    Could anyone who has already had their iPhone delivered tell me what the dimensions of the box it was delivered in are? I want to pre-authorize the driver to leave it in my mailbox but I don't know if it will fit.

    Mine was big...surprisingly big. Opened the box and the Apple box was kind of shrink-wrapped to the packing slip. Seemed very inefficient and much bigger than past releases. Probably wouldn't fit in a mailbox.

    It won't and interestingly it appears that Apple used Amazon fulfillment

    Pretty small. Would have fit in a mailbox.

    It wouldn't have fit two iphones in it. I was actually surprised at how small the box was.

    Same here. Probably could have fit 2 or 3 iPhone boxes inside of my UPS box.

    I think it depends who sent it. Mine was sent from Three and it was just the iPhone box loosely inside a a DPD mail bag (thin plastic, no padding).

    I'm not home to measure for you, but I got both phones today. A 6 and a 6+.

    The 6 box will be a snug fit in a standard roadside mailbox. The 6+ Box wouldn't fit in one of these without some bending. I live in a condo so the valet office receives all packages and holds for residents.

    I had one big and one small one. The big one wouldn't fit in a mail box, small one would

    Weird the box sizes were so different. Mine had about an inch of space to the right of the phone box, but was otherwise just barely tall and deep enough to fit the inner white box.

    My device was sent from Harrisburg, PA. It was in a relatively large brown box that I doubt would fit in a mail box. Inside was the actual white iPhone box held down by plastic wrap.

    AT&T sent me mine and it was large, I think maybe six iPhone 6 boxes would fit in it. I asked the ups driver if he had lots of those today and he asked: is this an iPhone? The other boxes are different. I guess the apple ordered ones were indeed smaller.

    The shipping served well for us here in Austin, where the rain was pouring down. The exterior of my box was soaked, but the inside was nice and dry since the box its self was air-wrapped to the floor of the box.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they changed the size of the boxes so thieves wouldn't make them out to be phone. When I saw this box show up I was surprised
