iPhone 6s and 6s Plus pre-order now sold out – bring on the queuing!

If you want to get your hands on an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus on launch date the only option remaining is to go the old-fashioned route, i.e. go to an actual store.

Apple’s initial launch-day iPhone inventory is now sold out online, reports 9to5mac. This means that if you went to pre-order the devices from Apple’s online store, the earliest delivery date won’t be launch day: Friday September 25, instead delivery information shows that the earliest devices will be delivered between Sept. 29 and Oct. 6

After the record-breaking iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales last year, things are still growing for Apple, not only did iOS 9 hit 50% adoption rate after just five days this week, but sales are also set to beat last year’s – pretty impressive for an ‘s’ release.

Some may have noticed that Apple had already sold out by this point last year, but 2015’s pre-order period has been a week longer, and reports before the device’s announcement indicated Apple was preparing much more inventory.

However, it looks like those iconic 5am queues outside Apple Stores worldwide won’t be going away anytime soon.
