As Apple has been pushing for the online sale of the latest iPhone 7, fewer fans of the device have been lining up for the sale, unlike the previous models. Yet there are still a few fans who have made headlines and become popular as the brought in some unique things during the sales. One of those mega fans from Japan Ayano Tominaga queued up for the new iPhone in Tokyo last week and she brought a body pillow with Steve Jobs drawn on it in order to keep her company. The Apple fanatic happily clicked photographs with her body pillow, and also with other Apple fans. According to reports, Tominaga slept outside the store for two consecutive nights meanwhile sharing pictures on the photo app Instagram as she waited for the new iPhone 7 to arrive.

Pushing the boundaries of fandom and comfort, interestingly, this is neither the first time nor the longest time she has come to an Apple Store for the sale with her Steve Jobs pillow. Reportedly, Tominaga came in 2014 for iPhone 6 launch day and had put her pillow on display. She had spent a whopping nine days outside the Apple Store waiting for the new iPhone to go on sale. Until the time such Apple fans keep coming for the sales, there will be more customers lining up at the launches. Yet, it generally makes more sense to pre-order the smartphone online and waits for it, a bit. Last week it was reported in New Zealand that an army of mini robots queued up to get the Kiwis a hand at the new iPhone 7.
