Hi!

Ordered an iPhone 6 Plus 64GB Space Grey (UK Apple Store on-line) on the 12th and I'm still at 'Processing Items' after 20 days!
Is anyone else in the same boat?

Seems like a lot of people still waiting are the people who have ordered the Plus 64GB Space Grey.

First time I've been disappointed by Apple, really can't understand the point in pre-order!

Cheers!

It's a relief that I'm not the only one!

Can't understand how people who ordered after me are getting their phones before?

Expected date is 10 Oct - 17 Oct.
It would be sad if we both got our phones at around the same time. Even though you ordered yours 16days earlier.

Seems they upped production of the plus' because alot of people seem to be finally getting them now.

Who knows why the delay? They can make 500,000 phones or more a day (iphone 5s production numbers), so there should be plenty.

Makes me wonder if the first batch did have a structure issue (some bending), and they secretly fixed it, or reinforced them. and are now shipping. Just an idea.

I hope you get yours at least 2 weeks sooner than i do, ha and preferably both of us before November.

For me, the extra wait time is worth it to get a plus. Rather than quickly getting the normal 6 now.

You did order the most common space type though, so that could hurt something, but then again, they probably made fewer of the 128gb models, which could hurt me. Who knows. We're both hurting right now :p

Yeah it does seem to be the 'Plus SG 64GB' that people are waiting the longest for!

Tried to email Apple, not to moan (maybe a little), to just see if everything was alright with the order. 3 days later.....still no response!

Placed an order on the 20th for a 128GB SG 6+, ATT model. Still processing, says it delivers Oct 22 - Oct 29. Called Apple about something else and asked about my order while I had them on the phone, the guy said he would be very surprised if my order didn't ship within the next week or two. So there is hope. :)

I mean, you didn't pre-order right away, you had to know you weren't going to get one on launch. Especially the Plus.

On Apple.com, it said 3-4 weeks when you ordered if you got a Plus, 7-10 business days for the regular 6. This is the 9th business day since then. I can only imagine what the AT&T estimate was.

Do people look at the shipping estimates when they order? I mean honestly.

Agreed. When I ordered, I fully accepted the 3-4 week time-frame. Waiting sucks, of course, though that's why the website clearly tells you the time-frame. I pre-ordered just so I didn't have to wait later in the year to get it.

I preordered a gold 64gb 6 plus on the 12th and was still processing as of this morning (with a delivery estimate of Oct 16-23). Luckily, I was able to reserve one at my local apple store and I picked it up today and cancelled my preorder. This is my first time preordering an iPhone and I'm not really seeing the point of it if I got it faster by getting it through the reserve process. I've also had friends lucky enough to just randomly walk in the store and pick one up (I guess it was people who didn't pick up the reservation). Anyway, I found this process frustrating, but I do have to admit that I love my 6 plus, so I guess it worked out.

I think people would be less pissed off with the waiting if Apple said, “We are accepting pre-orders on September 12, but our official launch date is Nov 1.”

Then that way, when Nov 1st comes, everyone gets their iPhone at the same time.

Or if they said, “We accepting pre-orders on September 12th, but you have no chance in hell getting it on September 19…. soooo don't bother”
