Carriers expects iPhone 6s pre-orders to begin Sept. 11 ahead of Sept. 18 launch

Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available to pre-order on Friday, September 11, ahead of a launch on September 18, according to new information that has been leaked by a French carrier. These dates corroborate those we’ve heard from recent reports.

The image below claims to be from a French carrier’s database, and if genuine, it confirms iPhone 6s pre-orders will begin two days after Apple’s rumored September 9 event. That’s traditionally how much time the company allows between the keynote and starting pre-orders, so this seems to make sense.

The exact same pre-order and launch dates were also spilled by German carriers earlier this week.

What’s unclear at this point, however, is whether these dates have really been confirmed by Apple, which seems unlikely, or whether carriers are simply making preliminary plans based on dates that have recently been rumored.

With that in mind, while these dates do seem to line up, we suggest you don’t read too much into them until they are confirmed by Apple next month. Even if they do change slightly, however, you can be almost certain that you’ll have a new iPhone by the end of September if you pre-order right away.
