Anyone who’s broken their iPhone within the past week or two, and wants to stay within the Apple ecosystem, probably has their sights set on either the new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. As with any new iPhone release, however, hordes of people wanting to upgrade all but guarantees long waits for the devices.

For its part, Apple hopes the new iPhones’ larger screens—the iPhone 6 measures 4.7 inches, while the iPhone 6 Plus clocks in at an impressive 5.5 inches—will draw away customers who previously went for the ultra-large “phablets” produced by Android-based manufacturers such as Samsung.
