  • Fortunate iPhone 6s Customer Receives Rose Gold iPhone 6s Ahead of Delivery Estimate


    Although many iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus customers who pre-ordered their devices will be receiving them on or before September 25th, one lucky customer, a visual designer by the name of Adrienne Alpern, has received hers on Monday, September 21st, several days before the expected delivery date.

    Meanwhile, most other people who pre-ordered the device have shipping dates post-October due to the fact that pre-orders of many models of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus sold out. Apple notes that the company still plans to offer the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in stores on September 25th for walk-in customers.

    The iPhone Alpern received was an iPhone 6s in the rose gold color, as she excitedly shared pictures of on Twitter yesterday evening. The buyer notes that it was ordered directly through AT&T and not Apple, but it was clearly the act of the courier who delivered the device prematurely, and not the retail department, resulting in the fact that it was delivered so quickly.

    Alpern shared several photographs taken with the device from her Twitter account and even some 4K video footage along with her photos she took of the device, but notes that Twitter compresses the video so the full 4K experience can't really be enjoyed via Twitter posts.

    Below, we've included those Tweets sharing the 4K video that she shot, as well as one of the photographs that she shot with the iPhone 6s' rear-facing 12 megapixel camera. In addition, we've included a Geekbench benchmark test result that she performed on the iPhone 6s, showing that the device is quite the processing beast for just a simple mobile device:

      Shipping label created with delivery date today between 1:30pm-5:30pm. I highly doubt that will happen and expect it on 9/25 like T-Mobile.com says.

      Heard this morning on the news that anyone in a certain area of New York will not receive shipments for 3 days this week because UPS is not delivering due to the Pope being in town. I guess they are shutting down some streets. I'm 99% sure Friday is one of those days.

      He's just another guy. Why does shipping have to shut down because he's in town? And why so many zip codes? That's going to negatively affect businesses in all the areas. I understand he is the Catholic religious leader of the world. But he's not God. Everything shouldn't shut down because of one man coming through town. The rest of the world still continues to turn as usual. Are they scared someone is going to try and ship explosive packages while he's in town or something?

      Hmmm, so should I deliver 1% of customers of a phone or make sure the Pope is safe... Let me think about it for a second.

      I work on Capitol Hill and it's going to be a mess tomorrow. My daughter's school is closed tomorrow but I still have to work and my job think everything is going to run smoothly but I doubt it. My phone is shipping to Maryland so I'm not effected.

      Interesting. I just checked FedEx tracking and my 6S Plus has been in the NJ Depot since Sunday. There are no newer updates. Apple must tell the shippers not to deliver early or many would have them before launch. Just my thoughts.

      I'm not worried about people getting their phones. What about the rest of the packages from all those areas? All the businesses etc? And what about shipping packages makes the world more dangerous?

      The pope is just another human being....no more important than anybody else.
      I'm not sure if Pope is as important as me and you or not but have you seen the way UPS drivers drive? Lol.

      Mine is shipping via UPS, and departed Louisville, KY at 4:56 pm on 9/24/15. So I'm guessing sometime tomorrow mid-morning to early afternoon, as the local UPS facility is only about 15 minutes from my place. That's usually around when I get packages from them. So I should be coming home from work to a nice package waiting for me on my table!
