The wait is finally over. Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will finally hit the Indian market tonight. The device will be available for purchase across 24 cities in India through Apple Premium Resellers, multi-brand retail stores, as well as online retail stores.
Those who pre-ordered the smartphones earlier this month will be the first ones to get their hands on the smartphone tonight. Amazon India is already said to have shipped the first batch of smartphones to buyers who pre-ordered. If you plan on buying the smartphone tonight in places like Delhi or Mumbai, you can check out iZenica in Noida, Uniworld in Gurgaon, Imagine in Saket and TMS in Connaught Place. In Mumbai, you can pick up an iPhone 6 or a iPhone 6 Plus from Maple in Bandra or High Street Phoenix in Lower Parel.
Apple seems to be geared up for tonight’s launch with recent reports indicating that it has shipped around 55,000 units to India ahead of the launch. Pre-orders for the new iPhones have crossed 21,000, so Apple is ensuring there are enough units in stock to last the expected weekend rush.
