Apple mania reached fever pitch as lucky punters became the first to get their hands on the new iPhone.
The latest Apple gadget became available from 8am, as hundreds were cheered into the brand's store in Covent Garden, central London.

The phone is already guaranteed to be a best-seller, with the company reporting pre-orders around the world of two million in just 24 hours and many customers not expected to receive theirs until October.
