Apple iPhone 6 Plus Shipments Delayed Due to Record Orders, Says Reports

If you are looking to buy the more larger variant of the two new iPhones, there might be some bad news for you. Apparently, customers may have to wait three to four weeks to get their hands on Apple Inc's iPhone 6 Plus. This has been due to the large number of shipment orders for the handset.

Apple recently unveiled both the handsets at its recently concluded event. Apart from two different size variants for the new iPhone, Apple also unveiled its new Watch offering for users.

"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," spokeswoman Trudy Muller said, as reported by Reuters.

But Apple has had a history with supply issues for iPhones. "Apple routinely grapples with iPhone supply constraints, particularly in years that involve a smartphone re-design. The latest iPhones come with larger screens and some analysts had anticipated that production issues may keep a lid on initial runs."
