How Long Would You Wait in Line for an iPhone X?

The line outside the Downtown Manhattan Oculus, even at 10:30, was formidable to say the least.

Remember Apple's (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. (AAPL) Report iPhone 8 launch day? Crickets. However, the long-awaited iPhone X day drew a much larger crowd that not only stretched outside the Apple store, but along a good chunk of downtown Manhattan's Oculus. 

One of the biggest takeaways I had, aside from the size of the line, was the number of armed security personnel in the wake of Tuesday's NYC terror attack. I had a few reservations about heading to the popular tourist attraction, and others surely did as well, but it shows the gravitas of Apple's pull. And the lengths iPhone fans will go to in order to acquire the newest technology.
