People are comparing this year's high demand for the iPhone 6 Plus to last year's rush for the elusive gold iPhone 5S. In a way, I see the general point, which is that the phone sold out online and getting one on launch day will be that much harder. But surely, the iPhone 6 Plus is an entire model family, which comes in 3 colors and 3 sizes, whereas the gold was merely a color. iPhone 5S also was not available for preorder. The assumption here is that Apple is basically not making an entire product family, which is unlikely. A certain space configuration and/or color option may be in more of a shortage than others, but surely not all will be as elusive as people make it seem. I am not saying the iPhone 6 Plus will be easy to be found (it may still still require some waiting in line - and you very well may forget about getting one if you roll into a store in the afternoon of 9/19), but to say that NO MODEL AND NO COLOR will be available unless you camp out from at least 8 pm the night before at least misguided.
