If 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.
