When we acquire our beloved mobile gizmos from the numerous shops that retail them, we practically fail to remember the quantity of work as well as the various procedures that go right into creating a freshly boxed, factory sealed tool. With Apple having already taken some 4 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders, the deliveries are showing up by the plane lots, and below, we have a rare, first-hand look at the procedure of carrying them over by air.

We understand that the Apple iPhone, like the majority of the company’s products, is produced in China, and also that it must, somehow, be delivered across the globe to the numerous millions of customers. Nevertheless, it’s not usually that we acquire a chance to look inside a Boeing 747 bring hundreds of units at a time, yet thanks to a reader over at MacRumors, we could now look at just what 195,000 iPhones appear like when delivering right into Alaska.


With a complete weight of 256,000 lbs, this is certainly not a light lots, and also although you can not view the contents due to the fact that every little thing is obscured under tarpaulin, the fact that this bundle showed up early on September 15th ways that it’s likely to be offering numerous of the lucky few who’ll be in receipt of their iPhone 6 / 6 Plus on the September 19th launch date.

While the rise in pre-orders suggests that individual planning to protect an unit will certainly not have the ability to utilize it on the 19th, there’s consistently a relatively trustworthy method of acquiring an iPhone on Friday – – queuing.

Standing outside your regional Apple Retailer mightn’t appear ideal, but it’s a rather tiny rate to pay – – specifically given the greater than $ 1,700 price of an iPhone 6 Plus on ebay.com.



Still, if you behaved very early as well as pre-ordered through particular service providers, your gadget could well be detailing as “getting ready for shipment” right now, as well as if this definitely the situation, then there’s a reasonable opportunity that your handset was flown in on this extremely plane.

With iOS 8 now ready for lift-off, the wait is well as well as truly on for the iPhone 6 and also 6 Plus, as well as with simply three days to enter some parts of the globe, here’s to wishing there are no significant, Antennagate-like launch disasters.
