With the iPhone 6 release date at least 7 months away the thought of queuing up so early for one seems absurd, we even struggle to understand why people would queue up weeks in advance for one either. It’s for this reason why we are baffled why one Japanese blogger has already taken the decision to line up outside an Apple Store in order to be one of the first to get hold of the 8th-generation iPhone.
iPhone 6 eagerness — Whenever Apple announce the release date for a new iPhone, fans seem to act a little crazy and start to queue outside stores. Since most rumors would suggest a September release for the iPhone 6, Yoppy, which you can see in the image above has donned a silly costume and believes that he will finally be able to go the distance this time, as reported by RocketNews 24.
Queuing for 7 months will be a test on his resolve because he has tried this before, although he failed in his quest to be first in line. Let’s hope that he has planned things this time and has enough supplies on him.
We know that he is mad for even doing something like this, although we do have to admire him and it does make for an interesting story. It will be interesting to see how accommodating the Apple Store staff are towards him, although we have to wonder how long it will be before he is moved on by police?
No doubt some people will see this and say that Yoppy will do anything just to seek a bit of attention, and they might be right. Having said that, if he is not hurting anyone, then what does it really matter?
Will he be able to go the distance, or will he give up once media attention dies down?
It does seem a bit presumptuous to queue for something when nothing official is known such as the iPhone 6 specs, although we do know that we should not expect a phablet sized iPhone. Rumors seem to suggest a 5-inch device, though it’s not certain if they will stick with Touch ID.
