Next launch of the new iPhone models to take place October 9th; India release set for October 16th
Yes, Apple set a new record for opening weekend sales of the iPhone. As we told you earlier, more than 13 million units of the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus were sold from Friday through Sunday. The next launch of the two handsets will take place on October 9th. On that date, consumers in Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Maldives, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan will be able to purchase the latest iPhone models.

The following day, October 10th, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be offered in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. On October 16th, the two phones will be welcomed in India, Malaysia and Turkey.

This year, Apple included China in the list of countries that received the phone during the initial launch weekend. China has become an increasingly important market to Apple, with more sales of the iPhone in the country than in the U.S. during some recent quarters. Last year, the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus did not launch in China until October 17th.

Thanks for the tip!

Lack of leaks about 6c is very depressing :

Tbh the lack of leaks probably means there is no 6c

There will be no iPhone 6c i believe. Why not just get the iPhone 6. Its cheaper now.

I was hoping for 6c to be 6S with 4"-4.3" screen - that's what's disappointing! No one cares much for repackaged 6/6+

There is no demand for iPhones in India. People here like Xiaomi, Huawei, Samsung, Asus etc., It's a value market, you can't ask such a high price and expect to sell many. BTW, no carieer subsidy in India, a dreadful thing for Apple to compete against. Models which sell in India are 4/4s as they are obviousy cheaper than recent models.

U live in village ? The Cupertino-based company's sales of iPhones in India grew 93% in the third quarter — albeit off a far lower base — faster than 87% growth in Greater China markets, comprising China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
