Apple made a decent amount of money Friday. Stores all over the country finally opened their doors for the first time with the new iPhone 5 in tow, and as expected there were plenty of Apple fanatics camping out well prior to the store’s opening. Greater Boston was no exception.
The huge Apple store on Boylston St. was an obvious hot spot for iPhone 5 buyers. The line began with campers marking their territories as early as 8:37 in the morning…On Thursday.

And of course that line would grow throughout the day:

The line even inspired this guy, who apparently makes his own apps…Although we question how fun or useful a line app would be!
This afternoon I'll be heading to the Apple Boylston store to wait in line for the iPhone 5 and make an app about waiting in lines.—

And you wouldn’t be camping outside a store if you didn’t bring a sleeping bag!

Good thing all the outdoor sleepers survived…

And Apple showed its human side as well, bringing hot coffee to those who waited all that time outside:

The lines weren’t only ridiculous on Boylston St. Apple also had a circus at their locations in Natick…

The lines finally died down a bit around 1:00PM Friday afternoon, but there were still people waiting…
The line over at the Apple store really isn't that bad. http://t.co/KNCQvG7J—
