CityPress - - Voices - GUGULETHU MH­LUNGU Gugulethu.Mh­lungu@city­press.co.za

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.
