We got these great pictures of the iPhone debut at the Apple Store in Union Square from Matt Johnson, a visiting staffer from our sister site Phillyist. Hope you had a nice time in San Francisco, Matt!

The Chron reports that there were over 200 people in line, but you didn't actually have to wait in line to get one -- the last person in line got in a couple minutes before 6 and came out with an iPhone an hour later.

The picture above is of the first person going into the Apple store at 6 p.m. yesterday. Check out the rest of Phillyist Matt's awesome pictures of the scene here, and after the jump.
