The iPhone 6 Sept. 9 launch has been a success and the highly-anticipated smartphone will be available to retail on Sept. 19 with pre-orders opening on Sept. 12.
Two size variants of the iPhone 6, the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch, will both be made available on those dates. The 5.5-inch variant has been dubbed the iPhone 6 Plus. Both size variants will be sporting the same specs – a 64-bit A8 chipset, Retina Display, improved graphics, and an NFC chip which would allow users to use the iPhone 6 to make payments.
Apple themselves will be accepting pre-orders as well as other U.S. wireless carriers. It is expected that the release of the iPhone 6 will cause inevitably long lines with retailers and with the Apple stores themselves so it might be a better option to pre-order instead. more >>
