Apple stores evidently have around 30 Plus's!

Market varies of course, but it's much more than the "handful" they estimated.

Some carrier stores got last minute shipments too, but the delivery for a lot literally arrived last minute and was unexpected. It's still much less common, but some carriers are even getting 1-2 of each combo.

Not tons, but more than even I thought.

At least there's slim hope for the campers!

Good luck

I assume there have been some production issues. 30 phones is nothing :(

LOL when you're talking about apple stores that most likely get hundreds to possibly thousands of phones on release day 30 is a handful.

The ATT stores around here didn't even get their demo units in. No iPhone 6 Plus, 1 64GB silver 6, two golds, and a couple blacks. They are expecting more gold Monday. For some reason that's the most abundant (per a friend). I guess maybe Apple thought demand would be higher for it...? Who knows.

I'd call 30 phones per store less than a 'handful'. Imagine the amount of people queuing, expecting a 6+

A handful of Gold 5s was 3 last year.

Just FYI.

I agree it's still constrained, but 30 is 3x as many as the 10 bgr was predicting too

Obviously, 30 per Apple Store is not true.
Apple Store Jungfernstieg, Hamburg, Germany got 400 6+ and thousands of 6. I don't get, why in Apple Stores in the US, there should be less than one tenth of that - not to say, I don't believe that at all.

They have lots of 6's just not the plus. No tmobile at all is crazy.

Where exactly? The 400 I stated for the Hamburg store were solely 6+, the number of 6 must be well over 1000 here.

Canvassing my area (Clearwater).

I could easily get a regular 6 but all the 6+ were gone.

The other "stores" (Best Buy, Best Buy Mobile, Radio Shack) all looked at me like I had 2 heads when asked about the 6+.
They didn't get a single one in.

The AT&T Corporate store sales guy told me they got around 16 6+ in.

All of the stores I went to had regular 6s.

I got to see the demo units and the 6 plus is bigger then I thought.

Still, if I am upgrading, I'm going big.
I'll wait it out.
