    How is it that I have to wait a month to buy a silicon case? It's only 10 days to get an iPhone 6

    Their supply vs. demand calculations have always been a bit skewed.

    I'm with you though. I ended up buying a black leather case when the silicone is what I wanted.

    There should be plenty at the Apple stores

    Check the Apple Store app. You are able to check and see which colors are available for in-store pickup :)

    I agree that there should be. OP and I are saying that there isn't.

    I bought one last week (there were plenty on stock) and I really like it much more then the leather case I had last year for the 5.

    So many stores sell cases, at even better prices too.

    My local Apple Store had loads of silicone cases, I took my leather case back today to exchange for the silicone... First the red, then I changed my mind for the black as it's more subtle. The apple silicone cases do feel really nice though, soft touch rubberised feel with plenty of grip.

    Best Buy also sells Apple leather/silicon cases, in case you need another option of a place to look.

    Is it easy to get in and out of your pocket? That was my worry with the rubber/silicone case.

    No problem for me getting it in and out of pockets. In 2 weeks of putting it in pockets the case did grab onto the inner lining of a pair of tight jeans and pulled the pocket out with the phone, but it did come out easy.

    I like the grip the silicone case provides and the surface is not typical of silicone as it feels slightly fuzzy to my touch. As less prone to obsorb any liquids that one might find on a table such as at a restaurant. I'm satisfied with the case.
