Cue the racist xenophobic and business-stupid complaints about Apple starting to sell in other counties before meeting the demand of every white person who wants a phone first.

Aaaaaand there it is
It isn't racist, it's common sense. If I pre-ordered on Sept 12th, or even ordered in late September, I'd be pissed if someone got theirs before me that didn't order until late October.

How was that comment racist? You DO realize there are Asian people in the US, right? And black people? And every other race and color. Not wanting the US models sold elsewhere isn't being racist. You're ridiculous. One of those that cry racism over nothing.

And yet stock of *ANY* iPhone 6+ is totally nonexistent.

From looking at stock levels in istocknow, this could be one of the worst managed launches Apple has ever done. And there are how many threads with people whining about their iPhones taking so long to arrive?

iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, I still haven't decided yet. :confused:

Wish they had 32Gb base model, now instead have to spend more for 64Gb.
Seriously what fits in a 16Gb version anymore? Greedy much :apple: ?

I know a few people with 8GB and 16GB devices who have had to delete apps and photos to update to iOS 8.
Or just attach it to your computer and update thru iTunes. No need to delete anything, more reliable and faster. Who's fault is that that "people" don't know a thing about their devices?:)
