It's nice to have rich friends, and if you don't believe me, just ask the former high school classmates of Chinese billionaire Qian Fenglei, who recently treated each of them to the brand new iPhone 6 weeks before it became available to the public.

The billionaire gave at least 14 of his classmates the new iPhone with the inscription "Class of 1992, Maoshan Middle School." Reportedly, the phones were also  gold. 

The gifts should come as no surprise as Qian Fenglei is known for his generosity. During the relief efforts following the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, the billionaire donated two million yuan to help fund the recovery. This is apparently the second time he gave iPhones to his classmates during a reunion.
