Steve Jobs used to say that nobody wants to buy a bigger phone. Now it appears that Apple has proven its own founder wrong as the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have achieved a new milestone with over 4 million units pre-ordered in the first 24 hours.
The first batch of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be delivered this coming Friday, 19th September in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK. As the demand is overwhelming, Apple anticipates many of its orders to be delivered next month in October.
Despite having huge demand, Apple is opening up the new iPhones to more countries next week on 26th September. The 22 countries include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and United Arab Emirates. Nope, Malaysia isn’t on the list unfortunately.
From its announcement, Apple is targeting to reach out to 114 countries by end of this year so it looks like we would probably get it before the Christmas holidays. As comparison, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C took 50 days from its announcement to reach Malaysia.
