Happy iPhone 6s Day, Apple fans. With each new iPhone launch, there are certain things that go without saying. The most obvious — and, perhaps, most curious — is the annual tradition where millions of people around the world line up for hours on end to be among the first to purchase Apple’s latest and greatest iPhone. Sure, they could have just preordered a new iPhone for delivery, but they seemingly love the shared experience of standing around and waiting for a shiny new iPhone.

Do you feel like you might be missing out by not lining up? Or perhaps you just want to witness this curious tradition without actually having to brave the crowds (though the lines are clearly much shorter this year thanks to that extended preorder period)? Whatever the case, we’ve embedded a bunch of videos below that show various iPhone 6s lines outside of Apple Stores around the world. Enjoy.
