Demand For The iPhone 6 Plus Is Stronger Than Apple Expected
According to sources Apple’s supply chain is moving some production away from the iPhone 6 to concentrate on the iPhone 6 Plus. The move will see iPhone 6 shipments in the second half reduced to be 3-4 million units lower than the original expectation. Since first launching on September 19, the wait time for the iPhone 6 Plus has continued to lag that of the smaller model. In the US for example, most iPhone 6 units are available to ship within seven to 10 business days. Orders placed for the iPhone 6 Plus show availability of 3 to 4 weeks. The shift in production to the iPhone 6 Plus comes just 10 days before Apple releases both phones in China, where reservations for the new phones have already topped 4 million units.
