Seriously, Why Are These People Waiting in Line for the New iPhones?


4. The iPhone isn't available yet in their countries.
The iPhone 5s and 5c will launch today in the United States and eight other countries, including the U.K., France, Germany, China and Japan. But other countries have to wait until the end of the year to get Apple's latest phone.

Some people come to the United States to buy the iPhones and then bring them back to their home country just to get an early lead. "We can't buy the phone in Turkey yet and we don't want to miss getting it here," Hazal Erengul said. "And we are just crazy."

"I feel a responsibility to be out here and show my support."

5. They just really love the iPhone and Apple.
And for some it's as simple as that. They are a little bit crazy and they just really, really love Apple.

Yes, for some, it's just the love of a company that can keep them on the streets for more than 24 hours. "I have been a loyal Apple customer for awhile," Arton Dokic said.

"Recently, there haven't been major improvements in the iPhones, but I feel a responsibility to be out here and show my support because I really think Apple is the greatest company ever," he added.

Dokic, ABC News confirmed, does not work for Apple.
