Apple’s new iPhone 6s is poised to take most of the world by storm — and the rest by mail.

The company claims that its latest gadget, which had its initial launch on Friday, should be available in 130 countries by the end of the year, and our survey of regional Apple home pages gives us a pretty good idea of what the big board in Cupertino’s war room might look like. Check it out below.

Apple is already looking ahead to how the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will take over the world, according to our survey of individual countries’ region-specific Apple sites.

If you don’t live in one of the first 11 countries that received the new phones on Friday, you may not have long to wait, as our findings reveal the next 105 or so places Apple plans to sell the 6s. Check out the map below to see when it’s coming to your neighborhood if it hasn’t already.

We’re all pretty excited about the upcoming release of the iPhone 6s, Apple’s latest and shiniest hardware. And it seems that some people are so excited about the new phone that it makes them forget a bunch of things — like what an original iPhone looks like.

Kimmel sent an interviewer out on the street, where he presented passersby with the original, 2007 iPhone, told them it was a demo version of the 6s, and asked them how the “new” phone looks to them. You can see the cringeworthy results in the video below.
