Ceballo and Joseph Cruz represent electronic reseller BuyBackWorld and were the first people in line before Jason and Moon Ray paid them $2,500 to secure the top spots in line. While waiting, the Rays are promoting an app from VideoMedicine that allows patients to Skype with doctors.
For the fifth year, Ceballo waited with Cruz. He estimates he has made $7,000 waiting for Apple launches in addition to building his social media following.

"That's the thing with iPhone fans—even though they just got the iPhone 5s last year, they still want the latest and greatest," Samuel said in a phone interview.
