Just days after Apple's live stream of the iPhone 6 unveiling was marred by technical difficulties, Apple was spooked again by gremlins. In some countries, the online Apple Store was down, preventing consumers in the affected countries from pre-ordering the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus.
As late as 4am Eastern Time Friday morning in the U.S., the Apple Store was down in the U.S., Canada and India. Some were able to circumvent the problem by turning to the Apple Store app. Meanwhile, things were running smoothly for those pre-ordering the iPhone 6 in markets like the U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore.
