The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus go on sale in Apple stores across the globe on Friday.

Hundreds of people usually gather at Apple's Sydney city store with lines winding down the town's main street, George Street, when there is a new product release, Reuters noted. But there were fewer than 30 people lining up before the store opened on Friday, according to a Reuters witness.
