BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Apple released its iPhone to customers around the world a week after the company’s visionary dies. Now questions continue about the future of the hi-tech giant.

Kai Jackson reports.

The release of the new iPhone 4S was a hyped event and people waited in lines to get one.

In Chicago, people camped out overnight.

Demand for them seemed to vary from place to place, yet it’s clear Apple is enjoying the fruits of success.

Company co-founder Steve Wozniak was in line to get his iPhone in Los Gatos, Calif.

“This is one of those magical, important points in time,” Wozniak said. “You know, it’s almost like one of the three wise men showing up. You want to be there for these big events.”

The iPhone 4S, already available on AT&T and Verizon, has a new carrier– Sprint. Apple is now making a 64 gigabyte model which has improved software and an 8 megapixel camera.

“The iPhone 4S has got a faster processor, it’s got a better camera, an 8 megapixel camera and a 10 atp video camera,” one customer explained.

This is the first release of a new Apple product since co-founder Steve Jobs died last week.

While there are questions about the company’s future, for now, loyalty among fans remains clear.

“Apple. I love them. They’re just the best. Best company in the world,” said one person.

The iPhone 4S retails for around $400.
