iPhone availability Stories September 10, 2014

Apple announced the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus yesterday with pre-orders for the new phones on the four major carriers kicking off on September 12th and both new iPhones launching on September 19th. Apple, however, does not directly share availability for its new iPhones on regional carriers.

We’ve reached out to the more than two dozen regional and prepaid carriers that supported the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, though, and put together a comprehensive list of when each carrier plans to release the new iPhone 6 models. US Cellular and C Spire, the fifth and sixth largest wireless carriers in the United States after the big four national carriers, have both announced plans to carry the new iPhone 6 models on launch day next Friday, and more than a half dozen regional carriers have already announced availability starting September 26th. expand full story

New iPhones hit nine regional U.S. carriers on October 1st

While the iPhone was available from the four main U.S. carriers from 20th September,  those who want to stick with smaller regional carriers have so far had to wait. 1st October is now known to be the magic date for nine carriers, with others expected to announce shortly.

The nine companies who have so far announced that they will have both the iPhone 5s and 5c available from that date (via MacRumors) are:
