The Art of the Apple Launch Day High-Five

Sep 20 2013 - 1:34pm

It's a whole new world for Apple fans with Friday's launch of the iPhone 5C and 5S [1], yet the traditions of Apple product launches remain with each new device unveiled. The lines wrapped around the store, the die-hards that camped out the night before, the complimentary coffee, and — of course — high-fives and cheers from the army of Apple store employees as you enter the building with high hopes and exit the building, shiny new device in hand.

You don't walk past an Apple store the morning a phone goes on sale without hearing crowds that sound as if their hometown sports team just won the world championship. Employees and customers alike have the high-five and applause down to an artful science. So much so that the following high-fives will always be present at your friendly neighborhood Apple outpost.


The "Keep Line Morale Up" High-Five


The "You're Almost There, Don't Give Up!" High-Five


The "Started From the Bottom, Now You're Here" High-Five


The "Thank You For You, and Everything You Do" High-Five


And the high-five you'll be met with at any Apple store in any part of the world on launch day:

The "Happy Sea of Hands" High-Five(s)
