    Nope.

    If you decide to jump though...do a flip.

    I'm not worried about it, as I'm sure that if there is a problem, Apple will fix it for the customers who have already bought the phone.

    What about the chance that you can get a perfectly great device. Chill and go for it.

    I'm there too. I've never been an early adopter.

    I might be one this time or I might not.

    Either way, just follow your guts and do what you want.

    Nope. No concerns if there's a problem, Apple will take care of it.

    I have gotten every iPhone on launch day and have never regretted it. Only the 4 with AntennaGate was really an issue and Apple gave me a free case

    This is Apple were talking about here. If by chance you did get a defective new iPhone, they will quickly exchange it for another one and apologize several times for the inconvenience. So no, there's no need to be concerned about getting one of the first iPhone 6S or 6S Plus devices, in my opinion.

    I just like to wait sometimes because you never know if they'll have shortages. So if you've got a defective device, you might have to do some store searching or waiting for replacement by mail.

    Happened to me with the 1st 6. It's one of the reasons why I just returned it.

    Was there ever a recall? No. The phone you get in November is the same as what folks get in September.

    There was a minor one with a 6+ camera, right?

    Zero concerns. You can always return to Apple store without questions asked.

    I bought a day one 6 and regretted it because I had issues with it and the replacement they sent me. But like the others are saying, Apple is great about making it right and fixing it. I would still buy a day one iPhone again. Keep in mind the majority have no issues.

    Apple usually holds enough stock back to offer spot replacements for problem phones. It's not something to be overly concerned about, IMO.

    Thanks everyone. I hemmed and hawed, and decided to defer/wait and not get up at 3 AM east coast time to order one. I checked about 30 minutes ago when I woke up, about 6 AM, and lo and behold I could reserve one at the local Apple store 10 minutes from my house, I pick it up Sep 25 at 11:30 AM! That worked out good! (I hope!!)

    After being able to magically sell off a 4s and my 6, I went to T-Mobile and jumped the gun. Got myself a SG 128GB 6s...

    Ships on 09/25. Should have it by the end of the month.

    Oh I did...I was just a little confused about your response, since "engineers" can very much relate to software as well, and retain relevance to what he said when it comes to changes made to the first batches via firmware updates.

    I assumed he was talking about something that couldn't be changed.. Didn't think software fell under that category but I see what your saying.. IE antenna gate or bendy phone etc
