wait in a line like this for? Are these people just ridiculous for waiting?
