Apple fans have been waiting in line, some for more than 24 hours, to get their hands on Apple's latest release.

Pre-orders for Apple's new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus began earlier this month, and today, the devices are available in stores and online.

The new iPhone models are the same in appearance as the previous generation, but have new software features including 3-D touch and a new rose gold color option.

People have been lining up at Iowa's only Apple Store in Des Moines for the new phones, with some fans waiting in line since Wednesday night.

For a limited time beginning Friday, carriers such as Sprint are offering the iPhone 6s for one dollar a month, and the iPhone 6s Plus for five dollars a month with the trade-in of an iPhone 6.
