Apparently the iPhone still has serious demand in China, even after all of the phones that have been smuggled over via human-mules. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus go on sale in China on October 17th but that hasn’t stopped carriers from accepting pre-orders. Over 2 million pre-orders!
Considering the iPhone isn’t technically available for pre-orders until October 10th, it is quite impressive that they carriers have received over 2 million pre-orders in just the first six hours. To our that in perspective, Apple had about 5 million pre-orders in the first 24 hours with 9 countries.
