Apple announces 4 million pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Apple had announced their new smartphones, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus last week along with Apple Watch and their own NFC based payment system, the Apple Pay. Today, Apple has announced that they have received over 4 million pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

According to Walter Piecyk, an analyst at BTIG Research, this is roughly twice the number of pre-orders which were registered last year for the Apple iPhone 5.

Unfortunately, Apple hasn’t revealed individual pre-order numbers for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus but we are sure that the pre-orders for the iPhone 6 Plus would be higher.

The Apple iPhone 6 is expected to be priced in India for around Rs 53,500 for the 16GB storage variant while the iPhone 6 Plus is expected to be priced around Rs 62,500 when they get launched in India just before Diwali. Are you planning to buy the iPhone 6 when it releases in India next month?

Your long comment highlights many points

For me, a heart and diabetes patient, health kit is impressive and for me as freelancing consultant, Apple Pay is important

With these critical requirements met, my wait for suitable iPhone is over and I would be buying one for sure
