iPhone 6 Plus sold out for launch day on Apple Store

The iPhone 6 Plus has already sold out on the Apple Store for launch day, along with the 64GB iPhone 6.

It’s pretty much tradition for Apple to sell out of iPhone stock ahead of their release date and it looks like the same has happened with the iPhone 6 duo.

Taking a quick look on the Apple website, the scheduled shipping dates for all three storage options of the iPhone 6 Plus and in all colour varieties has now slipped to 3-4 weeks.

The same can be said for the 64GB iPhone 6 in all three colours. But you can still pick up the 16GB or 128GB iPhone 5 in time for launch, with shipping still falling with the 7-10 day zone.

The iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 are both due to be released on September 19, but when pre-orders opened today people were quick to secure their devices for launch.

In fact, US customers were so keen to secure their new iPhone that the US Apple online store actually went down for two hours and 25 minutes, leaving customers understandably frustrated.

We’ve also noticed that UK carriers and network providers’ websites were struggling a bit under the pressure today. However, they are still showing stock for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, so head to your provider if you’re looking to pick one up for launch.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both run on the new 640bit Apple A8 processor with the M8 motion co-processor. They have 8-megapixel iSight cameras in the rear, with the 6 Plus boasting optical image stabilisation over the iPhone 6’s digital.

The front-facing FaceTime camera has been upgraded to 1.2-megapixels.

As with the iPhone 5S, both models have the Touch ID fingerprint sensor built in and now both handsets come with NFC for mobile payment and Apple Pay compatibility.
