Apple is yet to issue press invitations for its fall media event. But multiple reports suggest that the tech giant will hold the iPhone 6S launch event on Wednesday, September 9. As if that was not enough, new reports coming out of Germany and Japan claim that Apple will start accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus on Friday, September 11, while the devices will hit the store shelves on September 18.
Germany and Japan expect the iPhone 6S to arrive on Sept.18
Germany and Japan are among countries that receive the newest Apple products at the same time as the United States. German website Macerkopf has learned from its “mobile circles” that two of the three largest German wireless carriers have started preparing for Sept.18 launch of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. That’s in line with Apple’s past iPhone launch timelines.
A few days ago, Deutsche Telekom kicked off reservations for the new iPhones. Customers who sign up will get their iPhone 6S or 6S Plus directly at the doorstep. Meanwhile, citing Japanese media, ITHome reports that the devices will be announced on Sept.9, with pre-orders set to begin on Sept.11. The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus will then go for sale in Japan a week later on Friday, Sept.18.
iPhone 6S beats iPad Air 2 in benchmark tests
Separately, Dutch website TechTastic claims that the new iPhones would be available in the Netherlands on Sept.26. Dutch customers get the new Apple products quickly after they are launched in main markets. Last year, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus arrive in the Netherlands a week after the phones went for sale in the U.S. and other major markets.
The iPhone 6S recently appeared on the Geekbench Brower benchmark. The benchmark listing suggests that the phone features 2GB RAM and a 1.5GHz tri-core A9 processor. The iPhone 6S outperformed the iPad Air 2 in single-core and multi-core performance. Both the upcoming iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are expected to feature a 12-megapixel main camera with OIS, iOS 9, and Force Touch technology.
