As you would expect, there was a long queue outside the Apple Store in Palo Alto, California with fans lining up for more than a day to get their hands on the new iPhones. But they were all in for a huge surprise when Tim Cook made an appearance outside the store and also obliged fans with selfies.
Cook walked the line and posed for selfies with customers, before heading into the store. Inside he mingled with the employees and also kicked off the iPhone 6 sale by opening the doors to the Apple Store.
Check out Tim Cook’s tweet thanking buyers around the world. Also check out numerous selfies posted on Twitter below.

Tim Cook wasn’t the only Apple executive mingling with customers either. Angela Ahrendts visited the Apple store in Sydney, Australia, while Eddy Cue made an appearance at the Stanford store.
Eddy Cue is here at the Stanford store.
