After a large second launch wave earlier in October, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus today have expanded to seven new countries: India, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Malaysia, Malta, Montenegro, and South Africa. The launch follows the announcement of Apple's partnership with India-based retail chain Croma, which will see the tech company test out a few store-within-a-store locations in the country starting in November. Until the Apple Shops open, customers can purchase a new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus at any Apple Authorized Reseller or local carrier in India and other launch countries.
Turkey was originally slated to see the iPhone 6s launch today as well, but Apple delayed the release by a week due to the recent terrorist bombings in the country. After today's release, the next iPhone launch wave falls on October 23 in the following countries: Belarus, Guam, Moldova, Serbia, South Korea, Ukraine, and Turkey. Those in Thailand will be able to pre-order their devices on October 23, but the new smartphones won't officially launch there until October 30.
