According to CNET, Verizon and AT&T kicked off pre-orders at midnight, Friday (12 September) but Sprint and T-Mobile sites were still down as of 12.45AM. The last we check, the Apple Online Store is still down. Customers can however purchase the iPhone through Apple’s iOS store app.
The two flagship models will also be available from US Cellular, as well as physical stores like Best Buy, RadioShack, Target and Walmart.
The iPhone 6 goes on sale officially on 19 September, in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.
CNET was inaccurate, however, to state that the phone will be available in 115 countries starting on 19 September. This will only happen towards end of the year.
Malaysia, as usual, occupies third tier in Apple’s books together with Mozambique, so don’t expect to see the new phones until the December timeframe.
