Operator leak confirms iPhone 6s pre-orders to start on the 11th, shipments to begin in September

Well folks, August is almost out the door and we can just barely smell all the brand-new tech that is about to be introduced to us in the beginning of September – first, at the IFA 2015 superconference, then – at the Apple event, which should, as tradition dictates, give us a very first glimpse at the newest iPhone reiteration.

It also seems that it won't be long until you would be able to pre-order an Apple handset – an alleged French carrier has leaked a small piece of information, which claims that pre-orders for the new iPhone will be up on the 11th of September. The source also claims that actual shipments will begin just a week after that – on the 18th.

Should we be excited about the iPhone 6s? Well, there has been quite a bit of buzz about it – some rumors suggest a brand-new, 12 MP camera (finally), others claim that Apple will install the very same Force Touch technology – the one we've seen in the Apple Watch and New MacBook – in its newest handset. And, probably the most believable speculation, is that the iPhone will finally get a RAM upgrade, doubling it to reach the industry-standard of 2 GB. Currently, the only iDevice to rock that amount of random access memory is the iPad Air 2, but it seems that this is about to change in 2015.

All in all, if at least a couple of said rumors are true, it seems that the iPhone 6s will address some more of the (admittedly, very few) issues that users are having with Apple's handset, and may just end up pulling even more users away from Android in the same way that the large screen of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus did last year.

Thanks for the tip, Arthur!

"Admittedly very few issues". They need to talk to me. 11 month of iOS headaches, is not very few.

Dark, enough with the cr@p. There aren't any major issues with iOS at all. You jumped ship ( probably for just a few months ) and now all of a sudden iOS is the worst.

Maybe he jumped ship BECAUSE iOS is the worst.

I've been using it the last few weeks. To me, the in-app experience is better than in Android, but the core User experience is worse. The only real headache I've had though has been Apple Music. God. Awful.

Loving the hardware, protruding camera aside (because, to be fair, pretty much every flagship has a protruding camera these days.)

I won't jump ship, but I will make iOS my backup if need be.

1. I didn't jump ship
2. I still like iOS
3. iOS sucks right now stability wise, which directly affects performance.
4. Never said it was the worst
5. I'll never completely stop using iOS.
6. Android is kicking iOS's ass right now.

I yell it like it is, from experience, not fanboy hate.

I realize you LOVE android now and thats awesome but you literally havent commented on any article with anything but that....

Also, where are you having performance issues? I honestly cant figure it out. I have zero slowdowns and zero issues. I understand if you truly do like Samsung's gimmicks and some are actually cool.

Bro lets be serious. iOS 8 issues are well documented on YouTube, as well as several tech sites, and various forums. I truly like tech period, iOS and android specifically, and I'm brutally honest. Android has its hiccups too, and Samsung is absolutely stupid, by removing the IR blaster, sealing the battery, and dropping the 128 gig option. However, touchwiz/android is running circles around android at the moment. How about you go on YouTube, type in iOS 8 sucks, and see for yourself.

'Documented' issues are very different from actually experiencing issues. I personally prefer to try things myself rather than relying on 'documented' experiences from other people. Never had any issues with iOS myself, and I still find it the best, most stable and most enjoyable to use mobile operating system out there.

Still waiting for Google to catch up with iOS. Seems they

You're right they are, that's why I do my own testing and reviews. I believe in putting my devices thru the paces, especially when I paid just over $1,000 for it. Based on my expensive experience, the last 21 months (cause iOS 7 was pretty bad too), with iOS 8 have been terrible. I eagerly anticipated iOS 8, after the issues I had with iOS 7. Not only did several iOS 7 issues carry over, but iOS 8 had a bunch of new ones, the vast majority of them still persist today with 8.4.. I've written a few emails to Apple, not just venting here, and not to my surprise, received no response. I'm not a fanboy, I'm a consumer and won't hesitate to call a company out on its BS. The last two years of iOS have been iBS. If this year isn't better, I'm out for a couple years. I'm waiting a couple months before I buy this time, if I buy.

Jedii has always let it straight so I'm pretty sure he's not exaggerating his issues. He is just giving his honest experience over the past year. Does his experience mirror yours and mine? Nope! Since moving over to the iPhone I have had 0 problems with software stability and hardware but that's my experience, not his or yours.

Thanx GH1. As consumers, we spend a lot of money for these devices, and expect them to perform. We/I have every right to voice our displeasure when they don't. I still like and use iOS daily. That's why I'm qualified to speak.

Dude I couldn't care less what you say, as far as you telling me about iOS 8. I have the iPhone 6 plus, and I have my own experience. Ios 8.0-8.4.1 is utter crap, case closed. No way is iOS 8 buggy...GTFOH with that tale.

It's funny to me how people assume that because their experience has been bug-free that everyone else's must be the same.

"I've never ran into any issues with my phone. You're clearly lying about these glitches you keep mentioning."

How much sense does that make? Do we all use our phones the same way? Do we all run all of the exact same apps on our phones? People are idiots, man.

Right lol! Like I'm just making up issues, that flood the Web and YouTube. Anyway bro, I picked up my 64 gig note 5 today, and so far so good. Apple has gotta earn me back with iOS 9.

I picked up the 32GB in Black Sapphire (blue) on Friday. Early thoughts:

1. This thing is so damned solid! They stepped it up with the construction of the Note 4, but the glass & metal sandwich is just seamless. I love it.

2. The click eject pen is cool, but it seems like an unnecessary step.

3. I thought I would love the speaker placement & it does sound great, but I keep covering it during any game I play in landscape.

4. I'm glad that the 5x5 icon grid is back. Hasn't been around since the original Note. Made no sense.

5. Who gives a s**t about micro-SD & removable batteries? Tech nerds, that's who. Samsung Smart Switch transferred all the stuff from my Note 4 with ease.

6. Why the hell did they get rid of the ability to continuously scroll through the home screens? That has been something I have enjoyed on every Android I've ever had. Terrible omission & I'm seriously considering downloading a launcher to remedy this.

7. I was never a huge user of it, but there was no damned reason for getting rid of the IR blaster, especially considering that the S6 & Edge have it.

8. Where are all the good stock widgets?! All of them are terrible!

9. I haven't found one I absolutely love yet, but the themes are dope.

10. Got my girl the gold Edge+. She's in love! She previously had a Note 4 like me, but the white version had focusing issues with the camera. She returned it 3 times & it was always there, so she went back to iOS (iPhone 6).

Hit me up with your thoughts, Darkk.

One thing I forgot:

This thing is snappy as f*ck! The Note 4 was fast, but after I got Lollipop, I would encounter some serious instances of lag throughout the home screens. Hopefully, there won't be too many issues when Marshmallow drops.

Lastly, I still get the same data speeds (I'm with T-Mobile) at my house (usually from 10-30 down with spikes up to 50), but I got 123 down at my girl's house & was consistently getting over 100. That sh*t was crazy!

Sorry for the late response bro.

I'm pissed as hell at the removal of the blaster, I used it a lot. I like several of the widgets, and some I don't. I love the hell out of the screen grid on this big ass screen, and themes are cool.

I can't find any avengers themes, may have been so edge exclusive.
I did find 7 that I really like, my wife has the 64 gig white, and we searched all around for them. They were pretty much sold out.

I'm using smart switcher to move files from iOS, so it's taking a while. The S-Pen is simply bank bro, and the new features rock. I love the build quality, and the battery life is great so far. The Facebook app needs an update. So I can select pics from folders, but that's no biggie.

Speeds are really good, AT&T is fast, pretty consistent.
I'm used to the speaker placement due to the iPhone, so it's OK and sound loud and good. No overheating and no lag, so it's been a good experience so far. I'm gonna do a full review and YouTube it.

This phone is on point, plain and simple.

I do wish it had touch the status bar to go back to the top, when scrolling, but it's cool cuz it scrolls so fast. Keyword is smooth and fluid, even on the Web with haptic feedback on. That was an issue on the edge.

I have the dark blue theme, with the panther going right now. More themes will come, so I'm cool for now. I love how much smaller it is vs the 6 plus, with a bigger screen, that is awesome. I'm satisfied.

I look forward to the restore finishing, and being out in the wild with it. Great phone, and I'm glad I invested in it. One thing though, do you use reader mode say, on PA and get the comments enlarged vs the article? Let me know bro.

The reader mode strips everything thing away in the article, but the words. It's a cool feature. In the status bar of a Web page, you'll see the little R.
