Some people just have to be first. So, a day before Apple's major announcement Wednesday, at least one person appears to be camping outside a store.

On Tuesday, CNET's Australia and Asia editor, Seamus Byrne, posted an image on Twitter of a silver and green tent on the pavement in front of an Apple store in Sydney. "Oh my. Peak Apple. Someone is queuing in Sydney before THEY HAVE EVEN ANNOUNCED ANYTHING!!!" the caption read.


It's unclear whether anyone was actually in the tent.
