WASHINGTON (AP) Some Washington iPhone fanatics are enjoying the latest model of the gadget after standing in line for more than 24 hours.

The new iPhone was released at 7 a.m. Thursday morning.

Hundreds of people are lined up along Wisconsin Avenue at a new Apple store in Georgetown. Some pre-ordered their new phones online. But most are hoping in-store supplies will last long enough.

Apple employees haven't said how many iPhones are in stock.

Thirty-nine-year-old Sean Hill, a D.C. police officer, proudly emerged from the store just before 7:40 a.m., holding up his new iPhone to the crowd. He said the experience was like being a kid in a candy store.

The new iPhone has several first-time features, including two cameras and the ability to edit videos using the touch screen.
