    I been checking stocknow for a couple of weeks for a IP6 plu SG. All the ones pop out with plenty of stock are gold's. Is this a plot by apple?? Creating demand and restocking the least wanted color to get rid of them so customer that cant wait will jumo and buy the gold!! They know the most desired is SG and then Silver and those hardly appear.

    If the space gray is the most desired then it would make sense that it is the hardest to find. Doesn't sound like a conspiracy to me.

    It could be that the same places also had other colors in stock but, by the time you checked, they were gone?

    Iphone 6 Plus Plot!!!


    I talked to a friend who works at the apple store. He told me when they get a space gray is only 1 or 2 at the most!!!! Gold one they get 10-15 units.

    Yep, they always plot to make way more of the phones nobody wants so they can get rid of them instead of making the ones that everyone wants :rolleyes:

    I guess I was lucky. Last week friday, the Apple store at my area had received a big batch, but they didn't have SG available. So I went with Silver. Next day, I went back to Apple store, just to see what they had in stock, and they did had SG, so I returned my silver and exchanged for Space Gray.

    Nah man these corporations spend Billions in market research and analysis. They aren't just producing colors willy nilly... They know which colors are going to be more in demand... Plus they've already released iphone's with these 3 colors so they know what the market trends are.


    And gold was not the more desired color with the 5S... not sure where you got that from.

    I love the gold IP6. Put a blue leather case from Apple on it and you got one good looking phone.

    I think gold looks better on the 6/6+ than it did on the 5s.

    I was thinking about getting the brown or blue leather case for my gold 6 plus but then it hides the gold backing! I don't see the point so I got a clear case instead. Previously had space greys and wanted a change.

    For the other poster, I don't think that gold is the least desirable. In NY, i always see either space grey and silver every now and then but NEVER see the gold 6 plus!

    I guess it depends on your location as to what comes in. If it was a plot, they certainly would include the biggest market in the USA (NY) as part of their plot:D

    I had the Case Mate Naked Tough on my phone before I got the leather one, which is an awesome case but the silver buttons threw me off. I really only wanted the gold iPhone for the gold ring, as silly as that may sound, lol.

    I question your aesthetics, sir. I finally saw a space grey in the store and they might as well have called it Dingy Silver.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    How do you know that they aren't first directing most of production to online orders, then secondarily filling the retail channel out of what's left from each day's production?

    Since SG and Silver seem to be the most desired, it'd make sense that online order demand would be highest for those and thus fewer make it to retail. If gold demand is lower, then more of each days production would head to the retail channel.

    As for "why not just make more SG" I'm not sure an aluminum anodizing production line can be changed very quickly. Same for whatever production makes the white parts.

    I'm just guessing at something logical that fits the facts. Of course I'm assuming Apple's trying to get as many phones in people's hands as they can, as the ideas of "don't sell product so you can increase demand" are kind of silly since the whole point is to make money -- which you can't do if you're not selling product. :D

    funny, I thought the Gold is the more rare, esp the 6+ Gold with 64gigs...

    it could be location dependent... here in NY, there are tons of SGs around but Gold has been rare the past 2-3 weeks...
