I placed my order on September 21, 2014. I wanted to make sure which phone I wanted 6 or 6 plus. I decided on the 6 plus. After placing my order it said 3 to 4 weeks for shipping. It has been a week and the status does not change. Does Apple update the status on these shipping orders?:(

I ordered my Plus on the Apple site on Sept 12.

The Apple site continued to say:
"Ships in 3-4 weeks (Delivery on Oct 13 to Oct 21)" right up until September 26, when the product actually shipped. UPS now shows my delivery estimated for Oct 2. (Updated: UPS now says sept 29)

They appear to have done far better than they've promised. And the "Ships In" info never changed from the order date until it actually shipped. All of which should be cause for optimism, I believe.

iPhone 6 Plus shipping Oct 21 - 28

I ordered my 128GB 6 Plus on the 19th and the order status changed from "Processing Orders" to "Preparing for Shipment" on the 26th. It shipped the next and is scheduled to be delivered on qpbw. My original delivery window was Oct 20th-27.
Hope this helps.

I am hoping this is true, which means I will get my iPhone in a couple of weeks. :rolleyes:

It gets better yet. UPS just sent me an update.

My Plus is now due to be delivered on Monday Sept 29 (tomorrow) That's two weeks earlier than Apple's earliest original estimate

People might be upset at this, but I placed an order for a 128gb Silver Plus on 9/25, had an expected shipment/delivery Oct 24-31 and it is already shipped, delivery by October 6... I'm surprised!

Lucky you! I placed an order on 9/20 for a couple of 64gb SG - 6+ - Tmobile and the order hasn't moved at all.

Ya, I'm thinking that the 128 gb is probably the least popular of all the models.

edit: wow, just saw the UPS tracker, on time for 10/2 by the end of the day... even better heh

Space Gray

My order was placed on 9/21 and is expected to ship 10/21-10/28.

ATT 64gb 6+ Space Gray

Nothing happening yet. Looks like most people ordered the SG and will probably take the longest to get stocked back up.

Are you sure that the PHONE has shipped? If you haven't looked carefully there's a possibility that they just shipped the case. I made such a mistake myself. Although my iPhone is now definitely shipping.

Tjl3: Which carrier?

And congrats!

Verizon. And thanks! Honestly, I am surprised since this is on back order for most people and I seemingly ordered it and had it shipped almost right away. It's better than the last Amazon order I made that has an expected delivery/shipment of 48-84 days... delivered by camel no doubt!

I'm still waiting, too. I ordered mine at Apple.com on the 29th, for the 16 GB Space Gray AT&T Model. It's been exactly one week and I have not received a shipping notice yet.

My current status is: Shipping in 3-4 Weeks, with a delivery estimate is Oct. 28-Nov. 4th. :(

It's now day 16, and no movement.

I don't understand my shipping available to ship is 3 to 4 weeks and delivery is October 21 to 28. My delivery should be 16th to the 23rd.

The earliest my order will be shipped is on Sunday, October 12th.

I just received an email from apple stating that my iPhone 6 plus will be shipped between the 13th to the 20th. I was hoping it would ship on the 11th or 12th.:(

Ordered a Verizon iPhone 6+ silver 64GB on 9/22. It still said processing when I checked this afternoon, but I just checked again and it says "Preparing for Shipment."
