Friday is the first day of delivery for the new iPhone 6, and there are already 4 million orders (or more) put in to receive one. That’s going to require a lot of iPhones, and Apple is doing its best to get as many of them onto American shores before the big launch as they can. Well, the airplanes are arriving in America, loaded down with iPhones from China, and it’s quite a sight. Here’s what a plane loaded down with 195,000 iPhones looks like.
That’s just one 747. There are bigger planes out there, and they are also loaded down with iPhones, to the tune of some 30 big plane flights a day coming from China to the United States. That’s all to get ready for one big day, driven by Apple’s latest device. That’s a staggering amount of phones, and it still won’t be enough to satisfy all the preorders. There’ll be people waiting until October for their iPhones, no doubt about it.Technorati Tags: air plane, airplanes, apple, apple iphone, apple iphone 6, iphone, iphone 6, iphone 6 by airplane, iphone 6 shipments, supply chain
