Apple India runs out of iPhone 6 as nation shops in festive spirit

Well, if you don’t have an iPhone, you don’t have an iPhone. You can still have it, but only after a few days. The first batch of 55,000 iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus units shipped to India are sold out. Prospective buyers will now have to wait for a minimum of three days before the stocks are replenished.

Sources at Apple India confirmed that three of the four authorised distributors had run out of the iPhones 6 series, which was launched in the country on October 16 midnight.

The premium smartphone is sold through Redington, Ingram Micro, Rashi Peripherals and Reliance.

The entire 55,000-unit batch was sold within 72 hours. Apple plans to ship another 25,000 units in the next few days. “We take a few days for the iPhones to be brought here, a minimum of three days for new stock,” said a source from Apple India. Store sources indicate that the wait may well be longer if the stocks do not reach in time.

A Samsung spokesperson said the company has sold more units of its Galaxy Note 4, which was also launched on the midnight of October 16, than iPhone6 and 6Plus.

Apple and Samsung are trying to cash in on the festival season in India to push their latest premium products, priced in excess of R 50,000.
