Iconic tech giant Apple will unveil its latest iphone 6s and iphone 6s plus on 16th October in India. This will be the fastest roll-out ever for the Indian market came less than a month after the latest model is available globally.
This is a part of the 49-country roll-out the company has planned in October. The countries include Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and Turkey. While pricing details have not been revealed, we expect an announcement closer to the date. Another 130 countries will be added to the list before the end of the year.
Apple said on Monday it had sold more than 13 million iPhone 6s and 6s Pluses during their first weekend of availability in 12 markets, setting a record for its marquee product. The availability of the new device that compete with the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, will enable the US-based firm to cash in on the upcoming festive season.
The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus have the same overall dimensions as the previous versions, but with new technologies under the hood. One of the key new features is called “3D touch,” which responds to pressure exerted on the screen to allow users to look inside messages and applications.
Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, in an official statement. This is a 30% jump over the 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus that were sold on the first weekend after release last year
