iPhone-6-Italy

When Apple announced its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models earlier this week, it only provided preorder and shipping info for a handful of initially launch countries. The company has now confirmed a second wave of iPhone 6 launches for a long list of countries will kick off on September 26.

Many of Apple’s websites abroad are now listing the September 26 order date. Here’s 20+ countries we’ve found so far:

Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.

Additionally, Apple’s site for the United Arab Emirates lists a date of September 27. While Apple is accepting orders in these countries starting September 26, some carriers are accepting preorders before that date. It’s unclear when exactly devices will ship in these countries. 

Apple announced during its iPhone launch event earlier this week that it planned one of the fastest new iPhone rollouts ever with 115 countries expected to get the device by year’s end. It also announced preorders for customers in the US, France, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, United Kingdom, Australia, and Japan would start this Friday, Sept. 12 with the devices shipping on September 19.

We’ll continue to update the list as we find more. Let us know in the comments below if Apple’s website in your country is listing a launch date.
