As well as coming to the UK, the iPhone 6 will be available in nine further territories on day one, including the US, Australia, Canada, France and Germany. The remaining day one iPhone 6 drop spots are Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico and Singapore.
The iPhone 6 is Apple’s latest smartphone offer and features an all new design.
The both the 6 and the 6 Plus feature new, slimline, curved metal form factors. Three iPhone 6 colours will be available at launch – silver, space grey and gold.
