New iPhone 6s hits stores.

SYDNEY/SAN FRANCISCO — The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus hit stores on Friday, with dozens of people — and a robot — queuing in Sydney to kick off a global sales cycle that will be scrutinised for signs of how much juice Apple’s marquee product has left.

Last year, the iPhone 6 make headlines because of “bendgate” — a story that took off when people started posting videos on the internet of them warping their own phones. Analysts expect 12-million to 13-million phones to fly off the shelves in the first weekend, up from more than 10 million last year when the hugely successful iPhone 6’s launch was delayed in China, the world’s biggest smartphone market. “I obviously have my work and other things to attend to and can’t spend two days lining up so my boss at work suggested I take one of the robots down and use it to stand in my place,” she said via an iPad mounted on top of the wheeled robot. “I love new gadgets. The new camera is meant to be amazing.” Fans from San Francisco to London to Sydney have camped out for days prior to the release, and Apple said earlier this month that pre-orders suggested sales were on pace to beat last year’s first-weekend performance. The phones, which are the same size as last year’s models, feature improved cameras and 3D touch, a display technology that responds according to how hard users press their screens. “Today is like Christmas for pocket film makers all around the world because the iPhone 6S Plus is like the newest, greatest toy we have to play with,” said Jason van Genderen, who makes movies on smart phones in Sydney. “I’ve never seen anything like it, it’s astounding. Apple had to repeatedly deny the claims and even ended up taking journalists on a trip around its testing facility, to prove that the phone wasn’t susceptible to bending.
