Apple’s brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be released at the company’s stores around the world, and there are already people lining up to get their hands on the newest phone device.

Anxious Apple fans were already seen lining up outside Pacific Centre on Granville Street during today’s morning rush hour, approximately 24 hours before sales are scheduled to begin. To camp the night and be in front of the line, prospective buyers brought with them chairs, tents, sleeping bags, blankets and layers of warm clothing.

By tomorrow morning, the line outside the store is expected to grow to several hundred people. During the 2013 launch of the iPhone 5s and 5c, Apple Store staff were seen handing out coffee and water for those who had lined up.

The new iPhone 6 comes in two different large sizes and comes with a full Retina HD display, slimmer design, faster processing chip, improved battery life, WiFi calling, and new camera features pertaining with a new sensor, image stabilization and time lapse capability.

In Canada, starting prices for the no contract/unlocked smartphones are $749 for the iPhone 6 and $859 for the iPhone 6 Plus.

The Pacific Centre Apple Store will be open at 8 a.m., two hours earlier than usual, for the much-anticipated sale launch.
