HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The scheduled release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus drew large crowds to Apple stores in Hawaii on Friday.

Witnesses in line at the Apple Store along Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki said more than 150 people had lined up before 4 a.m., with the earliest potential customers having gotten in line before 7 p.m. on Thursday.

At Ala Moana Shopping Center, lines stretched around the Macy's store and into the parking lot as hundreds awaited the opportunity to purchase the new devices. 

The company is expected to sell out of the new devices in many stores, and announced earlier this week that more than 4 million pre-orders of the new phones had been made in the first 24 hours, exceeding its initial supply.

Many customers who are unable to get phones on Friday may have to wait until October for more shipments of the new devices, the company said.
