Apple fans in India will have to wait just a month more to get their hands on the newly-launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which was unveiled amidst much fanfare in the United States on Tuesday.
According to the Apple India website, the thinner-slicker versions of the ultra-popular iPhone series will hit Indian stores on 17 October, contrary to speculations that the phone would arrive sooner by 26 September.
India could beat several other countries in bringing iPhone 6 to its shores, as the company had announced that the new phone will be available in 115 countries by the end of the year.

However, Indian Apple fans will, of course, have to wait longer than their counterparts in USA, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan, where the phone will hit stores on 19 September.
This could also be the shortest wait for India's Apple fans compared to the time gap between the launch and the India release for the earlier phones.
The new phones have been pitched as the 'biggest advancement' in the history of the series.
"iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the biggest advancements in iPhone history," Apple CEO Tim Cook said proudly at the launch at the Flint Centre for the Performing Arts' in Cupertino, California, USA
The new iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch Retina® HD display with 1334 x 750p resolution display, and boasts of a new iOS v8.0 powered by the 20-nanometer class based second generation 64-bit A8 chipset, that is said to 25-percent faster (50-percent faster graphics too) than the A7 in iPhone 5S.

On the other hand, the iPhone 6 Plus marks the Steve Jobs-founded company's foray into the world of phablets, promising to give choking competition to Samsung. While many of its specs are similar to iPhone 6, it boasts of a 5.5- inch LED-backlit IPS screen with Retina HD (aka full HD) with 1920x1080p resolution with pixel density of 401 ppi (pixels per inch).
