Hundreds of people gathered outside Bromley Apple Store in the hopes of buying the new iPhone X that launched today.

The store at The Glades opened at 8am for the launch of the new smartphone.

Twitter was abuzz with photos and tweets about the queues outside Apple Stores in London.

The Glades' Facebook page said: “The NEW #iPhoneX is here!!! Who will be coming to get theirs?”

The Bromley Apple Store is the only branch in south-east London and north Kent since the Bluewater store closed due to refurbishments.

So what’s so great about the new iPhone X?

The new smartphone is said to be the best one yet with an all-glass design, super retina display and wireless charging.

The iPhone X will now deliver an innovative and secure way to unlock their phone with Face ID, which will use the front camera.

But, the iPhone X starts at £999 and goes up to £1,149 depending on the amount of memory you want/need.

In some parts of London, people were queuing from 5am to ensure they received the new phone.

So what do you think? Is it all it’s cracked up to be? Would you spend this much on a new iPhone?

Send us your photos of any queues outside Apple stores this morning.
