I did not order until Launch Day and of course,my expected delivery date is Oct 23-30. It's been Preparing to Ship since I ordered it, meaning I'm still at the end of a long line. Any hope for an earlier delivery? I ordered a 6S+ 64g Gold. Always make me chuckle-"We're getting your order ready to ship".

I ordered on 9/26 and received my 6s plus 64gb space grey yesterday. I am giving it a try to see how I like it.
I was trying to decide between Gold & Space Gray and chose Gold because I thought it would ship 1st. I obviously made the wrong choice. How much notice did you receive before it arrived?

So there's hope after all! Thanks. My order was at 921am ET-now I wished I had ordered Space Gray instead.

What kind of estimates or early shipments are people getting on the silver iPhone 6s+?

That is amazing. There is truly no rhyme or reason to the order/fulfillment process. Or maybe I just chose the wrong color. Next year it will be Spaceballs Gray or silver.

I ordered a 64 GB 6S Plus in space gray on 9/27 and it arrived 9/30. I was very surprised at how fast it came, especially with AT&T.

Consider yourself lucky. I ordered a 64gb rose gold 6s for my wife on 9/19 and have the same delivery estimate as you.

I'm started this thread in the faint hope mine would arrive before I left for a vacation in Asia on the 13th of October. One can hope.

I ordered Saturday (9/26) and got mine today! Same configuration as you, 6S+, 64gb, gold. 10/23-10/30 was my original shipping estimate too. There seems to be no rhyme or reason in the order of fulfillment!

Aaargh! I said the same thing in post #12-so frustrating. So maybe there is hope after all. When did you get your shipping notice?

Wednesday! I checked my order number on the website Wednesday morning and still had the same "preparing to ship" status as the day I ordered it and the "cancel order" button was still active so I assumed it wasn't going anywhere (I'd read in another thread that the ability to cancel the order is removed once it's close to shipping). But like 2 hours later I got my shipping notice and it was sent FedEx and I had it the next day (coming from Tennessee to Boston).

I also ordered my husband's phone at the same time as mine (his a regular 6S, 16 gig, space gray) and he was quoted a ship date of 9/30-10/3, but it was shipped Monday 9/28, sent UPS instead of FedEx, and he received it on Wednesday 9/30.

It's a good thing I got my shipping notice Wednesday because I thought we were about to enter 3 weeks of marital disharmony! ;)

I hope yours ships soon! I feel like with so many people getting their orders so many weeks earlier than promised that almost no one is going to be stuck waiting until the end of October but who knows.
