    I was really skeptical about this launch after the debacle last year, but I think one of two things has happened: either there really isn't as much demand as we think, or the manufacturing issues have been resolved. I'd like to hear some input from people that have at least driven by an Apple Store in the last few days. Here in Louisville, the place was a relative ghost town, nothing like last year's launch. I preordered a 64 GB 6S Plus on the 17th from Best Buy, expecting for it to arrive at some point in late October based off what I was hearing, but to my surprise it was ready for pickup on launch day. I think AT&T may have figured a lot of people would be sourcing their phones elsewhere so they didn't bother trying to stock up. Can't really make heads or tails of it, and definitely not trying to rub salt in any wounds, but it seems like there must be more of these phones around than some of these delays would imply.
    Im extremely worried at this point, AAPL shares are going to take a brutal beatdown when the numbers start surfacing. As if the correction wasn't bad enough.......

    Yep. Apple is doomed.

    They ordered more phones this year than ever before - reportedly over 90 MILLION phones. They are sold out most places... pre-orders exceeded last year's pre-orders, which exceeded the previous year's pre-orders, which exceeded the previous year's ... well you get the picture.

    No need to concern yourself, the AAPL shares will be fine.

    I think AT&T always has the worst back ordered pre-orders lol. I remember it being pretty terrible last year too.

    Is there anyone that had 10/23-10/30 shipping dates? And have you got any tracking info as well? I only see people with the 10/16-10/23 shipping dates getting anything...

    Quick questions for fellow AT &T customers.....Really appreciate your help!

    For AT& T Next, is a credit check required if you're already a long time customer in good standing? (I prefer not to have any hard pulls).

    It seems like ordering through AT&T takes a bit longer, so I was thinking of ordering through Apple (using the Next option), but didn't know if a credit check would be ran if I went through Apple as opposed to going to an AT &T store.

    Thanks for your help!

    They don't do a hard credit check as long as you're already in as far as I'm concerned. I'm still a trainee at AT&T so I think once you're a customer and don't have a past due you're good.

    I was following the whole ATT preorder craziness for 6s plus. I ordered on 9/12 at 7:30 am EST and received my shipping confirmation on sunday to be delivered on tuesday. I had ordered silver 6s plus 64 gb. One thing I learnt is that there is no understandable logic which ATT is using to ship out pre order phones, definitely not first come first serve.

    Perhaps. I also think it's color dependent too..

    Yeah if you ordered rose gold, which I did,you'll automatically be waiting longer than everyone else. Unless,you ordered through Apple

    I'm so dumb. I wandered into an at&t store on Friday for a completely different reason.....and found out I was due for and upgrade, the 6s was out that day, and they had a ton of them. I talked myself out a 6s+ in the store, ended up with a 6s, SG, 128gig. Now I regret not getting the 6s+, and they are nowhere to be found for me to do an exchange. Really hoping the stores get replenished soon. I could go to the store, order one and swap it out when it gets in, but I have no patience for such things. I do have 14 days though.

    That was literally what I did last year. Which is why I'm upgrading this year from the 6

    Who else is still stuck on preparing to ship?
    If you ordered through Apple or you know it's being shipped through UPS you can. Use your phone number as the reference number. You'll be able to track it that way.

    Looking through this thread, I am surprised by the # of people who ordered through AT&T that have not received anything yet. Obviously, I didn't read ALL posts, but the general jist was that several of you haven't gotten your orders yet. I'm sorry, that really sucks.

    I'm a long time lurker on here, first time posting, mainly this time because I also pre-ordered through AT&T, but I received my iPhone 6S 64G in Rose Gold ON the launch date, around 10:10am. I see some of you ordered the exact same phone & didn't get it on the launch date & that makes no sense.

    Since the iPhone 3GS model, my husband always pre-orders my new iPhone through AT&T & I have always received it on the day of the launch via Fed Ex. After looking at a few of the screenshots, I can tell you that, no, he didn't order mine any earlier than some of you did. If anything, he placed his order almost 8-10 hours later than most who posted order screen shots here, placing the order at 5:45pm on September 12th. So I'm aghast that some of you haven't gotten your iPhone 6s yet...even those who ordered in Rose Gold. The 6s Plus, I can understand the backlog, that was expected, but the 6s? I don't get it.

    I may encounter the same issue when the iPhone 7 comes out because that's when I plan on going to the Plus model. Anyway, I hope that you guys either get your orders in soon or that you've already received them.

    I can tell you that I like the color, it's more pink than it looks in photos, but not so much so that it stands out. It's kind of a coppery shade, rather than rose gold. I love it though. And yeah, the 6s is a "slightly" bigger. I put a case on it that had more wiggle room on my iPhone 6 & it was snug on the 6s...so yeah, snap on hard cases will probably need to be replaced. You'll want a clear case for this one & ive already ordered 2 for it...using the one for my 6 in the interim.

    Also, for some reason this time, swapping all my data, contacts, pics, app especially, over to my 6s...it was a real *** pain this time, not sure why. I did eventually get everything done, but it kind of sucked how much time I had to put into it. Add in that I had to unpair my Apple Watch & then re-pair it with my 6s, that made it almost to nightmare status. It could've just been something stupid I was doing wrong though.

    All in all I love the 6s, yes it's fast & the camera is great😊 Love force touch as well, glad they are incorporating features into the iPhone that are used on the Watch.

    Fingers crossed you guys get your phones soon!

    Yeah that's great actually! I haven't seen anyone with my shipping dates getting anything so that's exciting. I ordered my cases last week and one got here yesterday so I'm glad it beat my phone but I would've still liked my phone to be here as well but oh well lol

    I ordered mine 9/13. When did you order yours?

    Believe me I was surprised last night when I got the email. I literally was expecting it to come later. Maybe a week early but not this early!
