iPhone 6 Pre-Order Singapore from 12 Sep

Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier today and not much surprises all around. The iPhone is now available in bigger screen dimensions with 4.7″ and 5.5″ respectively.

In addition, the iPhone 6 Plus has a higher density screen at 1080p resolution. The other difference is that the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilisation (OIS) while the iPhone makes do with a software implementation.

Good news for those clamoring for the latest iPhone are in for a treat with Singapore being one of the nine countries that will be able to buy the iPhone at the official launch date of 19 September 2014. The other eight countries are United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan.

This also means that there is going to be a hot demand for iPhone from neighbouring countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and China. I thought Apple would be making big plans for the China market but that have not materialised yet. iPhone 6 will see significant demand from resellers looking to profit a quick one from Apple fans in these countries. Hence, expect pre-orders to disappear fast.

Update – 12 Sept 2014: Advanced pre-orders for the new iPhone through Apple Store will be a global worldwide launch event at the same time. Apple has slated it to be 12 AM Pacific Time, as per Cupertino. This means Singapore 12 September at 15:00 (GMT+8). The iPhone 6 is looking to be Apple’s biggest launch event ever. Apple has reportedly asked manufacturing partners to produce about 70 million to 80 million units of its larger screen iPhones by December 30, which is about 30 percent to 40 percent more iPhones than last year initial orders for the iPhone 5s and 5C. Initial countries receiving the iPhone are still limited, which would see demand from big countries e.g. Indonesia and China.
