We know that people out there really love Apple, but this is a bit much, really. 

We like tech as much as the next person, unless the next person is one of these people who were spotted queuing outside of an Apple flagship store in New York, as early as this morning.

They will be waiting quite a while though, as the phone hasn't even been announced, and Apple aren't even holding that event until September 9th, at which point we imagine there would be a further wait for the phone's actual release date.

According to BreakingNews and CNBC, a few people have already been offered cash in exchange for their spot in the queue, while others are happy to stay there and wait as long as it takes.

We can think of a better use for our holiday days from work, we'll be honest.
