In this photo by Andy Wong, scalpers try to resell iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices to people leaving an Apple Store in Beijing. Apple's latest smartphones have yet to arrive on the Chinese mainland but are available in Hong Kong. Chinese customs officials say they've intercepted hundreds of the Apple devices smuggled between Hong Kong and the neighboring mainland city of Shenzhen. Apple said it sold more than 10 million of the two new models in their first three days on sale.
