The much-awaited Apple iPhone 15 series is ready to roll out in the country today. Dubai Mall had an electrifying energy as thousands of iPhone enthusiasts arrived early morning on Friday to collect their reserved gadgets.
The first few lucky customers were able to lay their hands on the brand new iPhone 15. The Apple enthusiasts, who have been waiting in the queue for hours, were allowed inside the store in a staggered entry process to avoid over crowding.
Many had reserved their iPhones in advance to be among the first to experience the latest technological marvel from Apple's online store.
In an attempt to get their hands on the coveted smartphone, residents have been queuing up at the Dubai Mall, at the biggest Apple store in the country. Dubai Mall authorities made extensive arrangements to ensure the safety and security of the crowd. Security personnel were deployed to manage the queues.
The accumulating crowd has been organised into long queues that snake down from the second floor to the ground floor of the mall. Take a look at some images and videos from the mall:
First customers walk in as store opens:
Ahmed Brimu, an Egyptian national, was among the very first few shoppers at the Apple store in Dubai Mall.
He arrived in Dubai a few days ago to pick up 11 iPhones which he had reserved on September 15.
"It took a long time for me to escape the queue and enter the store. It is all worth it now after getting my hands on the new device," said elated Brimu.
"I purchased for my family all these devices who are eagerly waiting for it. I am so happy that I could make it on the first day."
