The iPhone 6 has already seen record breaking sales since its September launch, and the numbers are poised to jump even higher as Apple expands to 36 new countries by the end of October, bringing the total to 69 countries/territories. The company plans for its flagship phone to be available in 115 countries by the end of the year.
Next up, and by far the most important as far as sales numbers are concerned, is China, whose telecom providers began offering pre-orders last Friday. If the estimates are correct, 20 million units have been pre-ordered already, which is twice the amount of iPhones that sold in the U.S. over the launch weekend. Both models will
be available this coming Friday, October 17. The handsets will also launch in India and Monaco on that date. (fyi... Monaco represents about 0.0015% of the combined population of these three countries). After Friday the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will launch in 33 more countries before the end of the month:
- Thursday, October 23: Israel
- Friday, October 24: Czech Republic, French West Indies, Greenland, Malta, Poland, Reunion Island and South Africa
- Thursday, October 30: Bahrain and Kuwait
- Friday, October 31: Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, Estonia, Greece, Guam, Hungary, Iceland, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macau, Macedonia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, South Korea, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine and Thailand
