Apple report record numbers for pre-orders of the new iPhone models.

Apple has seen record first day pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The company claims advanced orders for their latest phones soared past four million units within the first 24 hours following the iPhone 6 reveal on 9th September. Due to this, Apple warn that not all customers who have made pre-orders will be getting their new phones on launch day.

"Demand for the new iPhones exceeds the initial pre-order supply and 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," the company said.

"Additional supply of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available to walk-in customers on Friday, September 19 at 8:00 a.m. local time at Apple retail stores. Customers are encouraged to arrive early or order online from the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com) to pickup in-store or receive an estimated delivery date."

Apple new iPhone was revealed to be coming in two different sizes with the standard iPhone 6 sporting a 4.7 inch display with a 5.5 inch screen carried by the iPhone 6 Plus. Both models feature new 'Retina Display HD’ with the Plus variant able to display a full 1080p (1920x1080) resolution.

Apple also revealed their long-rumoured smart watch this month, which is due to arrive on the market in early 2015.
