Apple's highly anticipated iPhone 6 has only been available for pre-order for a few days with Apple and corresponding retailers already facing rapidly depleting stocks and delays in delivery. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus pre-order started Sept. 12 and has been available from the Apple website and other major U.S. wireless carriers like Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T.
Apple's online store has already seen pre-orders overrun initial stocks for the iPhone 6 Plus and the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 version, getting a 7-10 day shipping period. Since the opening of the pre-order shipping estimates have shot up to 3-4 weeks both in the U.S and International Apple Stores.
Major U.S. carriers like Verizon and AT&T still have some color variants and storage options available but those are also quickly going out of stock too and many may have to wait until mid-late October, or even November. more >>

Apple's Sept. 9 press conference was mainly to unveil the iPhone 6 but some details about the previously dubbed "iWatch" now called the Apple Watch were also revealed. It seems the unveiling of the watch came just in time before Motorola is to release their Moto 360.
Still, even with the impending release of the Moto 360, Apple still has to face their rival Samsung in the release of smartwatches, which Samsung has been doing long before Apple released the Apple Watch. The latest offering the South Korean company, the Gear 2 is currently Apple's most recent competition in the smartwatch market.
Both watches share a square-face design with a few differences on the side. With the Apple Watch, it has a single knob and button on the side. The Gear 2 on the other hand has a home button at the bottom part of the watch and a 2-megapixel camera to the top of the watch. more >>
