Aussie woman sends ‘robot’ to queue for new iPhone


SYDNEY: Don’t want to wait in line for your new iPhone? Why not send your iPad instead? One Australian woman decided to dispatch a “robot” to do the queueing for the release on Friday of Apple’s new device in Sydney. Lucy Kelly, 22, was the face and voice of the unusual-looking device – an iPad attached to a remote-controlled Segway-style scooter – which she parked outside the store 27 hours before the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus went on sale. “It’s a clear demonstration of the future and what’s coming,” Kelly told Agence France-Presse after becoming one of the first owners of one of each of the new phones. The device waited with other Apple fans until doors opened at 8 am on Friday and was one of the first inside before being taken upstairs—via a lift in its case – to make Kelly’s purchases.
