SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - iPhone fanatics spent the night outside stores in San Diego last night or joined lines early Friday to get their hands on Apple's latest products, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

“It's new - honestly - it's newer - so it's the coolest thing ever - size matters for sure - with a bigger phone - it's faster all that good stuff,” Adam Stafford said. 

Liz Vittrauer may win wife of the year award camping out all night - and the phone isn't even for her.

“I'm actually getting a phone for my husband - he's in the Navy - shipping out to Hawaii soon and really wanted this phone before we left San Diego - so it seemed like the thing to do,” she said.

As the the first customers made their way into the store at 8 a.m., we recognized a familiar face in line -- our own Matt Johnson, who may just be a bigger tech geek than Marcella Lee.

“It's a bigger screen, it's a bigger battery - it's faster - it's the new iPhone - what happens every year,” Matt said.

Inside the store, it felt like Christmas morning, big kids finally getting the toy they've been waiting for. And Matt, after playing around with the bigger iPhone 6 Plus, he opted for the smaller new iPhone 6.

“It just felt like I was holding a small child - I thought if I dropped it - it'd be the end of the world and it's - I don't know - too much responsibility for me...I went with the smaller phone,” Matt said.

Apple says the new gadgets have larger screens with retina high definition displays, faster processors and better synching with other devices. The iPhone 6 plus has a 5.5-inch screen, while the regular iPhone 6's screen is 4.7 inches.
