Amid much fanfare last week, the Cupertino-based tech giant rolled out two versions of its iconic smartphone, but with a new twist. The iPhone 6 is available in the standard compact size, while the iPhone 6 Plus features a larger screen that many observers have compared to Samsung's increasingly ubiquitous Galaxy Note.
"Demand for the new iPhones exceeds the initial pre-order supply," Apple said in a release. "While a significant amount will be delivered to customers beginning on Friday and throughout September, many iPhone pre-orders are scheduled to be delivered in October."
According to data compiled by CNBC, most carriers won't have the device, which was unveiled last week, available for at least a month.
