Apple's iPhone 5 has gone on sale around the world - attracting the now-traditional huge queues, with iPhone fans camping outside Apple Stores across the globe in an attempt to be among the first to get their hands on the new device.

According to analysts, Apple are expected to sell around 10million of the iPhone 5 in the opening weekend - more than any other previous iPhone.

However, the launch of the iPhone 5 has not gone entirely smoothly. The new Maps app - which replaces Google Maps, a feature of every previous iPhone - has been widely criticised and mocked since the software became available for older iPhone models two days ago. The Maps, created by Apple themselves based on data from companies such as sat-nav firm TomTom, have been mocked for having innacurate and out-of-date information, a lack of detail, and sometimes misplacing entire towns.
