Apple Fever: Ufone Registers Record iPhone 6 Pre-Orders in First 12 Hours

iPhone fan-boys are on fire. Yesterday, we reported that Ufone is all ready to launch the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in Pakistan. The smartphones are expected to be available from 11th December, 2014 but Ufone already started the pre-order process yesterday.

In the first 12 hours of the announcement, Ufone received a staggering 2,000 plus pre-orders. That is one order every 20 seconds. Considering that the iPhones are high-end premium smartphones which are expected to cost over 80,000 PKR, this is an impressive feat to say the least.

Apple product launches are always a big deal but this time, carriers like Ufone are reportedly going to offer accidental warranty coverage and replacement plans which might have convinced even more people to sign up.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are unique products since this is the first time that Apple has changed its mantra on bigger displays on smartphones. The iPhone 6 comes with a 4.7 inch screen while the iPhone 6 Plus is firmly in the phablet territory with a 5.5 inch 1080p display.

Android might have the market share and it’s own fans but when it comes to adoption for new devices, few can match Apple and this news just highlights that fact.

    Ufone is only asking for details of customers online. 20,000 requests in no way means that 20,000 will be surely buying iPhones. I, myself requested to be contacted so that I could know about price and delivery time on time.

  • Badar

    These are not pre-orders…
    Whats wrong with ProPakistani???
    This is just a form submitted by every other person with NAME NIC ADRESS PHONE NUMBER thats it…thay have not avtually “Ordered” the phones…
    N for that case 20,000 is a wayyy low number.
    I myself submitted the form.

    • 20,000 or 2,000?

    • Mirza Moazzam Baig

      it’s 2000

  • Shoaib

    Data game is on between all Cellular 3G/4G Operators.Amazing sales on first day.

  • Saeed Baloch

    a huge fail IMO. apple sold 10 million iphones in first week after launching and here is what 2000 iphone plus in 12h. Xiaomi sold 200,000 handsets in india in just few secs. though iphone plus sales are 3x lower than iphone 6 but this is a shame for a company or may be ufones customers use 3310 :P

    • Tnt4ever

      ufone work good only on 3310

  • Technocrz!

    Although I bought my 6plus one month back with high price, but I’m happy that from next year it will be very easy to get new iPhone

      • Technocrz!

        Yes I’m using it as a clip

        • Clipper

          It is not a clip. It is for watching HD Clips.

      • Tnt4ever

        Yes samsung lover it bends, stay away from Apple ,

        You android lovers you cant afford to use Iphone.

        Just stay with creepy android phones.

        Can’t you see its only a single & fake video rotating aroung the web. Samsung always ready to do such cheap marketing tactics.

        Even it bends iphone with stay with it because other phone dont give that piece of mind & comfort thatvapple does.

        I am using i 6+ for last 40+ days its fucking awesome

        • Ahmed

          • Spb

            interestingly still your single quad or octa core Phone couldn’t beat any newly released iPhone sales worldwide, looser.

              Sales has got nothing to do with the argument we are making here. Maybe you ran out of things to argue with.

          • Adeel

            It’s have dual core processor with M6 co-motion quad core processor with the symbol of class, but you can’t understand all these things, you just enjoy your Qmobile

            • Ahmed

              “M6 co-motion quad core processor”, you see guys, that’s the IQ level of a typical iSheep.

              Dude it’s called a M7 motion co-processor which was introduced in the 5S, and it has nothing to do with being quadcore. It works with the main CPU which is dual-core.

              • Adeel

                Oh c’mon dude I already told you that you just enjoy your Qmobile,
                I am going to buy iPhone 6 with fingerprint scanner, pure IOS with zero lag, and you already know that IOS is found only in iPhone, and what can I say about android it’s easily found in 5k phone, as I mentioned earlier it’s all about class you just enjoy your Qmobile android phone

                • Ahmed

                  First a mediocre product and then your inferiority complex did the rest. Have a great time with your new device mate…and hey BTW I never had a Qmobile thing. I have a Nexus 6, which costs more than your 2012 phone if that’s your measure of “class”. Peace.

                  • Adeel

                    So dude enjoy your nexus 6 android phone
                    I am very happy with my IOS and windows phone 8.1 OS
