  • First Batch of iPhone 6s Pre-orders Begin 'Preparing for Shipment'


    The iPhone 6s went on pre-order starting just this past Saturday, and the first to pre-order the device are, as of Wednesday, starting to see their order statuses change from "Processing Items" to "Preparing for Shipment," which in Apple speak means that Apple is getting the orders packaged up and ready to be sent to the carrier so that the carrier can deliver the device(s) to the buyer.

    Apple's Web site is telling first-wave buyers that their devices will deliver by September 25th, whether by UPS, FedEx, or some other courier. Typically, users get their orders on the day that the Web site specifies, but sometimes buyers will end up with their devices a day early because the courier wants to get the shipments done as soon as possible.

    Not all pre-orders of the iPhone 6s fall under their category. Due to limited stock at the beginning of the pre-order process, which Apple seems to have a problem with every single year, some orders will be delievered to the customer in September, and some orders won't even deliver until October. On the other hand, Apple promises that Apple Stores will have iPhone 6s stock on launch day and customers can walk right in to buy one on September 25th, while supplies last.

    Apple received quite a lot of pre-orders for both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus that it needs to keep up with; although the company hasn't released its official numbers yet, Apple CEO Tim Cook did say just this week that the Cupertino-based company is "on pace" to top last-year's opening weekend for the previous-generation iPhone, or in other words, Apple is expecting pre-order weekend to break a new sales record.

      I called in at 2:55am to pre-order mine. I checked my T-Mobile account and saw where it said Order placed at 10:05am. I chatted with a representative and this is what I was told why the time change and why my order wouldn't be affected on getting it on launch day.

      Hey Stacey. Thank you for reaching out. 1st just to make sure you've got peace of mind, No your order will not be affected by the difference in time. The reason you are seeing a different time on your order form is because our Order forms were down on the 12th. Our representatives were following down time procedures and placing the orders in a different system. We then had a team who went back in put the orders in the normal handset order system. You are seeing the time that our offline team moved your order over. This will not affect you getting your device on time [emoji4] *MarvaB

      I checked out T-Mobile.com and I should have my shipping date by 9/20. I was told that T-Mobile JUMP! and JUMP! On Demand customers have priority and overnight shipping before the other customers when ordering through the carrier and that I should receive my device on 9/25.
