The launch of the latest iPhone has failed to attract big crowds in Scotland's largest city - for the first time.

Mark saved up his earnings from a summer job for the new iPhone. 

He said: "We were the very first and only people here 'til, like, 6am.

The hotly-anticipated iPhone X was also announced at the Apple event in California two weeks ago, but won't be released until early November. 

William said: "We had read it was all round the block for the iPhone 6S.

"We think [the iPhone X launch] will be a bigger queue than iPhone 8. 

"They should've waited until Christmas or something to launch it." 

On the right hand side of the door was a reserved ticketing queue with pre-booked time slots, and on the other side was the normal unreserved queue.
