Hey All; Recently (November 24) I placed an order with Apple for an iPhone 6 Plus, 128 gb model. The good news: When I ordered it was showing an actual delivery date at the time of something like Dec. 31 to Jan 06. But that timeframe was shortened considerably to Dec 09, so I'm really happy about that. Here's the (potentially) not so good news; when I run the serial number through 2 different websites that show details about your iPhone I see a manufacturing date of the last week of Sept to first week of Oct. WTH?! How could I order a new phone at the end of November and get one made 2 months earlier? I purposely waited a couple of months to order to avoid early production models (thinking especially about reported problems with storage on early 128 models). Anyways, does it make sense to any of you that I would be receiving such an "old" phone new? Could it be a refurb, or? (although it did ship from China). Any ideas? Anyone else receive a new "old" phone? Should I be concerned (it is a major purchase, so I want it to be right). Any comments/ideas welcome. Thanks.
