Apple will begin accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on September 12th, followed by a September 19th launch date in the United States, France, Hong Kong, Canada, Germany, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan. Now, the company has confirmed that its second wave of iPhone 6 sales will start one week later.
As part of its commitment to launching the iPhone 6 in 115 countries by the end of this year, Apple confirmed on Thursday that the all-new smartphone will arrive in a long list of other countries on September 26th. A number of Apple’s international websites have been updated to reflect this information, as 9to5Mac reports.
The list of countries that will begin selling the iPhone 6 on September 26th includes Switzerland, Italy, New Zealand, Sweden, Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Luxembourg, Russia, Austria, Turkey, Finland, Taiwan, Belgium, Portugal. Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates will begin selling the iPhone 6 on September 27th.
It should be noted that while Apple is poised to begin accepting iPhone 6 orders in these countries in a few weeks, it remains unknown when the Cupertino-based company will actually begin shipping the smartphones in these regions. I would recommend checking your local Apple website for further details, including pricing information.
A number of carriers in these countries will also be accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 6 earlier than the September 26th date.
