Will Darney waited in line overnight at Westfarms mall’s Apple store to get a new gold iPhone 5S when the doors opened at 8 a.m.
But when, after 10 hours, he got to the counter, the store was out of that color.
He and a friend, Christian Robison, were among the first 10 people in line. They said they watched as three people ahead of them got two gold 5S phones apiece.
So they got the silver 5S instead, but the 64-gig version, the capacity they wanted. They were “pretty disappointed,” Darney said. “Not totally, though.”
