PSA: You can now reserve your iPhone 6s/Plus for Friday pickup in six European countries


If you’ve been waiting impatiently for your chance to get your hands on an iPhone 6s/Plus, you’re in luck if you live in Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Sweden or Switzerland. Apple’s website in each of the six countries is now allowing access to its Reserve and Pickup program, allowing you to select your chosen model online before picking it up from your nearest Apple Store when they go on sale on Friday.

Note that you will need government-issued photo ID to collect your shiny new iPhone, and will need to collect within the 30-minute time-slot selected.

The six countries offering the reservation facility are among 36 countries to receive the new iPhones this Friday. The full list is Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Maldives, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan.

Sales in Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates follow the next day, with India, Malaysia and Turkey joining them on October 16th. Apple says the new iPhones will be on sale in over 130 countries by the end of the year.

Apple sold more than 13 million iPhones in the opening weekend. If you’re wondering whether to join them, you can check out my iPhone 6s diary and a video of the best 3D Touch features. If you know you want the new phone but can’t decide between the 6s and the 6s Plus, our comparison video and opinion piece may be of help.
