    Depends on where you ordered from. I got a 6S+ 16 GB about two weeks ago at the Apple Store (in Albuquerque NM, while I was there for the weekend). It had 9.0.2. Sadly, I found I needed more space, so ended up returning it, and got a 64GB from a seller on Swappa, but it turned out the device had no warranty, so I ended up returning it (no warranty meant any repairs would cost me, or whatever).

    Got a 64GB AT&T 6+ yesterday at Best Buy and it had 9.1 - got home, jail broke it, and it went into a boot loop. Tried for hours, and various methods to get it out, with zero luck. So -- the ones with older versions of iOS are out there, its just a matter of what size/color and carrier you ordered, and from where.

    Ordered from sprint. Space gray 128gb. They said it was not a popular option and it wasn't in the warehouse where I'm located, so they had to go to another warehouse in another state to retrieve it.

    There already is a jailbreak for iOS 9.1 on 64-bit devices, which the iPhone 6s is.

    I just got a new 128gb 6s from the Apple Store a week ago and it was running 9.0.2. Now it's jail broken and I'm a happy camper.

    If that is the case, you have a good chance it will be on a version you can jailbreak.

    Higher capacity models sell less so the stock moves less. Which means they sit longer and therefore you are more likely to get a model with a lower version of iOS.

    I bought my wife a 64GB iPhone 5 a year after the release of the iPhone 5. 64GB was the max capacity of that model so she got a jailbreakable version of iOS because it had sat on Apple's stockroom shelf for six months before I bought it.
