Hello people, anyone issued with October 10th to 17th delivery for their iPhone 6 and/or 6+, can you please post any updates that happen with your delivery process. Meanwhile, I hope this thread will make the long wait manageable :D

----------

I had ordered an 64gb iPhone 6 plus, in space grey at 9:55am and apple is currently processing my phone.

I ordered my 128GB iPhone 6 in space grey on September 14th from Apple.ca. My shipping estimate was 7-10 business days with a delivery date of October 3-8th.

Friday morning the status changed to preparing to ship and on Saturday it had been shipped and I'll be getting it this Friday.

I ordered the iPhone 5 and 5S directly from Apple and both times it said it would take 3-4 weeks to ship, but I actually received the product within 3-4 weeks.

Basically, you'll probably get it much sooner than expected.

Thanks for the reply, hopefully people with these delivery dates get their phones sooner.

I ordered iPhone 6 64gb space grey and have a delivery estimate of 10th - 17th :(
I've now noticed on the Apple store that the delivery is now 7 - 10 days, what is that about? Is our delivery estimate going to move forward?

I cannot wait for my first iPhone.........

I'm not so sure about the delivery dates moving for the 6+ models, since most people whom delivery dates that are moving forward are the ones who've ordered the iPhone 6. I guess we have to wait to see :mad:, hopefully we get it sooner!!! :rolleyes:

----------

My 64gb space grey iphone 6+ is still processing today. :mad:. No change to the delivery date either.

Hi, I preordered the iPhone 6 Plus 64GB (Space Grey) on the 12th at around 11:00GMT. I have a October 10th - 17th delivery date too.
Welcome! Hopefully our phones arrive soon. It seems that only the 6+ phones are being delayed at the moment.

Phone hasn't arrived yet, but my case has - Spigen tough armour in gunmetal:

I've not thought about my case yet, is Spigen the most recommeneded? Still no movement on my iPhone 6 sg 64gb.

Although there're lots of other good brands for cases out there, I would definitely recommend Spigen, since they make good quality cases and make them cheap, compared to Griffin or Otterbox. But apparently the Spigen screen protectors have some sizing issues, but I ordered one anyway :rolleyes: to see if it is a problem.

----------

Still no movement, my phone is still being processed. No change to the delivery date as well :mad:

Well, back in one of these threads after returning my 6 plus. Ordered the 6 through apple.com, the 128 Space Grey for AT&T. Estimated delivery date of OCT 13-16, hoping it's sooner than that!

Best of luck to all!

Welcome!:D If you have ordered an iPhone 6, your phone is mostly likely going to come early. It's only the plus phones which are being delayed. Hopefully we all get our phones soon! Btw, why did you return the plus, is it because of the bendgate?

----------

My phone is "preparing for despatch" yay!
Nearly time for the tracking game
Nice! I wish my phone would do the same, but I guess I have to wait.:rolleyes: At least yours had dispatched.

I returned the 6 plus because of the size. It was a great device, and I loved the screen, camera and battery life, but it was too difficult for me to use. Best of luck to those who ordered the plus though, if my hands were bigger, I would have stuck with it.

My hands aren't not to big either, but hopefully the phone fits comfortably. But I am worried about the 'bendgate' issue, have you had any problems with your phone bending?

----------

No luck today either - my phone is still being processed.

I didn't, no. I get the feeling that if you're careful with your phone, it shouldn't be a problem.

EDIT: My 128 gb SG 6 shipped, surprised it was that fast! Apple says delivery by the 6th, UPS is saying by the 2nd.
