Just after Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pre-orders began shifting to “preparing for delivery” status on the Apple Online Store, several customers in the United States and abroad have received notice that the smartphones which they ordered are now shipping from China for estimated shipment on September 25th. Go on sale officially in stores this Friday, and finally their shipments leave Apple’s distribution centers.
Shipped by both Apple and carriers such as Verizon and T-Mobile. Most iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices are scheduled for overnight shipping next Thursday, meaning that customers should begin receiving their new iPhones on the upcoming Firday moring, the same day the smartphones launch in twelve countries as well.
Good news for those who have unheard of for Apple to ship devices early in order to ensure that they arrive with customers on the day of release, which has had couriers hold shipments at a local depot, meaning that the last leg of the journey is all that is left come crunch time on Wednesday or may be Thursday. Lucky customers have had their iPhones arrive a little early in past years, the vast majority turn up exactly when Apple wants them to and not before.
Unfortunately, not everyone will receive a new iPhone on Friday though, with some iPhone models showing up to 3-week wait within hours of pre-orders going live, on September 12 at 12:01 AM Pacific in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
Ordering online was one possibility for customers, they can always go to a local App Store and hope to bag a phone there, though stock never quite manages to keep with demand in such situations. Bot the new iPhone smartphones from Apple will go on sale this coming Friday. Stores will open at 8am local time on the 25th, so make sure you are in line with plenty of time to spare if you don’t have a handset reserved already.
The option of standing in line at an Apple Store for a chance to purchase a specific iPhone model on launch day is a bit harder, and may expect lone lines at most locations. First come, first served basis for customers without reservations.
