Apple iPhone 6 Plus is sold out; phablet will ship in 3 to 4 weeks
Looks like there has been quite a pent-up demand for a phablet-sized iPhone. The 5.5 inch Apple iPhone 6 Plus is now sold out and is on back order for 3 to 4 weeks, according to Apple's web site. On the other hand, there seems to be plenty of the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 to go around. Those pre-ordering that model now, will have their handset shipped on the original September 19th launch date. Both models are also expected to be available in stores starting next Friday. Considering the demand for the iPhone 6 Plus online, it might be very hard to find in brick and mortar stores next week.

The Apple iPhone 6 is priced on contract at $199 for 16GB, $299 for 64GB and $399 for 128GB. Apple removed the 32GB tier this year, replacing it with a 128GB option. The Apple iPhone 6 Plus starts at $299 on contract for 16GB and costs $399 and $499 for 64GB and 128GB, respectively. Both models are available in Gold, Silver and Space Gray. Apple says that by the end of the year, the two phones will be available in 150 markets.

The Apple iPhone remains the company's most important product. The handset accounted for half of Apple's $171 billion in revenue last year. Apple also will start shipping the Apple Watch early in 2015. With tablet sales beginning to slump, Apple is hoping that its new timepiece more than makes up for any drop off in iPad sales.

"2012 tech" seems to be doing a hell lot better than 2014 tech from some OEMs. Let the hurt begin.

And there are people who like Apple and how they work and would love a bigger iPhone.

Exactly. For me the better product for MY needs is the iPhone. I jumped ship from android (htc hero, Evo, Gs2) and had my fun with rooting. I really like that the device is supported with updates for 4 years. Have fun in android ios or w/e you like, judging someone based on their phone is ridiculous.

As opposed to the die-hard idiot fangirls who love whatever Samsung throws at them? Crappy plastic finish and half baked operating system and all.

What did you expect? Only further proves iFans have been wanting larger phones for ever, just too stubborn to admit it and Apple was too stubborn to make it. We've been saying it for years and now it has been confirmed! Feels good to be right! Apple was going to be dead unless they started following Android, and they started to. Very smart on their part. You get widgets, NFC, and landscape home screens! You finally see what you've been missing!

LOL, are you stupid? iPhones always sell out at launch regardless of size.

The same with the samsung galaxy s5 and galaxy s5 mini. Not sure also if they make million of sell for there Note 4, Edge, Alpha. And I'm sure the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 will sell millions.

When Apple brought two phones to market same time ,one always get left behind like the 5C. Which will it be this time? They are getting smart by making limited numbers of the lesser known phone which is the IPhone 6 plus.

LOL, you are stupid? Can you see what's happening to Apple iPhone 6 now. I don't any news that Note 4 and Galaxy Edge OUT OF STOCK since they launch first, haha! Sometime, you need to admit that in many ways, Apple is better than samsung android, ok!

Better in what??? Sales may be.... But still samsung leads total number of smartphones shipped....but that doesn't matter... Apple is better in having a large number of blind fans who will buy whatever apple throws at them...and will believe whateva apple says to them....regardless of it's credibility....just like 3.5 inch is perfect size for smartphone.....and now see what happened.....

1 iPhone = 2,3,4,5,6,7 samsung phones. Yes, number of sell is higher but the price is the same with the 7 units of samsung phone compare to 1 iPhone. Do you get what I mean.

lol . In your opinion maybe but your opinion is just that and does not matter . You be happy with your smartphone and stop criticising others and their choices because it goes both ways .

I would have not charged against him if he had not criticized samsung in every article..... Personally I have nothing against people buying iphone.... But when people him like state sales as measure to define greatness of smartphone....i just can't control it....

The Edge will go on sale next year, the Note 4 will be sold end of this month I believe in USA. So that would explain it not being sold out. Although I doubt it will be sold out anyway. It has been sold out in Indonesia, if that counts for something

I don't see any news here in PA, GSMArena, Yahoo, DailyTech, 9to5Mac about note 4 sold out in indonesia.
