Smart, Globe reveal iPhone 6 availability in PH

A week after their respective registration pages for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus went live, Smart Communications and Globe Telecom have announced that Apple’s new handsets will be launched on November 14.

That’s earlier than the iPhone availability in the Philippines the past two years. Recall that the 5s and 5c were rolled out on November 15, 2013. The iPhone 5, on the other hand, was launched on December 15, 2012.

If you’re a Smart subscriber, you can preorder any one of the new iPhone 6 models starting November 7 at this site. Globe customers can register here.

However, both telcos have not revealed their postpaid and prepaid pricing for the devices yet. We believe Smart and Globe will announce their offers next week, though.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have helped Apple boost its profit 13 percent to $8.5 billion and revenue to $42.1 billion in the fiscal fourth quarter ending September 27, 2014. The devices are Apple’s best-selling iPhones thus far.
