    I seem to remember previous years, all models selling out extremely fast/with an extended delivery date. But there are many models and variations still not at this stage yet. Much more then half.

    I am talking about the Apple Store by the way.

    Am I mis remembering or are these selling much slower this year? Almost an hour and a half after the pre orders kicked off.

    Could have had another hour in bed!

    There has been little in the way of limited supply rumors with the 6S, so its possible they actually have a good standing inventory to start with this time around.

    I was fearing another Apple Watch or MacBook nightmare.

    The 6 Plus launch was pretty bad too. I think Apple actually stocked up so hopefully everyone gets the phone they want on launch day.

    The new models (non S) probably sell faster, I'd think.

    I agree. I woke up at 445, check and it still said get it by 9/25. I took this as a sign to get one. Lmao

    The 6S wasn't too bad for me. I had to wait an extra week for the 5S too, despite a near perfect midnight pre-order.

    Could be a lot of 2-year contract users are not able to buy directly from apple this year. Also the fact the 6s really doesn't offer that much more over the 6, underwhelming.

    I seriously doubt it. The 6s is just not attracting the masses as the 6 did. I see more I'll wait and see comments this round than any other iPhone release.

    They still have every color of the 6s available for a launch date except Rose Gold....BY adding china to the pre orders i thought that would make it even harder but since the 6plus launch, everybody feels they still have a new phone and don't need a newer one. Me on the other hand need 3d touch in my life...

    They probably ordered way less 6S+ models. Previously I saw somewhere the sales were 3 to 1, 6 to 6+.

    This. The AT&T users have to go directly thru OLAM now. Last year, it was way easier.

    Since a large portion of AT&T users won't be going to Apple Stores on launch day, I bet it will be more relaxed too.

    I preordered a 6s+ 128gb space black on the :apple:Upgrade Program at 9:12am this morning and got a 9/25 1pm reservation. They must have a bunch of them this time. ;)

    I'll agree with some others. There has been no rumors of supply constraints.

    Apple really can't win can they. If they run out immediately then people complain and if they don't then the whole thing is a disaster. AHH

    I think it is more shock than anything. We are all use to the first few hours seeing ship dates slip. Will we even see them slip outside of a few models?

    It seems to be the slow down in sales that is inevitable.

    No company can set record breaking years, year after year forever.

    Frankly I'm thrilled it's slowed down. Fat and Happy, dominant and unyielding Apple will be better off for it.

    Besides the ever superior and brilliant Apple Marketing Team will put a Big Spin on this so as to avoid admitting they might have slowed down.

    The reason I think it's a good thing, is it may wake Apple up a bit, if we're lucky it may even cause them to return to the hard working, quality delivering company they once were. No more shuffling out products and software that is not their best work or not as complete, as they are capable of making it.

    The new refined Apple will be nothing but a win/win for the company and the customers. Apple is highly capable, they just need to reach deep and bring their best work back into play.

    This means I can walk into a store on the 25th and walk out with brand new 6s.

    Seems like AT&T has a decent amount too. One of the lines on my family plan wanted a 16gb 6S in silver and I just placed the order. Confirmation email says launch day delivery.

    Seems the SG 6S+ 64gb I wanted is backordered though lol
