It’s already Friday, October 7 in New Zealand and Australia, which means iPhone 14 Plus launch day. Customers in Australia and New Zealand are always the first to get a new device due to time zone differences, and the new iPhone 14 Plus is no exception.
The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max already launched on September 16, but the iPhone 14 Plus was delayed. Prior to the debut of the iPhone 14 model, there were rumors about a manufacturing issue that would cause production delays for the 6.7-inch device, and it turned out to be true.
Measuring 6.7 inches like the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the iPhone 14 Plus replaces the previous generation 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini in the lineup. The iPhone mini didn’t sell well, leading Apple to opt to discontinue the smaller size.
Australians and New Zealanders who order iPhone 14 Plus will receive their shipments and will soon share pictures and first impressions on social media networks, Reddit and MacRumor forum. The iPhone 14 Plus is not expected to be as popular as the iPhone 14 Pro model, as Apple adds a variety of interesting features to the Pro device that are not available on the standard iPhone 14 model.
Since New Zealand doesn’t have an Apple Store, customers in Australia will be the first to pick up the iPhone 14 Plus. Stock in Australia will give us an idea of what we can expect from other stores around the world, but we don’t anticipate huge demand for the iPhone 14 Plus model.
Following New Zealand and Australia, sales of the iPhone 14 Plus will begin in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and finally, North America. With this launch, the iPhone season is coming to a close, and we’ll now turn our attention to the late 2022 product debut. We’re expecting new iPad Pro models, MacBook Pro and Mac mini updates, and new budget iPads.
