As we reported during the weekend, Apple has received record first-day pre-orders of its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, with over four million in the first 24 hours, meaning many customers will have to wait for their new phones.

Apple said additional supply of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus would be available to walk-in customers on Friday, September 19 at 8:00 a.m. local time at Apple retail stores.
