Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) did it again with the latest version of iPhone i.e. iPhone 6, as the company had a huge list of customers ready to pre-order the phone just after a few hours of the launch. However, Apple fans do have to wait up to 4-weeks for the bigger version, iPhone 6 Plus, as stated by Apple’s website.
Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on September 9 with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch HD retina displays with a seamless design. During the launch, Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, said,
“iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the biggest advancements in iPhone history. The iPhone is the most loved smartphone in the world with the highest customer satisfaction in the industry and we are making it much better in every way. Only Apple can combine the best hardware, software, and services at this unprecedented level and we think customers are going to love it.”
Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) started taking pre-orders on September 12 and Apple’s website crashed just hours after the opening of pre-order for iPhone 6. Most of the users reported slow load time because of the traffic, although most of the services were restored within 30 minutes. In fact, AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T)’s mobile division CEO, Ralph de la Vega, said, “Every time there is a change in design, and this is clearly a change in design for Apple, there is an uptake. I think there’s going to be a great uptake, which is good for us.”
Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) will start shipping iPhone 6 from September 19, although iPhone 6 Plus may have further delays in delivery. iPhone 6 will be available in the range of $199 to $399 with a two-year contract whereas iPhone 6 Plus is likely to cost $299 to $499 per device.
