Hundreds queue for iPhone XS and XS Max in Singapore a day ahead of launch

SINGAPORE – It is a day before the launch of the latest iPhones at 9am on Friday (Sept 21), but by noon on Thursday, a queue of roughly 250 people had already formed in front of the Apple store in Orchard Road.

At 11am, consumers hoping to get their hands on the iPhone XS and XS Max were ushered into barricades set up outside the store.

Each person, who can buy only up to two phones, was given a wristband which allows them to leave the queue and return within 30 minutes to retain their spot in the queue.
