New iPhones go on sale

Apple started selling the iPhone 5S and 5C on Friday in the U.S. and

several other markets.

As is typical with other Apple product launches,

eager customers lined up outside Apple stores and other retail stores to

become one of the first to own one.

The iPhones follow a slew of

Android smartphones from the company's competitors, including Samsung,

Motorola and HTC. (Associated Press)
