(Photo : Reuters) Apple is preparing to launch a beta program for iOS users.
The iPhone 6 is the most popular of the two smartphones Apple has shipped this year, hitting 85 to 75 percent of customers in all regions, while the iPhone 6 Plus gets the other 25 to 15 percent.
It looks like another record breaking year for Apple might be upon us, according to Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. The analysis firm claim Apple's share in most European countries has grown over the past quarter, and sales in Asia and North America have continued to grow.

In the UK, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus managed to account for 39.5 percent of all sales in the country. Most of the new sales come from loyal Apple customers - 86 percent of previous iPhone owners bought the new iPhone 6.
France, Spain, Italy and Germany all had gains in iPhone 6 sales. Apple has not been such a dominant force in Europe over the years, several countries in the EU have over 90 percent Android market saturation.
In the UK in 2013, Windows Phone managed to hold over 10 percent of sales, Android had 70 percent and Apple managed to only hang on to 15 percent. It looks like 2014 was a big hit for Apple in the UK.
China also had an increase in sales for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Early reports claim the two smartphones sold over 30 million units in the region alone, but Xiaomi's Redmi Note and Redmi continue to sit first and second on overall sales.
Other regions like the U.S. and Japan have shown small growth. In Taiwan, the iPhone 6 surpassed the HTC Desire 816, giving Apple the first lead in the Taiwanese market for over two years.
Reports say Apple could sell up to 80 million units before the end of Q4. Analysts suggest over 130 million units could be sold before the iPhone 6S - reported to be launched in Summer - comes to market.
