After initially launching in twelve countries on Friday, September 25, Apple has now announced that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus hardware will be sold in forty five additional countries starting Friday, October 9. Tim Cook, Apple’s Chief Executive Officer, has described the demand for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as “phenomenal” as part of an official Apple press release that not only outlines the upcoming availability of the hardware in new territories, but also discusses the record breaking number of units sold in its opening weekend.
Apple has managed to shatter last year’s previous sales records during the opening weekend of availability with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and will be hoping to further increase those numbers by shipping the hardware to an additional forty five countries as it continues on its release roadmap. The availability of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in new countries will undoubtedly hit Apple’s stock levels hard, but will also bring in huge amounts of revenue for the Cupertino-based company as consumers clamber to get the latest and greatest iPhone yet.
The countries set to receive the hardware starting Friday, October 9 include:
- Czech Republic
- Isle of Man
On October 10th, the following countries will get the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus:
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates
and on October 16th:
Apple also plans to have the hardware available in more than 130 countries by the end of the current year, along with the availability of all of the announced accessories that compliment the device, such as the silicon and leather cases and color-coded Lightning docks.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus feels like much more than just an evolution of last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Granted, the physical design and appearance of the hardware remains consistent with what we’ve had for the last twelve months, but the introduction of powerful features such as 3D Touch, and the inclusion of 2GB of RAM and an improved Touch ID sensor make the device feel like it’s been entirely reimagined. We can’t wait to see the sales figures for the hardware at the end of the year when the device is available globally.
