There is still no confirmation about the release date

Congratulations to the the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both of which won the China Compulsory Certification this week as stated by the state press agency Xinhua. This China Compulsory Certification, commonly known as the CCC, would equal to the Underwriters Laboratories certification in the U.S. However, in order to go on sale, the iPhones will have to have their network access licenses.

These licenses are a way of confirming that the devices are compatible with the mobile networks and they are issued by the Telecom Equipment Certification Center which is China's equivalent of the U.S. FCC. There has been no confirmation about when the latter will be given but generally the devices go on sale within days or weeks after receiving approval. No one had been expecting this delay because China’s market has become an important part of Apple’s balance sheet. This also comes as surprising considering that China was a day-one launch country for the iPhone 5s.

We have also been speculating that the delay could possibly be due to the the iPhone 6 series's new radios which provide support for a significantly higher number of LTE bands than past iPhones. China is not alone in the iPhone 6. India is most likely not going to see the iPhone 6 till November.
