The much anticipated iPhone X went on sale Friday, and Apple fans across the world clamored to get their hands on the 10th anniversary version iPhone. This comes a day after Apple released its strong fourth-quarter earnings, beating Wall Street expectations partly on sales of the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The iPhone X base model retails for $999 and features new facial recognition technology, a larger screen and improved camera features and capabilities. While the price tag may be steep, long lines at Apple retail stores indicate large demand for the iPhone X.

Here are some of the scenes from around the world.
