Friday is the day many of you technology lovers have been waiting for, the release of the new iPhone 5's.

Both iPhone 5S and 5C are now available.

59News spoke to wide-eyed customers to find out why they're in love with their new toys.

"I am probably the first few people in line to get the new iPhone, I'm always the first few people to line out there," eager customer Angel Tyler said.

They told 59News what they're most excited to see in their new products.

"You can use your finger prints to access everything and it has a faster processor which makes downloading things twice as fast," said Tyler.

"I'm really excited for the finger print scan and the new IOS 7 system," said David Lane.

"I'm an avid shopper and with this I can pull it up a whole lot faster because the processing is a lot faster so with this I can really get my deals," Tyler told us.

The 5s is offered in 3 different color varieties and the 5c boasts 5 different colors.

"The 5s comes in gray on gray, white on silver and gold on silver," AT&T Assistant Store Manager TJ Francisco said.

"Yeah I really like the silver, I have a silver Chevy and I'd really like to match that to it," said Lane.

"The 5c comes in 5 or 6 different colors: yellow, pink, white, red and green," said Francisco.

He broke down the other major differences between the two popular devices.

"The price difference for the 5s is $199 for the 16 GB, $299 for the 32 and $399 for the 64. It has a larger camera and the finger print scan. The price for the 5c are $99 for the 16 GB and $199 for the 32 GB," Francisco told us.
