iPhone 6 and 6 Plus hitting 36 more countries this month

Following last month’s UK release, Apple has confirmed both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will launch in 36 more countries this month.
 
According to the Cupertino-based company, this latest push keeps plans on track to bring both new phones to retail in over 100 locations worldwide by the end of the year.
 
October’s widespread roll-out will see the fruity phones go on sale in 36 new countries across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and Africa.
 
This means the sized-up iPhones will be available in 69 countries total, with a view to flog the devices in 115 before 2014 is out.
 
Apple launched its iPhone 6 smartphone duo last month at an event in California, showing off the largest handsets ever produced by the firm.
 
Demand has been high for the phones ever since, with Apple claiming UK sales alone would’ve topped 10 million units had there been sufficient stock.
 
The phones are yet to go on sale in China, where the latest reports suggest pre-order figures have risen above the 10-million mark.
 
China will be leading the way with the latest roll-out, with smartphones shipping to the eastern nation alongside India and Monaco on October 17.
 
Israel is set to follow on October 23, with a raft of countries in tow, including South Korea, Mexico, and Ukraine.
 
The iPhone 6 touts a 4.7-in screen (a boost from the 4-in iPhone 5S), while the iPhone 6 Plus proffers a gargantuan 5.5-in display.
 
Apple’s latest blowers also sport the firm’s newest operating system – iOS 8. The mobile software includes the fitness-focused Health app, predictive typing, and a brighter colour scheme.
