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

22

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.
