With the release of iPhone 6 in the market, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) once again displayed its tech superiority. According to the latest updates, iPhone 6 have better availability in their newly launched countries than the countries selling it right from the initial launch.
The study has revealed better availability in newly launched countries and that too with shorter lead-times. For an instance, Denmark, Austria, Italy, Finland, and Spain have an average lead-time of 5 to 7 days for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The availability is quite limited in Turkey with lead-time of 2-3 weeks and Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s China and Singapore websites do not mention the lead-time for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
When compared with the availability of iPhone 6 in Australia, UK, and USA falling in between 7 to 10 days, these new countries are doing well at 5-7 days timeline. Another research from Fiksu has shown that the sale and usage of iPhone 6 is much higher as compared to its bigger version iPhone 6 Plus, which might have been an effect of its availability as well.
According to Barclays, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) is likely to sell as many as 61 million devices in the December quarter and its recent technical glitches are not likely to effect the demand of the iPhone 6. According to the users, they lost cellular service after updating to the latest iOS 8.0.1 software from Apple, although Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) emailed its users to roll back to the previous version immediately after noticing the problem. Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) is likely to release iOS 8.0.2 within a few days with all the fixes. In addition to these software issues, some users even complained that their phone did bend accidentally when users sat on it.
