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.
