The new phone will run customers $999. Some already pre-ordered the phone and came out to the line to try to re-sell them.

"I ordered four on the preorder for $999 each. They're going for $1,500 on eBay, so hopefully I can flip them," said Sagar Desai.

Others are looking to make some money off of this too. Jennifer Goff runs a business called Skip The Line. A customer paid her to stand in line for 18 hours to get the phone. Her going rate right now is $30 an hour.

Meanwhile, some customers are waiting in line for themselves, excited to get their hands on the new phone.

"It's the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and I just wanted to get here and get the phone myself, said Mark Borelli.

Apple stores open their doors at 8 a.m Friday.
