Apple Inc is set to bring its iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C to about 50 countries around the world through two release dates. On October 25, the technology firm would start selling the new iPhones to over 30 territories, while the new devices would be available in 15 additional nations by November 1.
The company made history when it released the two new iPhones at the same time on September 20, following an anticipated launch date on September 10. The combined sales of the two devices reached up to 9 million during their initial weekend selling dates. That was a record for any iPhone launch in history, although some skeptics assert that there are two iPhones selling simultaneously this time.
According to market analysts, this announcement may be a clear sign that supplies of both smartphones have already ramped up following the shortages during the initial days after release. This may indicate that Apple has already addressed problems regarding the speed of production of the new handsets.
October 25 release
In the initial iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C release, the new devices were first sold in the US, the UK, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Japan, and China. That release marked the first time for Apple to roll out a device in China simultaneously with the US release. This could be a logical move as the Chinese smartphone market remains as the biggest in the world.
But other Apple devices fans from other parts of the globe have been asking when they could get access to the new iPhones. On October 25, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C would debut in other markets including Austria, Belgium, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, South Korea, Switzerland, Thailand, and Taiwan.
November 1 release
On the November 1 release date, the new iPhones would be available in Guam, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Turkey, among others. It is expected the overall sales of the two iPhones would continue to rise following the release dates in other nations.
To date, iPhones are among the most significant products of Apple. The smartphones currently account for up to 50% of the company’s regular revenue. On October 28, the technology firm is scheduled to release its financial results for the quarter that ended in September.
