Apple Canada Starts Shipping Wave of ‘3-4 Week’ Estimate iPhone 6 Plus Pre-Orders

If you tried to make an iPhone 6 pre-order a couple weeks ago and missed the initial launch day shipment, most were given estimates of “3-4 weeks”, as part of a second wave. Apple has now started shipping out some of these orders, as numerous readers have informed us of expected delivery dates for the first week of October:

The past two weeks have most likely allowed Apple to ramp up iPhone 6 Plus stock, in preparation for today’s launch of the devices in more countries worldwide (plus Videotron and Tbaytel). Rumours yesterday pointed to Apple receiving 500,000 more iPhone 6 Plus models on October 8 from its suppliers.

    I ordered a plus… had to wait 3-4 weeks. Decided to try to get one through the reservation system. Got one on the first try. Picked it up at the Apple store last Saturday. Cancelled my online order. Used the phone for a couple days and was having trouble with wifi. Took it back to the Apple store last night, told them my problem. The manager at the store actually had a 64 gb Gold Plus replacement and swapped it over. Gotta say those dudes at Apple work pretty flawlessly. Aside from IOS 8.0.1 lol.

    I ordered my silver 128GB 6+ at 5am PST the first day and it still shows 3-4 weeks 🙁 you guys got me excited. Hopefully it’ll update soon. In the mean time I ordered and received a regular iPhone 6 from Apple to tide me over.

    I’ve had my 6+ since launch day and do indeed love it. But today I got a chance to go to the Apple Store and play with a 6 for a bit. Now I’m thinking of returning the 6+ and going with the 6.

    The 6’s screen seemed bigger than I expected for a 4.7″; I thought it would seem tiny coming from a Note 3 (why I went with the 6+), but it actually was quite good. And from a manageability standpoint, the smaller form factor was really much more enjoyable in my hand.

    Haven’t made up my mind yet, I have ’till October 3, but I am seriously torn now. Seems like I wouldn’t have much, if any, wait to get a 6.

    Anyone else who got a 6+ finding it just a bit unwieldy to use? I find the width is great, but the height makes it a bit awkward; significantly (relatively speaking) taller than the Note 3.

  • I have a mini review coming and everytime I question the size, the amazing screen hooks me right back in. Plus OIS in the camera is pretty nice.

    Pre-ordered from Bell 6 plus on 18th, was quoted 3-4 weeks to ship, arrived on 25th. I’m in shock, in a good way.

    I love the extra real estate . I am a person who has always typed with two hands on a smartphone. So when it came time to make a decision it was a no brainer for me. I sold my mini as I now have no use for it . This iPhone 6+ by far is the best phone I’ve ever used . And I’ll never go back to a 4″ screen.

  • D

    Doh! So excited that it could apply to me too but not yet. Hopefully that will change soon!

  • Salinger

    It’s not the screen size, I love that! And I love the battery life to be sure. It’s just with the top and bottom bezels, it really is a pocketful and a bit clumsy handling. When traveling and on vacation, I’m just thinking it’s going to be a bit too cumbersome to handle.

    I always type two handed as well and typing in portrait is great, but I find it pretty much impossible to type on the 6+ in landscape, it’s just too big.

  • Salinger

    Yup, plus the awesome battery life. That’s why I’m so torn.

    I’m going to go back to the Apple store tomorrow and go back and forth between the two and see what I think.

    I was very disappointed to see in-store that even with OIS, the iPhone Plus’s video mode still crops out 1/4 of the field of view. Was pretty sure the cropping was only needed for software stabilization.

    Do you know of any apps that capture video that override the software cropping?

  • Marye

  • Geoffrey Spencer

    I am still waiting. Sniff.

    I was up at 2:45 AM and sat in front of my iMac for the 3 AM. Waited two hours, ended up getting two iPhone 6+ but the wrong ones (wrong colour and wrong flash drive). Canceled them when I woke up and got the right one only to be told 3-4 weeks.

    Pathetic Apple. Need pre-orders website fixed before next year!!! You are getting an F grade from me.

  • Brad
