Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are still rolling out globally, though both phones made their debut in the United States last month. Following the first launch, Apple also rolled out the phone to 36 new countries during the month of October, including in major markets such as China. Now, according to data spotted by 9to5Mac, Apple is set to launch the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is several new countries later this month.
The site noticed information for carrier releases from Apple partners in several countries, including Nigeria, Kenya, Lebanon, Guatemala, Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia, the Philippines and Brazil. The news also follows reports last week that Apple had been discussing a release in Iran with carrier partners, though its unclear if that roll-out will also start this month. 9to5Mac said the expected release date is Nov. 14 for the aforementioned markets. Apple’s expansion into these countries is particularly noteworthy as it continues to battle lower-cost phone makers, particularly Android OEMs, that currently dominate the landscape in emerging smartphone markets.
Apple hasn’t released anything official on the Nov. 14 release date or detailed each roll-out country. It’s possible there are other countries that are also gearing up to launch the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus this month, and we’ll let you know if and when Apple provides something more official.
