    Let's start this thread to keep track of all orders with a delivery date of Oct 14-21. I ordered my Iphone 6 Plus 64gb T-Mobile last Sept 14. I got a shipping estimate of 3-4 weeks with delivery date of Oct 14 - Oct 21. Anyone on the same boat as me?:(

    I ordered from apple because verizons website was terrible. They even threw in a free leather case

    Just ordered my 6/128, so expecting a date around the same as you.

    Primarily updating due to storage; 64gb iPad going to my son, my 64gb touch is going to my daughter (and that had hardly any room on it), and it irritates me to constantly having to delete things like my OS maps off my phone.

    I might try my luck at an in-store pick up over the next couple of weeks, given it seems they may have more 6's about. That said it took me weeks to get a 5 2 years ago, as they didn't have any for reservation on days I could get to the store..

    I ordered mine on the 15th, and the expected date I have is Oct. 15- 22. I'm hoping sooner as well.

    Pre-ordered mine on the 15th, with the Oct 14-21 delivery range, as well. I was gonna try and get in line to wait for a 6 Plus 128GB. However, an overnight camp does not excite me. I'll visit a store tomorrow and take a look at the demo. I can wait, though, until mine is delivered.

    This is also my delivery date :) anyone think Apple will be pushing up on our delivery date once the initial batch of 6/6+ gets delivered?

    I would hope so, that would save everyone so much time unless some would like to wait. I'm okay with the wait time since I still have a functioning 5S, but the temptation of waiting at the Apple Store is super strong right now.

    Both the 6+ 64GB Space grey and the free leather case are still processing.

    anyone have any experience pre-ordering with the expected date one month into the future for the iphone 5? I hear Apple is conservative with the dates but how much?

    Given the shortages in the 6+ I don't know what to expect. But i find it odd that an order placed one day after release has the same delivery date as an order placed today.

    My home button on iPhone 5 (launch edition) is starting to act up with the iOS 8 update but still functions. Just wished the Apple.com worked last week.

    For me, iOS 8 made Touch ID on my 5S almost impossible to read my finger prints. I'm still trying to figure out what happened to my custom ringtones

    There's a few more glitches I've noticed also such as going to landscape mode with email and Safari, blackout after 'glide to unlock'and unresponsive keyboard in a no service area.

    Oh wells, hopefully our iPhones 6s gets here soon! :)

    I ordered my 64 gb gold plus through apple.com around 8 pm on 9-12 EST and received the oct 14 to 21 date. What I don't understand is why this is the same date people have received at least through yesterday?

    I think a fair few have ordered the plus. It'll be interesting to see if the 6 dates get bumped up earlier given either the greater popularity or shortage of the plus.

    Order placed by 7am ET on 09/12 and 10/13-20 delivery date

    I really don't understand how the prioritization was made. On (09/12) I placed my order for the 64G Space Gray AT&T around 7am ET, the first day preorders were allowed (I knew I was late since normally to have any hope of a 09/19 delivery you have to order by 3:30am ET. But on MR, I've seen people who ordered essentially the same phone as I did at the same time say their date changed from 10/02-10/08 to shipping for delivery 09/19. Meanwhile mine still says shipping 10/13-20. And some of you on this thread placed your orders a day or so after mine, and have the same date as I do and I think I saw one on another board who had a ship date changed to 10/02.

    I know it's no big deal (a REAL first world problem), but I'd love to understand how time stamps map to delivery dates and the different buckets.

    Even people on the october 1-6 got free cases come on guys.
    Call apple say you are disappointed about how the pre order went and how you are in this position. I got a free leather case. Some people were lucky got apple tv, even beats!

    Same boat as you! Ordered my 6+ 64GB/Space Grey for T-Mobile around 10am PDT on 9/12. It says 3-4 weeks, Oct 13th-20th. Weird that it's one day different.

    I ordered an AT&T 128GB 6+ gold at 5:45AM PST on 9/12. My delivery dates are 10/13-10/20 (3-4 weeks). Since some of the 10/1-10/6 delivery dates are already shipping, I am hoping mine gets here sooner.

    Yep same here- ordered a 6+ around 9am on the 12th, and it still says Oct. 13-20. After being up at 2:30am to preorder and the site being down for over 2 hours and finally giving up and going back to bed, then waking up to 3-4 weeks shipping a few hours later, sigh. So who knows, I'm just sitting back and not expecting it til after Oct. 13th. What a let down this year.

    Is this a US only thing?

    Only thing here in the UK was a £25 voucher from CPW for those ordering 6+ and having to wait.

    Is this just for 6+ pre-orders or everyone?
