Despite being sold out online, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available for walk-in purchase on September 25th, except for customers in five unlucky states.
Apple revealed in a press press release that customers in Hong Kong, China, Japan and five U.S.states won’t be able to walk-in to a local Apple Store at 8 a.m. local time on Friday, September 25th to buy the best iPhone Apple’ ever created.
Here are the five states that won’t sell you an iPhone on launch day:
- New Hampshire
Why isn’t Apple letting people in these states walk-in to stores on September 25th to buy the iPhone 6s? It’s all thanks to the so-called ‘sharks’ that take advantage of the tax-free iPhone sales and resale the devices overseas at a huge markup.
Apple is no longer taking reservations for the iPhone 6s, so if you didn’t already get a spot or pre-order online, there’s no way to get a new from Apple on launch day.
Online orders for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are already sold out, with shipping times on most versions pushed back 3 – 4 weeks or longer. Thanks to the unprecedented demand, Apple says it’s on track to beat last year’s sales record, so if you want to walk-in to your store and buy one on the 25th, you better get there early.
