iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus release delayed in China

It looks like Chinese Apple fans waiting to get their hands on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will have to wait a bit longer, as seems that Apple will miss the September 19 release date in that country. Apple apparently caught the three major national carriers, as well as their own store managers, off guard with news of the delay. While no reason for the delay was given, it likely has to do with Chinese regulatory approval, according to the New York Times:

The move set off consternation among Apple's partners in China, as well as with consumers who had been eagerly awaiting the introductions. Apple did not explain the delay, executives at the carriers said, but it appeared the phones had not received approval from Chinese regulators to go on sale.
