Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is apparently in a hurry to get ahold of a new iPhone 4S.

Television station NBC11 ( ) is reporting that Wozniak was first in line when he showed up Thursday at the Apple store in Los Gatos.

With the new device going on sale Friday, Wozniak told the station that even though he has two new phones on the way, he plans on staying overnight outside the store.

Wozniak was one of about five people who were in line around 2 p.m. Thursday at the store.

He told NBC11 that while he waits, he plans on getting caught up on his email and chatting with fans.

Apple's latest iPhone hits stores Friday after already breaking a record on first-day pre-orders. People who want one can buy it in the U.S. starting at 8 a.m. in each time zone.
