If you live in one of six European countries where the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is scheduled to launch on Oct. 9, Apple is ready for you to schedule your in-store reservation for your new handset. These countries include Belgium, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
Most iPhone 6s models are available for in-store reservation, but supplies of the iPhone 6s Plus is very limited at most locations. European customers will choose their model, color, and storage size, making a reservation at an Apple Store near them for in-store pickup on Oct. 9.
The new handsets are launching in 40 more countries on the same date, but no in-store reservations are accepted in those nations as of this writing. The additional countries include: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Maldives, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan.
When you make an in-store reservation, it’s a very convenient way to purchase and pick up your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. You get a 30-minute check-in window, and most locations have a special line for customers with reservations. It’s important to note that you can’t make a reservation for someone else; you have to bring a government-issued ID, only the person named on the appointment can pick up the iPhone. Reservations are limited to two per customer.
The success of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been modest so far, and it will be interesting to see how well sales perform in the latest batch of countries. Apple plans to launch the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in more than 130 countries by the end of 2015.
