Over in Australia, a guy from Perth had the luck and the perseverance to become the first person on the continent to purchase a new iPhone 6. He was so excited about this that as he opened the box he accidentally dropped the phone and it broke. Oh, and the whole thing was captured on camera. And was broadcast on television. Ouch.
The first sign of trouble came almost immediately, when the man was approached by a local TV newscaster to open his iPhone 6 on the air. He couldn’t get the box to open right away, so he gave it a shake, and the rest probably seemed to happen in slow motion. And imagine the chorus of shouts from a crowd of onlookers must not have felt too good either.
