Here is a video of the many people queueing in Covent Garden to buy the iPhone5. You will hear cheers from the Apple employees when one new customer is allowed to enter the store.
There are still many bugs and disappointments related to the operating system iOS6 though. One problem is that when clicking on “passport” iOS6 says that it “Cannot connect to itunes store” even though you can actually connect later by clicking on any of the menu options. This may be (and it is a guess) that the actual apps are not ready yet.
As for the new Apple map application, its problems inspired this comment from the people at London Underground.
