iPhone 6 Pre-Orders to Kick off Tonight at 12:01 AM Pacific
September 11, 2014 § Leave a comment
Following Tuesday’s announcement of both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple announced plans to begin taking pre-orders for the devices on Friday, September 12.
Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T will all begin accepting pre-orders at 12:01 AM PT according to their websites, and carriers typically open up pre-orders alongside Apple. Apple’s support representatives are, however, still claiming that the company does not yet have a specific time for the pre-order.
Unlike last year where only the iPhone 5c was available for pre-order, Apple will be offering both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus for pre-order. There have been few reports on available supply, but typically it’s best to make an order right away if possible because in the past, pre-orders have sold out within mere minutes. As we mentioned yesterday, it’s a good idea to check on upgrade eligibility beforehand.
Apple will be accepting pre-orders through both its website and the Apple Store app. Along with carriers like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, retailers like Best Buy, RadioShack, Sam’s Club, Walmart, and Target will also be accepting iPhone 6 pre-orders, but times may vary.
Apple’s iPhone 6 is available in 16, 64, and 128 GB capacities in the United States for $199, $299, and $399, respectively, with a two-year contract. Contract-free pricing begins at $649. Apple’s higher-priced iPhone 6 Plus is available in 16, 64, and 128 GB capacities for $299, $399, and $499, respectively, with a two-year contract. Contract-free pricing on that device begins at $749.
Pre-orders are expected to be available in the first wave of release countries: US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK, with the phones available in retail stores beginning on September 19. Apple’s second wave of iPhone 6 orders will begin on September 26 for several countries across Europe, Taiwan, New Zealand, and more.
