IPhone fanatics meet their new leader: 6 plus
Large crowds of Apple faithfuls braved a Joburg thunderstorm, waiting patiently to be the first few in the country to get their hands on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus.
Vodacom hosted a small private party with some of South Africa’s hottest names in attendance at its Vodaworld headquarters in Midrand.
Actress Terry Pheto, who has just wrapped up shooting for her film Ayanda and the Mechanic, was there looking gorgeous in black with leopard-print boots, along with Live Amp presenter Luthando Shosha, MTV base VJ Nomuzi Mabena, The Link presenter Learo Kganyago, 5FM DJ Poppy Ntshongwana and singer Denise Zimba. Comic duo Goliath and Goliath entertained the crowd and prepared them for their impending split with their old phones. 5FM radio veteran DJ Fresh rocked the crowd just before the long-awaited moment when iPhone lovers could get their hands on the device, which has sold so well in other parts of the world. Members of the public who had been waiting for hours continued to queue long after the midnight launch. I expected more of a grand reveal with choirs singing and deeply moved soonto-be iPhone 6 owners fainting from joy, but then I remembered that the king of phones needs no such introduction.
