New iPhones to reach SA by year-end
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ will be available in more than 115 countries by the end of the year.
JOHANNESBURG - Apple Inc. said that it's recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus phones will be available in more than 115 countries by the end of the year.
The iPhones will arrive in 36 additional countries and territories across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa by the end of this month, Apple said.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be made available in China, the world's biggest smartphone market, and India from 17 October.
Other countries where the phones will be launched include Israel, Czech Republic, Greenland, Poland, South Africa, Bahrain and Kuwait, making this the fastest rollout of iPhones, the company said.
Reuters had earlier reported that the iPhone 6 will be sold in China from 17 October, after rigorous regulatory scrutiny led to Apple reassuring the Chinese government that the smartphones did not have security backdoors through which US agencies can access users' data.
