Shipping delays for the iPhone 6 Plus in the UK

By Steven Hawthorn on 15/09/14

Despite many Britons pre-ordering the iPhone 6 Plus, it seems Apple fans will not receive their new phone for up to a month due to shipping delays, according to reports. 

In the UK, customers who have pre-ordered the iPhone 6 Plus ahead of its release on the 19th September have been told to expect the new Apple mobile between three and four weeks. 

The shipping delays in the UK have been revealed shortly after Apple saw the highest number of pre-orders for the iPhone 6 Plus in the US. 

The iPhone 6, which boasts a smaller 4.7-inch screen, is also expected to see delays between seven and ten working days. 

UK mobile operators, including Three, are warning their customers that the new models will be delayed by up to almost a month. 

In the US, Apple is notifying customers they may have to also wait up to a month for the iPhone Plus. 

An Apple spokeswoman, Trudy Muller said to Reuters: “Response to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has been incredible, with a record number of pre-orders overnight. Pre-orders are currently available online or through the Apple Store App.”

Despite the delays expected to disappoint Apple fans, the mobile manufacturer has not commented on what has caused the shipping delays. 

However, the huge demand in the US and the UK for the two new models could be a potential indicator. 

Last week, Apple announced the arrival of the iPhone 6 following rumours and leaked images working their way across cyber space.

The manufacturer presented the new models to the Apple family last week, with consumers given the choice of either the iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch screen or the iPhone 6 Plus with 5.5-inch display.
