As per usual, iPhone's latest release caused a slight frenzy in Miami. The iPhone 6 was released earlier this morning (so your chances of scoring one today would take a miracle), and people were camping out in front of the Apple store on Lincoln Road as of Thursday afternoon, Miami Herald reports. That wanes in comparison to what people do in other cities, like that time a couple paid $2,500 to be the first in line at a New York City Apple store as of September 1, using their month-long membership at a nearby YMCA to shower.
