A picture of Apple fans queuing outside the technology giant's Covent Garden store today waiting to buy the new iPhone 6 has sparked an unexpected online row.

The Independent's report is headlined "There is literally not a single woman in this iPhone 6 queue", but Rhiannon Williams, the Telegraph's technology reporter, says that claim is "untrue".

She tweeted:

The story does acknowledge that there were some women in the queue, but it is certainly difficult - if not impossible - to see any in the picture above.

Meanwhile, a survey of 750 women and 1,250 men has claimed that women are more avid smartphone users than men, with 18% of women checking their devices at least once an hour, compared with 13% of men.

The first person to buy a new iPhone 6 in London said his first priority with the new phone would be taking a selfie.

Jameel Ahmed, 26, and his friend Sam Sheikh, 27, were the first two technology fans through the doors of the Apple store in Covent Garden to buy the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets.

Mr Ahmed said he was "really excited", adding: "I'd like to open it and take my selfie. It's a challenge with my friends that I'll have the iPhone first."

The iPhone 6, with a 4.7 inch screen, and the 6 Plus with 5.5 inch display, went on sale in nine countries and the UK today.

EE said that customers who pre-ordered handsets through Phones 4u, which went bust on Sunday, would still be able to get them in its stores if they had their receipts.
