Crazy Apple Fan Flies From Bangkok to Sydney — Waits 18 Hours in the Rain For iPhone 7

Despite heavy criticisms of the new iPhone 7, it seems that many crazed Apple fans are still out there.
Hundreds of fans have been camping up to two days outside of Apple’s flagship store in Sydney to get their hands on an iPhone 7, according to Daily Mail.
Among them was Attapon ‘Tom’ Thaphaengphan, 30, who spent $800 traveling to Sydney from Thailand to make the launch.
Thaphaengphan arrived in Australia on Monday and documented his whole trip on Facebook
He spent time visiting a few friends and visiting some landmarks before getting in line.
For the next 18 hours, Thaphaengphan dealt with rain, cold temperatures and loud construction noise.
He regrets not bringing more clothes to keep himself warm.
Fortunately, we was able to get someone to hold his place in life to grab food with friends along with a quick McDonald’s run.
Apple was kind enough to help people in line charge their phones and provide free wi-fi while they waited.
When the store finally opened, Thaphaengphan became one of the lucky ones to be the first to purchase the new iPhone 7.
He opted for the 128gb iPhone 7 Plus Gold.
He also made a video for iPhoneMode, a Thai iPhone website where he works at to document his experience.
