Can Apple’s new iPhones still draw a crowd? The answer, of course, is a resounding yes. We have all seen photos and video footage of the lines at Apple Stores in New York City and a few other major U.S. cities, but America isn’t the only country with iPhone fever. Fortune put together a nice little compilation of iPhone lines around the world, from London and Sydney to Paris and Munich. Millions of people around the globe are out hunting down new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c handsets on launch day, and with supply so severely constrained according to our sources, there are inevitably going to be some angry Apple fans out there who aren’t able to buy a new iPhone despite having waited on one of those ridiculously long lines. While they’re out drowning their sorrows in Candy Crush Saga on last year’s iPhone model, sit back and enjoy a couple of iPhone line videos from around the world. The rest can be seen on Fortune’s site, which is linked below in our source section.
