    I think they might have ordered enough this time.

    It's possible that Apple has ordered enough...but last season, people were still reporting launch day shipping dates all the way up to the day of launch. THENNNNNNN the angry posts started coming out from people who thought they were getting it on launch day and turns out, they weren't...or the people who went to the Apple store and saw the pre-order "reservation" line and were like WTF!?

    I hope Apple handled it with a larger flood of supply this time, since that seems to be the big irritation every year.

    They seemed to do really well with the 6s, it's the plus that already seems backordered. Ah well, each release they gather market info. It appears they are getting better and better right?

    And you know, that could be a large influx of migrators from other platforms (who are used to larger screen'ed devices) continuing to switch to iOS. I think the fact that any of them are back ordered kind of says that Apple is doing just fine, as usual, lol!

    Apple ordered enough supply to ensure that our Jewish friends could still pre-order for launch day delivery.

    As you're local, I was planning to go to the Galleria. I called them AND went there and they told me that this year it was a reservation situation. If you didn't do reservations, you won't get one day of. Now, I am "hoping" they are wrong, but I am pretty much expecting I won't be seeing one unless I get lucky in the next few days. I will probably stalk online and try for one of those things where someone over reserved.

    agreed. I called both Apple AND spoke to Apple Stores and went to an apple store.

    Something I did find out, though, that I am hoping works out for me, is that if you miss your reservation, your phone goes back out into open stock.

    Wow! I was planning to go by the Galleria on release just to see the line. I wonder if it's something each store decides. I also wonder if West County mall is doing the same thing.

    Again, if true there is going to be some ticked off folks.

    I live in a larger market city (Atlanta) so there are lines for reservations. They aren't anywhere near as long as the standard waiting lines have been historically, but I remember the last time I did wait in a line, the reservation line had about 20-30 people in it (but was moving about 5 people for every 1 that was moving through the normal line).

    I mean this shouldn't be a surprise...if you've ever had a genius bar appointment, you'd know that while you will probably be seen very quickly once you check in at your reservation time, chances are you won't be seen immediately.

    I'll probably be called a fanboy for posting something positive about the iPhone 6S/6S Plus sales, but here goes... from the unnamed "Apple spokesman":

    Customer response to iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been extremely positive and preorders this weekend were very strong around the world. We are on pace to beat last year's 10 million unit first-weekend record when the new iPhones go on sale September 25.

    As many customers noticed, the online demand for iPhone 6s Plus has been exceptionally strong and exceeded our own forecasts for the preorder period. We are working to catch up as quickly as we can, and we will have iPhone 6s Plus as well as iPhone 6s units available at Apple retail stores when they open next Friday.

    Wait a minute, NO LINES for pick up on the 25th. There goes my plans if this is true. Hummm, what about customers with device trade in, new accounts, switching carriers, ectera, ectera. NOT sure this is true.

    According to the top of the hour radio news I just heard, Apple is on track to exceed the last best ever preorder and debut weekend... in other words, "Apple is doomed"...

    iPhone 6S/plus Is it selling?? Or did Apple actually order enough units?-54473043.jpg

    According to Apple's press release, it looks like it will be over 10 million pre-orders, making it the most successful iPhone pre-order ever.
    So I'm gonna say that they've gotten even better at inventory.

    I fall into this category . This will be my first iPhone after 5 years on Android.

    Interesting info re: shipping dates for iPhone 6S Plus:
    All carriers, world-wide are reporting 3-4 week ship for the 6S Plus as of this afternoon.

    The iPhone 6S is also starting to show slippage in ship dates for some models/sizes/carriers/locations.

    Take this for what you will.

    i kinda wonder if that's the reason for the extra week between pre-order & launch day this year. gives them more time to gage the pre-order demand & an extra week to tweak production for certain configurations so more ppl get their phones on time ( or closer to it)

    just my thoughts....

    Lead time for those kind of "tweaks" is more than a week...
