Apple to launch the iPhone 6 in 22 more countries on the 26th of September

Well, the iPhone 6 models are already up for pre-order and arriving in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the UK in just a few days. The demand is high, as the pre-order units were quickly sold-out and are currently on backorder. If one hasn't gotten a pre-order in, but wishes to get their hands on one of Apple's new smartphones ASAP, visiting a brick and mortar retail store on the 19th of September is their best bet.

If you do not live in one of the countries listed above – fret not, as on September 26th, just a week after the first wave, Apple will open up sales to 22 more countries. Here's the list:

  • 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
  • United Arab Emirates

Curiously, China is still not in the roster. It was supposed to be among the countries that receive the first wave of new iPhones, but was removed from the list on the Apple website in an overnight edit and it is yet unknown what exactly the problem is.

The iPhone 6's pre-order launch day was a nothing short of a success – with more than 4 million units sold in the first 24 hours and the Apple Store crashing numerous times, due to the extreme numbers of people trying to get their order through. It seems that Apple's predictions for a high demand were well on point.

They always predict a high demand but still can't freaking force Foxconn to speed up the production. Jeez, Apple, you gotta learn someday.

They should focus on getting everyone in the Western continents their orders including back orders before going to the rest. All they are going to do is have everyone ticked they have to wait on their phones. On another subject where the hell is the note 4 and edge? Samsung is dropping the ball here.

100 million sold within the 4th quarter! Mark that down... Apple's market share should jump globally back to 15%-16%.
