NEW YORK - It is the most anticipated iPhone since the original.

The iPhone X hit stores Friday morning.

People all over the world, including here in the city, lined up outside Apple stores for hours, some for days to get their hands on Apple's newest smartphone.

Apple is trying something new this year, launching two different iPhone models six weeks apart.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus went on sale September 21, but excitement was cool because many decided to wait for the iPhone X.

The new iPhone comes with plenty of new features including face ID that unlocks the phone when users look at it.

Prices start at $999.
