The new Apple iPhone 7 is out, but the lines were short at Westfarms mall early this morning.
The iPhone 7 is in stock, but the iPhone 7 Plus is sold out and customers will not be able to get one now unless they preordered. Officials from Sprint and T-Mobile said preorders are up nearly 400 percent over previous launches.
There are new earphones for the iPhone 7 -- a wireless version called AirPods, which sell for $159.
Features of the new phone include a water-resistant body, stereo speakers and an extended battery life.
Staff members from Westfarms said hundreds of people were in line up on Thursday, but many left.
David Epstein, of West Hartford, was the first person in line on Friday and said he’s a little disappointed about the early sell-out, but decided to stick around and see what he can get.
The Apple store at Westfarms opened at 8 a.m.
