Delays Ahead for iPhone 6?

Delays Ahead for iPhone 6If you’re counting down the days until the iPhone 6 arrives in September, your countdown just got a little longer.

Despite plans to still unveil the next-gen flagship smartphone next month, Apple may not have the product inventory needed to launch until mid-October.

A source within Apple’s retail chain tells MacRumors the iPhone 6 won’t ready consumers until October 14th.

“Apple launching the iPhone 6 on a Tuesday would be a change from past years, as the company has launched previous iPhones and most new hardware on a Friday,” the report reads, “However, the source claims that high customer demand and an ample supply due to a large production effort will motivate Apple to start iPhone 6 sales earlier in the week.”

As it now stands, Apple won’t unveil the next-gen iPad, iPad mini, or iWatch until later in the year, likely right before the holiday shopping rush.

Much better if it gets delayed because iphone5c and iphone5s is just released a few months ago. Still new, though. And it doesn't matter how long iphone6 will be launched, people would still avail it anytime they want. Apple is Apple. People can't say no to the BEST :)
