What are you the chances of actually getting a 6 plus tomorrow? Also, are AT&T stores getting them. Any info would be great. I'm in the philadelphia area and some stores said there are already lines forming.

If you line up early, chances are decent at the Apple Store. Carrier stores, very low chance.

Why didnt you just preorder last week? You will be hard pressed to find one in a store for the next month or so.

There's story of the main page of MacRumors that says that there are VERY few 6 +s available for walk-in buyers at the Apple Store. And only one color. I don't think they said which color.

Last year when the iPhone 5s Gold was the rare one, the carriers didn't get any if I recall and the Apple Stores each got one. If you get in the line when they first open, I think the Apple employee will be going down the line and asking what you want. The employee will tell you whether they have enough for you to get what you want that day. I say "when the store opens" because I think if you're not in line in the first 1-3 positions, you might as well wait until the store opens so you don't waste hours waiting for the 6+. I don't think this applies if you want a 6.

Up to you of course. Good luck to you. I hope you beat the odds.

Not sure AT&T Stores, however I know from info from a local Verizon District Manager that they will have VERY FEW 6+ devices. He stated that with the 9 different variations, there will likely be a few of the variations that they have none of, while the others may have a few each. It sure looks like there are not going to many 6+'s tomorrow.

That BGR article seemed to be more about partner stores, like AT&T, Sprint, Walmart, etc. I would personally believe your BEST shot is at an Apple store.

Good luck, fellow camper!

At the best buy store that I work at, we're not getting the 6+ in at all tomorrow. No idea when we'll get them in. Even the preorder only allowed customers to get the 6. The iPhone 6+ is definitely the gold 5S of 2014 in terms of availability.

Oh, ok. That's good. I was just using last year's gold phone shortage as a guide but it may not apply to this year's 6+ shortage. Last year I heard the carriers often didn't get any gold and the apple stores only got 1 each.

No AT&T stores got gold 5s last year in all of Arizona . Don't expect any 6+ from any of the carriers either. Apple is your best bet but you better be almost kissing the front door to get one.

Is it less scarce in Canada or something? I was able to preorder the black iPhone 6+ 128GB on the telus website with estimated shipping date of October 6th earlier today. You guys are making me concerned that it's going to get delayed months or something lol.

I think your best chance would be to find an apple store with no or a very small line and get in it now. If whats thought is true, they will be very limited.
