Vodafone, EE, O2 opened pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus this morning, but only Vodafone held up in the face of what was thought to be an avalanche of orders.
While mobile networks often reveal UK prices and tariffs for new iPhone directly after its launch, this year traders chose to remain shy in those details until they opened pre-orders today.
However, there is more of a wait ahead for potential buyers of the latest handsets from Apple. Probably due to the huge interest in new iPhone6, the whole website EE has been down for maintenance since it was declared on Twitter that he was taking pre-orders, while the page O2 iPhone 6 has been down for hours because his "online store is very busy," according to a post on the site.
The Vodafone site is configured and is offering the 16GB iPhone 6, no upfront cost on a two-year contract with data plans network of 10 GB and 20 GB 4G, which respectively cost £ 53.50 and £ 58.50 per month.

The equivalent of 20 GB costs £ 63.50 a month, also with an upfront £ 19.
But given the apparent interest in the iPhone 6 Plus with larger storage, buyers may be more interested in pricing for the 64GB and 128GB options.
The 64 GB iPhone 6 Plus contract 4G 10GB two years will cost £ 58.50 per month with a £ 99 fee for additional advance. The equivalent of 20 GB costs £ 63.90 per month with an upfront fee £ 49, while Option 7 GB costs £ 53.50 per month with an initial contribution of £ 129 4GB option costs £ 48.50 per month with a share of 179 pounds once.

While the EA site remains down at the time of publication, EE has provided prices for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Shoppers at the Apple store can turn into a three starter packs and O2 for £ 15 30 days to provide voice and data. Three has yet to open up pre-orders, but is expected to do so this afternoon.
While sites mobile networks may have had problems in the iPhone 6 days before the order, own Apple store online is maintained. However, although buyers were able to place their orders through the website, some models are now only available with a delay of several weeks.
Delivery delays can mean so much a company could not build enough of a product over time, or that the demand for it is underestimated (perhaps deliberately to generate interest and an air of scarcity). If it's the latter, Apple could be on a winner with the iPhone 6 Plus, particularly golden version: the website of the United Kingdom of Apple is reporting a delay of release three to four weeks for versions of 16GB, 64GB and Plus 128GB iPhone 6 in gold.
For those longing for a silver or gray iPhone 6 Plus space, there is less of a wait ahead: Apple reports seven to 10 days delivery business for both colors in the three storage options.
Apple expects to release the iPhone 6 gray space in the official availability date, on Friday September 19 for 16GB and 128GB models, while the 64GB model will be delivered within seven to 10 business days.
