iPhone 5 now on pre-order

MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - People are already getting in line to buy the new iPhone. The digital line, that is.

Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 began early Friday morning.

You can reserve your phone at the Apple Store online. AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint also have the phone available for pre-order on their web sites.

It hits store shelves next Friday, September 21 in the U.S. and several other countries.

The new iPhone is said to be thinner and lighter than the iPhone 4S and be twice the speed of both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

It also has a taller screen.
