During Apple’s earnings call in October, Tim Cook described Apple supply as not being “on the same planet” when it came to matching demand for the iPhone 6. “It’s very difficult to gauge demand without first finding the balance,” he noted.
Well, jump forward a few months and it seems that balance has finally been achieved — since Apple’s online store in the U.S. is now showing all capacities, colors and carriers as in-stock for both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
The recently-released unlocked, SIM-free iPhone 6 models are also showing availability within one business day.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were both enormous successes for Apple upon their launch in September, racking up record-shattering sales in excess of 10 million units in their first weekend alone.
Apple was so keen to keep iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices flying out of the door to meet demand that it reportedly slashed its own profit margins to encourage supplier Foxconn to build them faster by offering more money per device.
Production on other lower-priority Apple devices was also moved to smaller manufacturers in order for suppliers like Pegatron to focus on building the iPhone 6.
Perhaps now we’ll finally find out the respective popularity of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, without delays to affect customers’ decision-making!
