You have a better chance of finding a unicorn than an Apple iPhone 6 Plus on Friday
If you've been dreaming about walking into a store tomorrow, and walking out with a brand new Apple iPhone 6 Plus, you might as well stop dreaming now. According to a report published on Thursday, only 2% to 3% of the iPhone 6 models being shipped to retailers is the 5.5 inch phablet sized version of the handset. And the word is that only one color is being shipped at present.

Not only will it be next to impossible to find the iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow, if you do find one, it won't be a 16GB model That means you should expect to spend at least $399.99 on contract for the 64GB model of the first iPhone phablet.

As for the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6, you might be able to find all colors and all storage capabilities, if you make it inside a store before inventory is sold out. As to where to go tomorrow for your best bet at buying an Apple iPhone 6, consider that the Apple Stores will probably receive more shipments of the new iPhone, than any other retailer.

the price is too much for me to consider trying it out, i mean 1000 is a decent chunk of money that could go to something i need, i guess ill stick with my OPO

You don't have to get the top end model at all, so then it will be about 800 after taxes like a regular smartphone. If anyone really wants it, trying looking in Canada if you are near the border or UK if you are traveling through there. During the iPhone 5s release every UK store literally had hundreds available.

i don't want to spend 800 for a phone, my OPO costs like a quarter of that and its 64gb, i may if they get cheaper, or test out one of my friends if any gets it

That is the downside of Apple though, don't expect a high value/dollar ratio. If you want it, then that is your only choice. if you can do without it, then by all means.

I think 32gb should be the minimum. .. I mean com on its a bigger screen should be bigger memory.. why make a 16gb when its not going to be released right away... must be the $$$$$

I was curious as to where "batter" came in to play here. Does the author mean, like, a baseball player, or cake-batter or something? And the way he phrases it makes no sense: "You have a batter chance at finding a unicorn"??? What does that mean???

I'm first in line, so hopefully they have 2 128 gig pluses.

I thought you were getting your wife the regular iPhone 6? My brother already pre-ordered his and is expected soon (though he mentioned it coming in on Friday somehow).

She wants a plus, but I should said 64 gig for her. The 128 is for me. I just watched fed ex deliver 3 huge boxes to At&t. They were being discreet, lotsa new iPhones.

How may others in line, dude? I'm gonna run out later and scope it out. On another note, my iPad 2 is lagging seriously with iOS 8. Time for an upgrade.

Quite a few bro, they're coming out early. Most will wait till the sun goes down, since it's Vegas. iPad 2 needs to become an iPad Air, or mini 2 bro.

No doubt. Vegas is the shiznit! Gonna be out there in Nov.

18. darkkjedii

Posts: 30880; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

Then buy a Note 4, and STFU!

Read somewhere that the iPhone 6 is attracting many Android users as trade-ins are happening at some retailers. Don't know how true this is, but if so these devices are probably low end devices that the users are fed up of

My boy at AT&T just told me, that they have a very limited supply of pluses. A couple 128's in space gray, no gold, and a few slivers. And only 2 64's. My wife and I are first in line, so we are good to go. Get in line guys, if you want the plus, they're gonna go fast.
