The Apple iPhone 6 Plus has sold out and the iPhone 6 is not far behind, at least according to Mashable.com. Just take a look below at the updates they posted throughout the day.
UPDATE, 12:30 p.m. ET: An Apple spokesperson told Re/code that the new iPhones had brought in “a record number of preorders overnight.”
UPDATE, 9:45 a.m. ET: The iPhone 6 Plus model is now sold out in the U.S. and isn’t expected to ship for up to four weeks. However, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 version is still available for delivery on Friday, Sept. 19.
UPDATE, 6:07 a.m. ET: The U.S. Apple Store is online, and all of the models are available for pre-order. The delivery date for all iPhone 6 variants and colors is Sept. 19. As for the iPhone 6 Plus, you can currently get all variants (16/64/128GB) in Silver and Space Gray in “7-10 business days.” The Gold version of all three variants seems to be in higher demand, with availability being “3-4 weeks.”
All of this is part of Apple’s marketing game and it’s brilliant, if you’re Apple and the wireless carriers that is. For regular Joe Consumer it can be frustrating being on a carriers’ website trying to order and continually getting errors. So you probably think those folks who stayed up at 3am EST to order theirs are going to be enjoying their iPhone 6’s in a week. Well kind of. They’re actually going to enjoy the profits they’re making by listing them on eBay. Just take a look at the pic below, $1410 for a $949 iPhone 6 Plus 128GB.
I don’t know about you but I think I can wait for my iPhone 6 Plus holy cow!
