We showed you the five best smartphones still to come in 2014 back in July, and the iPhone 6 was on that list. The wait is over, now, and we are receiving endless queries about iPhone 6 Availability. Can you get your hands on one easily? And is it really worth the potential wait? The short answer is yes for both. Stick around for a while and have a read – we have information about iPhone 6 availability and user reviews. One of our key IT Support engineers was actually one of the very first adopters of the handset. Apple attracted a record number of pre-orders, while in London on launch day, there were reported queues of almost half a mile.
Is the 5s just as good as the 6?
Having been working in the telecoms business for the entirety of my short career, I can certainly see more plus points than negatives. The big question is whether the larger screen is just too large. Our very own IT Support Engineer, Duncan said “The screen is fantastic, bigger, sharper, and brighter. Typing and reading emails is easier“. So clear improvements on the last model and the device does sit comfortably in the hand and has a smaller display than the relatively popular Sony Xperia Z and Nexus 5 devices. Its larger screen and high prices have sparked mixed opinions on social media, however, with some saying that Apple are slowly blurring the line between their own handsets and the many forms of Samsung Galaxy devices. But is that a bad thing when the Galaxy handsets have been the only handset to truly challenge the iPhone for desirability?
The iPhone has always been praised for its productivity and the way iOS 8 works means it is even less time-consuming for employees to set up phones for work. Duncan added “Even before I got this phone I was of the opinion that iPhones are the easiest for setting up email and remote connections. I have a ton of remote support tools on it which allows me to diagnose and help people from wherever I am”. I didn’t have to work in telecoms for long before I realised that the handsets organisations want for their employees isn’t the one with the fanciest appearance or the one with the largest range of apps, it’s the one that fits their business model the best. Whether it’s a Windows phone so they can seamlessly link their Windows PCs to it, or BlackBerrys for the added security, there’s always a phone that suits a company the best. In my opinion, although at added cost, the iPhone encompasses enough factors that it can suit any business set-up. Once connected to a network, only basic settings need to be configured before being able to smoothly incorporate the needs of an organisation’s employee without needing timely and costly IT Support.
In terms of availability, whilst you cannot walk into an Apple store and just ask for one at the counter, you can make a reservation and pick one up same day. The process is actually really simple – just follow this link to select you nearest Apple store and you’re ready to go: https://www.apple.com/uk/retail/iphone/ . If you want to avoid the hefty cost to purchase outright then the answer is to resign your mobile contract in order to get the iPhone6 included in the deal– we have the iPhone 6 on next day delivery, whilst the 6 Plus is available on back order and will generally take no more than 2-3 weeks to arrive. I’ve been kept incredibly busy recently getting in orders and we’ve not had any problems with availability.
