  • Apple's iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Won't be Available on Launch Day in These States

    Even though the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are sold out online, in many places they will still be available for walk-in purchase on launch day, which is September 25th. This is the case in many places but Apple recently revealed in a press release that customers in Hong Kong, China, Japan and five US states wonít be able to walk-in to a local Apple Store and purchase their device on launch day. The five states that wonít sell the iPhone on launch day include: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon.

    If you happen to be in one of the aforementioned areas, you may not be a happy camper but donít blame Apple, blame the ďsharks that take advantage of tax-free iPhone sales and resell the devices for a larger markup instead!
    For those of you who didnít already know, Apple isnít taking reservations for either iPhone 6s model at this point so if you havenít already gotten one and you live in one of these exempt areas, there is no way you are getting one on launch day. As of right now, shipping times on most versions online have been pushed back roughly 3-4 weeks due to high demand (once again).

    Based on preliminary numbers, Apple claims that it is on track to beat last yearís sales record. If you happen to live in an area where the iPhone 6s models will be sold and you plan on buying one at a retail store on launch day, you better get there early!

      Mine is shipping via UPS. It was in Louisville, KY at 4:56 pm when they scanned it departing. It was scanned in Houston, TX at 5:55 pm. That was fast.

      It only makes sense to have different launch dates, I'm pretty sure other manufacturers do the same thing (ie Sony Playstation). Nothing worse than having a release date and not being able to get it :-( on said release date.
