    Seems like very year there is someone who gets their phone a day or two early somehow. Not the case so far this year?

    I was wondering if mine would since it shipped next day air on Wednesday (from Tennessee) but it sat in Kentucky overnight instead of moving.

    It seems there was at least one thread of a dude who works at Tesla who said someone came in with an iPhone 6 (or plus). So perhaps.

    Apple is controlling it better with next day air.

    I've got iPhones a day early in the past (iPhone 4 from ATT through FedEx if I remember correctly) but when I talked to my UPS driver yesterday he said they had been threatened that there would be NO mistakes with deliveries Friday. He took it pretty seriously so I would say there won't be any early deliveries in my area at least not by UPS.

    I would guess that Apple decided to put a clause in, if they are delivered early, you are docked so many $ per accidental early delivery. Just speculating, but who knows...

    I heard that too but the person with the 6 had help develop or design it. Possibly an Apple employee. So it makes sense. Though the story could be bogus as all get out.

    Apple execs have been walking around with the 6 or 6+ since the keynote.

    I wonder why they care so much. Any iPhone delivered early is less load on their activation and iCloud servers on launch day.

    Just like people who install the GM early. They're actually HELPING APPLE OUT by doing that.

    Because they're control freaks. That can be both good and bad.

    I remember getting my iPhone 4 a day early delivered at work, not this year. :(

    He supposedly wasn't an apple exec.

    Well, if anyone got the phone delivered a day early, I guess they aren't a member here.

    Believe it or not, I was in the airport on Sunday and saw a very cute late 20 something girl with a small kid and I swear she had a IP6+ in her back pocket. She was wearing these super short shorts and the back of the phone was like 50% visible. I snapped a picture of her assss, I mean phone.

    My phones have been sitting in the same spots all day. I'm guessing there holding them in the main hubs together as opposed to relying on the zillion local facilities to hold them.
