By 8am in Charlestown there was a line of about 20 people waiting outside the Telstra shop, eagerly waiting for the doors to open so they could purchase the new product.

Newcastle University student Alex Mossman, 21, came all the way from Valentine to be first in line and he quickly bought himself a 5S in grey before heading to a 9am lecture.

‘‘I was so excited, especially about the new camera features…it can slow down videos by four times,’’ he said.

The new iPhone features a variety of upgrades, including the popularly promoted fingerprint recognition.

‘‘It’s great because it actually works too,’’ Alex said.
