Customers are now sending in their preorders for Apple's upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which will be released on Sept. 25.
A report by Apple news website Apple Insider reveals that customers are flocking to sign up for the rose gold option for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, as the new color offering by Apple is proving its popularity.
The information was acquired by Apple Insider from a blog that tracks the shipping times for preordered units of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, with the latest information at the time of writing being from Sept. 12, 2:00 a.m. PT.
The first devices to have the Sept. 25 release date for preordered units pushed back are the rose gold models, Apple Insider noted. The 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6s units under Verizon and all iPhone 6s models for T-Mobile in the color are already dated to be shipped within two to three weeks. All other iPhone 6s models are still slated to ship on Sept. 25 for United States customers.
However, in Canada, the rose gold iPhone 6s units in 64GB and 128GB capacities, along with all rose gold iPhone 6s units in all memory capacities for the United Kingdom and Japan, already have pushed back shipping dates of two to three weeks.
Other notable iPhone 6s delays include the gray 128GB iPhone 6s in the United Kingdom and 128GB iPhone 6s in all other colors in Japan.
In China, however, there are no longer any iPhone 6s units that are expected to ship out on Sept. 25. All colors and capacities for the country have already been pushed back to two to three weeks of waiting time.
Customers who are looking to preorder iPhone 6s Plus units, however, will have to fall behind an ever-growing line. All iPhone 6s Plus colors and capacities across all regions covered by the blog have been pushed back even further to three to four weeks until the units ship, showing the immense popularity of the larger version of the flagship device of Apple.
It is an even worse situation in Hong Kong, where many buyers from China are choosing to have their orders shipped due to the less strict tax regime in the country. Less than one hour after preorders went up, both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus had their shipping times already delayed to four to six weeks. At the time of writing, the devices are completely sold out, with no more preorders or reservations being accepted.
