Canadian iPhone 6s Pre-Order and Launch Guide

Share:

Unlocked iPhone 6s pre-orders go live tonight at 12:01AM PDT/3:01AM EDT on Apple.ca, while carriers such as Rogers, TELUS and Bell will follow suit shortly afterwards (MTS and SaskTel most likely will launch later).

Iphone 6s preorder

With the pre-order set to go live on Apple.ca in just over 6 hours, here’s a quick and dirty guide that answers some of the same pre-order and launch questions we get every year.

What does the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus cost unlocked from Apple? 

iPhone 6s

  • 16GB – $899
  • 64GB – $1029
  • 128GB – $1159

iPhone 6s Plus

  • 16GB – $1029
  • 64GB – $1159
  • 128GB – $1289

AppleCare+ prices for iPhone 6s–click here.

Shipping is free of course; customers are limited to 2 models each (if history repeats itself). You have 15 days to return the phone (free returns) if you’re not happy with it.
Pre-ordering from Apple using the Apple Store iOS App

Set your alarm for 10 minutes before 12:01AM PDT/3:01AM EDT, as that’s when the fun begins (and your credit card cries). Download the Apple Store iOS app and get ready to make your purchase once the pre-order window goes live.

It’s been the fastest and one of the most reliable ways to pre-order Apple products thus far. Even Apple thinks so, as they are advertising the app’s magical buying powers in the App Store right now:

If you’re reading this before the Apple Store goes down, setup your payment method online now, so when you do make your pre-order, you don’t need to fill out a credit card, but just enter in the security code. Just click here to go your Account and add your payment method.

Looks like the store is down already:

If you have multiple iOS devices, have them ready with the Apple Store app signed in and ready. If you encounter an “unavailable” error (like people experienced last year), read up and try this trick that worked for us.

Pre-ordering from Apple.ca

You can also pre-order the traditional way on the web too. What some people do is download a web browser plugin that refreshes a web page constantly on its own. This allows you to sit back, while the browser extension constantly refreshes the Apple Online Store until it goes online.

Again, once the store goes online, click quickly and make your selections. If you made a mistake, don’t worry, you can cancel it the next day or earlier. Just CHECK OUT and let Apple TAKE YOUR MONEYYY!

Reserve and Pick Up from Apple.ca [UPDATE]

Reserve and Pick Up is available this year via Apple’s website or the Apple Store iOS app. The specific reservation link from last year doesn’t work, as Apple has made unique links generated only when you add a specific model to your cart and click on the Reserve and Pick Up link:

Pre-ordering from Rogers, TELUS and Bell

The ‘Big 3’ had online reservation systems for iPhone 6 last year, and should have them again this year. Here were last year’s start times:

What does the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus cost on contract? 

Rogers – iPhone 6s

16GB – $398.99
64GB – $528.99
128GB – $658.99

iPhone 6s Plus

16GB – $528.99
64GB – $658.99
128GB – $788.99

Fido – iPhone 6s

16GB – $399 ($899 outright)
64GB – $529 ($1,029 outright)
128GB – $659 ($1159 outright)

iPhone 6s Plus

16GB – $529 ($1,029 outright)
64GB – $659 ($1,159 outright)
128GB – $789 ($1,289 outright)

Bell/Virgin – iPhone 6s

16GB – $398.99 ($914.99 outright)
64GB – $528.99 ($1054.99 outright)
128GB – $658.99 ($1194.99 outright)

iPhone 6s Plus

16GB – $528.99 ($1054.99 outright)
64GB – $658.99 ($1194.99 outright)
128GB – $788.99 ($1334.99 outright)

TELUS – iPhone 6s

16GB – $400 ($900 outright)
64GB – $530 ($1,030 outright)
128GB – $660 ($1160 outright)

iPhone 6s Plus

16GB – $530 ($1,030 outright)
64GB – $660 ($1,160 outright)
128GB – $790 ($1,290 outright)

Essentially, the prices are the same across the board, give or take $1. Rogers and Bell require a minimum $80 per month plan for a 2-year subsidy, while TELUS requires a minimum $70 per month plan on contract.

Other stores that offer iPhone 6s reservations [Update]

Try the following stores for pre-orders as well:

  • Best Buy: pre-orders now available in-store, $50 deposit required
  • Wireless Wave: they took Rogers and Bell pre-orders last year for iPhone 6; $50 refundable deposit
  • Costco Wireless Kiosks: some took unofficial pre-order lists with pen and paper
  • Other stores to try: London Drugs, The Mobile Shop within Real Canadian Superstores, Tbooth Wireless, any Glentel chain, Walmart, Target, The Source, Staples, etc

When will I receive my iPhone 6s pre-order? [Update]

The iPhone 6s launch takes place on September 25, 2015. That’s when you’ll receive your iPhone if you live within Zone 1 delivery areas according to Apple’s delivery map. This time around, Apple wants you to enter your postal code via this link ONLY if you have a ship date of 9/25-9/29, to tell you when your phone will arrive:

when will iphone arrive

Update: Here’s how to track your iPhone 6s order and get your UPS tracking number.

If you pre-ordered through Rogers, TELUS or Bell, delivery depends on how much stock they receive.

If you’ve made it this far, good for you. We are repeating some information from last year, so take a look at that guide here to have some more questions answered.

  • Metromiller

    Awesome guide again, Gary and team. Are you guys upgrading to this phone? I’ve always done the non “S” variants on a two year cycle, starting with the 3G, then 4, 5, 6 Plus. I’ve never been superbly tempted to jump ship on my cycle and grab any of the S phones, but this one seems to be a bit of a better upgrade compared to past models. Anyone see it the same way or completely opposite?

    Secondly, is Kijiji or other direct sale methods still the best way to go, if I wanted to sell my perfect condition, unlocked 6 Plus 128gb? Most of the trade-in sites just don’t seem to offer top dollar. This is old news and I’m pretty versed in selling, but I’m just hoping that there’s something new that I’m missing.

    Thanks!!

  • Davey_fl

    I just sold two of my 6 plus 128gb unlocked on kijiji – went very smooth. Got $900 a piece. I think I did ok. That means my cost of owning the phone was .51c a day (355 days). Hope preorder goes smooth. I’d rather do instore pickup and delivery.

  • Sly

    Hi Gary,

    The launch date is September 25th, not 26th.

  • Sly

    I usually use Ebay because I’m weary of dealing with kijiji buyers. What do you do to ensure you get the $$$ and don’t get scammed/robbed? thanks!

  • DaveMcG

    Thanks for this as always guys!

  • Davey_fl

    I meet them in front of an apple store, public place. and i hold the phone and accessories and show it to them. They don’t touch the phone until they’ve handed me the money.I’ve sold on ebay as well but there are SO many scammers on ebay. Stressful going through a paypal chargeback.

  • Sly

    good idea thanks for the tip!

  • Magrat22

    Great info Gary thanks. just wanted to add to the above edit that Future Shop is no more 🙁

  • Magrat22

    Yeah I agree, I do this as well actually find Second Cup a great place to meet. I do let them look at it but I’m really careful with my vetting process initially. I only use email and a special kijiji email address I set up. I then put a word at the end of the ad that I ask them to say when replying so I know they read the whole thing. Because too many TL:DR people 😛 Never had a problem.

  • Magrat22

    For top dollar Kijiji really is still the way to go. Orchard (app you can get from app store) is offering okay amounts but still not as good as Kijiji. I got offered $656 for 128gb 6.

  • Andrew Steinberg

    Will I be able to order from Apple App Store a phone with contract with Rogers?

  • holly

    Can you be more specific in how you word your ad? That sounds like an interesting idea, but still not clear on the execution. Thanks!

  • Whoops, fixed, thanks!

  • Cheers Dave

  • Magrat22

    No, just unlocked phones. You can however reserve a phone and potentially sign a contract with Rogers that way.

  • Yes we’re going to the iPhone 6s Plus.

    Depends on how badly you want to be an early adopter 😉

    Kijiji and Craigslist definitely can get a higher dollar. You just gotta be smart about it, like Magrat22 said, meet in a public place, maybe bring a friend if you need to. Ignore the lowballers and tire kickers.

  • Magrat22

    Sure, I do a really good job at advertising the phone well, like I clean it up and put it in good lighting to take the pictures. Then put the full specs in tech and as much as possible non-tech jargon. I keep it as short as I can it’s not a novel but it’s not two lines either. At the end it’ll write: “If you’ve read to here please reply with ‘Sharknado’ in the subject line of your message. I figure if they’ve taken the time to actually read to the bottom then they look at the pictures too and I avoid the whole. So how much space is there? Can I see pics of it? What colour is it? Crap that I used to get before I started the ‘word’ 🙂

  • Mike

    The creator of that map must of been on the Apple Maps V1.0 team ????

  • Steve

    That’s too cheap. I managed to get $1100 for my 6 Plus 128, and sold within 2 days of advertising. The girl picked up at my house first thing in the morning lol.

  • Steve

    That’s kind of suspect. Smart people actually want to place their sim in the phone and test it out first. I haven’t met one person that just forked over the cash without testing it.

  • Steve

    You’re probably ten times more likely to get scammed on eBay, then on Kij or CL. Nothing beats a local cash in-person transaction. If paranoid, just meet at a public place. I usually just get them to pickup at my house, as it usually gives the buyer a bit of assurance that they won’t get scammed by a dead or faulty product.

  • Ron

    So what do you do if they don’t reply with ‘Sharknando’ in their message? Ignore the potential buyer?

  • Steve

    That depends on where you live, but Kij is pretty much dead in Vancouver. Craig’s is the best place to advertise locally (as well as some forums like RFD or Howard’s).

  • Dimitri

    There is no futureshop anymore. Its just Best Buy. You might want to change that as well.

    Thanks for the info though! Rogers did confirm via texts that it will start at 9am EST.

  • Magrat22

    Hey Dimitri, I mentioned that in a message below but I think the above is a copy and paste from last years info so probably not editable.

  • Magrat22

    Oh really, Craigs is dead creepy in Calgary or for women it is at least. Had to stop using it way too many weirdo’s. Maybe it’s improved this was 5 years ago.

  • Steven Legault

    I’m eligible for an upgrade from Bell, but my question is, would I be able to keep my current plan? If so I’ll do the 2-year…

  • Magrat22

    Hard to know without knowing your plan but for me with Rogers I had to move to a plan that was at least $80 and I know Telus you have to be on a plan that’s at least $70.

  • Matt

    Who ever wrote this ad, got the pricing structure way off the band wagon, as I talked to bell, the phones are 1289 plus tax out of contract for the 128 gig 6S plus, and the subsidy for a phone on a 2 year plan is 611$ which means the phone cost is 678 plus tax, so unless these prices listed are taxes in…which my math shows they are not, then whomever gotten this info is way way way off the bandwagon

  • Magrat22

    Check the Bell site, the math is correct. I just checked it two minutes ago and all the above number are shown.

  • Cy

    I really hope that Reserve & Pick up will be an option this year. Has anybody called into an Apple Store to confirm whether or not Apple will be offering this?

  • Steve

    I haven’t experienced any creeps out here. A couple of no-show’s and looky-loo’s when I sold my car, but no wierdo’s. One thing I noticed is that most of buyers of my Apple stuff (iPads, macbook, and previous iPhone’s) were mainly younger girls who were in college, and picked up at my home.

  • Lol

    A couple days ago the reserve link wasn’t working at all, and today when I checked it there was the iPhone 6s added to the background, so I’m sure it will be.

  • Sly

    Reserve and pickup link still not up

  • ben

    Done!! 6s+ 128G space grey, using apple store app

  • wuju

    5 mins past, still shows “We’ll be back” 🙁

  • Sly

    same here grrrr

  • mike

    still down

  • Nafizur

    wow so i was able to order 4

  • Sidney

    reserve and pick up not working…10min past.

  • wuju

    6S Plus Rose Gold ordered and it shows expected delivery date Oct 1-7. Anyone shows earlier for the same one?

  • Nafizur

    i ordered 2 rose gold and shows delivery date of 9/25

  • AppleCrumble

    Order placed for 2 Rose Golds!! 64GB 6s and 64GB 6s Plus. 9/25 can’t come fast enough. Woohoo

  • DaveMcG

    It’s a different reserve and pickup link.. during checkout on app, it said, interested in pciking up in store? I clicked that link and followed on phone, worked great. Got two reservations for same time at Southgate. 1 space grey 64gb 6S and 1 rose gold 64gb 6S. Nice!

  • Sly

    ok guys, I got my reserve and pickup!

    The reserve and pickup link doesn’t work but use the iOS app store!

    There’s an small link option for reserve and pickup after you add to cart. Then follow through the purchase screens using your Apple ID and then at the end you can select “Unlocked” and specify a specific pickup time. works fine good luck!

  • Nafizur

    it seems like not many were interested in getting it this year…

  • DaveMcG

    Sorry, didn’t copy link during process on phone, just wanted to get them through since I had to do it twice for the two colors.

  • wuju

    Gee. Mine already bumped out and I ordered literally the moment the online store went live…. 🙁

  • DaveMcG

    Same as my experience.

  • Tyler

    Got 2 Rose Gold phones on reserve pick up at Chinook. Easy.

  • Matt

    me too, and wow, the price is really gone up with the american dollar

  • Lol

    Got two iPhone 6s+ 64gb Rose gold reserved.

  • Horacio

    Got 1 Rose Gold 64GB to pickup at Apple Store in Toronto Eaton Centre

  • DaveMcG

    Thankfully they allowed two reserve and pickups for single phone purchases from the same apple ID this year. Didn’t last year and it was a pain to get both mine and wifes.

  • Bjay O

    Got 64gb 6S rose gold for 9/25 delivery. It wasn’t as hectic as last year…. Interest or stock levels? Not so sure which.

  • Sly

    I think its less interest due to high Canadian prices..

  • Davey_fl

    yes got my 3 6+ 128s reserved for pickup. That seemed much easier than last year!

  • Sidney

    Thanks a lot! 😀

  • Horacio

    Yep, much easier and it seems stock is pretty high this year, at least for Canada.

  • Omar

    I keep getting the “our doors are closed message” and the reserve link says “service not available”

  • mike

    it keeps asking me to enter my phone number for reserve pickup

  • Dimitri

    Its meowmix from the forums lol. This is me here on this & mobilesyrup.
    I agree even if its a copy & paste, they should have edited it out lol

  • Ray

    Geez, I thought I was pretty quick on the App Store app, but my order confirmation doesn’t say delivers by 25th, instead it says delivers by 25-29. Hope its the 25th. At any rate, it is ordered!!

    FYI it seems as if the website is a mess. Good thing I was refreshing both the app and the webpage. App went up quicker.

  • Omar

    Sorry, “our virtual doors are about to open”

  • Billy

    Every time I try to pre-order and reserve in store, it brings me to a “Update your Apple ID” page that never loads, and eventually goes back to asking for my Apple ID login again…

  • Sly

    See my note below about reserve ad pickup, it works but on the iOS app store

  • Nafizur

    meh… no interest at all.. all models still available except rose gold 6s PLUS.

  • Magrat22

    Hey!! How you doing 🙂 Fancy meeting you on an iPhone website 😛

  • Alan Yau

    Same here

  • runner

    Not a surprise at all, look at the insane prices.

  • Cristian Rex Sanchez

    reserved, worked for me in Apple Store app in iPhone, I got 6 128 space gray and 6 64 space gray to pick up @ Dix 30

  • Helena

    has the preorder began in ottawa?

  • dvdung1997

    the delivery date will depends greatly on your shipping address. I for instance has just ordered my iPhone 6s Plus 16GB to ship to UBC campus and it estimates 25th September as the delivery date (it’s on a seperate link that I no longer know)
    and yeah, Apple Store for PC has just closed the door again

  • Billy

    I had to change my Apple ID password and somehow that worked. Got my preorder in!

  • Kyle Mitton

    I am waiting on a confirmation code, has anyone received theirs?

  • dvdung1997

    I finished my order 30 minutes ago and still no email

  • Mike

    I have two 128GB Space Grey 6s ordered, one for pickup and one for delivery. I only want one, so I’ll cancel the other before the 25th. I’ll probably cancel the delivery so I can get it earlier and don’t need to sit around the house waiting for the UPS truck.

  • Mike

    I’ve received two e-mails, one confirming the delivery and one confirming my in-store pickup reservation. One of them will be cancelled before the 25th.

  • Welcome!

  • Magrat22

    Yes, it may sound silly but I’m an early adopter in most things or used to be so I sold my old tech on Kij very often and found those that didn’t read the full ad where just time wasters. They ask questions that are all in the ad it’s time wasting and I’m a very busy person!! 🙂

  • Alan Yau

    Thanks, finally got it to work and even an hour after preorders started, I managed to get a 9:30am slot. Tried to reserve another one for my brother-in-law but since he wanted a Gold Plus 64gb, they were all out in the Vancouver area by the time I got his password changed.

  • Dimitri

    Question my fellow friends. My friend does not have a Passport or a Drivers license. He has a LCBO ( Age of majority car), SIN, Health card with Photo ID, Scotia bank Visa. He reserved it via Apple but he is unsure if they will allow those ID’s to do a upgrade on his Rogers account. Anyone with insight can help? Thanks!

  • Dimitri

    Thank you!

  • K_pow3ll

    Got My Reserve and Pickup @ The Sq1 Apple Store in Missasuaga Ontario
    1 64gb Space Grey iPhone6s +
    Waiting on Rogers to update there site

  • anon

    rogers pre order live, but only 1 6S… the rest is 6S+. lame

  • AEdouard

    In Montreal Kijiji is the way to go. It’s really fantastic. Sold a ton of stuff on there. I guess it depends on where you are.

  • Chuck Kahn

    I only see reserve and pick up for September 25th. When will reserve and pickup for the 26th be available?

  • Sly

    25th is the actual launch date not 26th. I don’t think you can choose a specific date, just a pickup time on the 25th.

  • Chuck Kahn

    there must be some point at which Saturday pickups become available.

  • Tyler-Chris

    Rogers doesn’t seem to ever have had good 6S stock (only the 16gb Rose Gold), so ended up doing the Reserve and Pick-Up for the 6s 64gb Space Grey. I put down that I wanted “Carrier Option” vs Unlocked. Question for people who have done this before: do they still sell me an unlocked phone (ie. $1029) but just help me setup the phone to work with my carrier? Or can you actually buy it from Apple this way with the subsidized price with Rogers (and thus it will be locked to Rogers)?

  • johnnygoodface

    hmmm …. if the loonies is the same, the price will be the same next year too 😉 But then I totally agree with the “insane” thing… I got myself a 6s Plus 64GB but to my defence I’m coming from a 3 year iPhone 5… Was due for an upgrade! 🙂

  • Usually after the launch, the will make the later available… Usually after 9pm (when store close usually), you click on the link and you can book for the day after based on stocks.

  • johnnygoodface

    Ouch! that’s a pricy bast..rd 🙂 Got the 6s Plus 64GB

  • Tyler-Chris

    Actually I know see on Rogers that rather than go to device reservation, they show the hone 6s and 6s plus as devices you can upgrade to. It does say that “phone will ship after manufacturer’s official launch date”. They seem to have stock of all the 6s phones (which is weird that it doesn’t sync up with the Device Reservation page which only shows the 16gb Rose Gold in 6S)

  • Billy

    I preordered the 64GB 6S in Rose Gold last night and selected the option of picking it up in store. It seems like it went through, and I got an email saying the phone was reserved. However, when I go into the Apple store app and click on “reservations”, it says my account doesn’t currently have any reservations in place. Is this happening to anyone else??

  • AEdouard

    Either there is way more stock than last year, or the low CAD really took a bite in demand. I reserved a silver 6s Plus at 8 this morning after finding out you could actually do the reserve and pick-up thing with a carrier contract. There was stock all over the place.

  • DaveMcG

    I bet that is genius bar reservations only. If you got the email saying you are confirmed for in store pickup, you are golden.

  • I have a feeling both is right… but also having pre-order and launch 2 weeks apart (usually it’s only 1 week) might well for stock.

  • Tyler-Chris

    Do you know if picking up with Carrier Contract means you pay the subsidized price and get a locked phone to that carrier? Or are you still buying an unlocked phone at unlocked price, but they help you get the phone set up and activated with your carrier?

  • AEdouard

    You are paying the subsidized price, meaning you pay nothing at the Apple Store, your carrier will charge you on your account on your next bill. I’ve done it this way since 2010. It’s way more pleasant than dealing with the carriers directly in their stores.

  • DaveMcG

    Yes, I just checked in my app too and see the same and am quite sure if you made a genius bar reservation for some made up problem, you’ll see it in there. In store pickup for iphones is a special thing.

  • Billy

    Thank you! I can rest easy again 🙂

  • Tyler-Chris

    Thanks for the quick response. In that case, do they have enough stock for locked phones for each carrier or lock them to the carrier then and there? They didn’t ask in the reservation process which carrier I was with…? Thanks again

  • Kirk

    Good for you Johnny. It’s a huge welcome upgrade that you’ll love. I got my iPhone 6, can’t afford yearly upgrades… I’m not rich lol.

  • Alan Yau

    They don’t actually get locked until they get activated, all the phones are essentially the same until you activate them with your carrier.

  • Alan Yau

    This is how I do the math every year to get an upgrade at minimal or no cost:
    – iPhone 6 upgrade with Rogers Sept/2014 = $480 device balance
    – Sept 2015, remaining device balance = $240
    – Sell iPhone 6 64GB with AppleCare = $800 (Sold it a couple of weeks ago for max value and since I had time, I didn’t negotiate with potential buyers. Phone was in like new condition, having never been out of a case and with a tempered glass screen protector from day 1)
    – iPhone 6s 64GB upgrade = $529 + $240 (device balance) = $769
    – I have 5000 Rogers reward points, so -$50 = $719
    = $719 + taxes = $805.28
    – So I have an upgrade for $5.28 out of pocket and I will shell out the extra for AppleCare again to ensure max value next year.
    I have done the same thing since the iPhone 4 and I have had years where I have paid $50 extra to cover the cost, and years where I came out ahead.

  • Kirk

    That’s good for you Alan. I guess I consider myself a pack rat because since the iPhone 3G I never considered selling my phone, I like to keep each of them (still have original packing) so if I did exactly what you described I could probably upgrade.. But I also like buying it straight from apple and not locked to a carrier (I know it can possibly be jail broken). At the end of the day my phone plan is one of those day one 6GB super plans that I will never cancel and they will force me to do that if I go with any upgrades which I don’t want to do anyway. So to each their own. It’s a great phone tho. 🙂

  • Alan Yau

    I totally get that and in fact, the person that bought my 6 has one of those plans he didn’t want to lose and paying the $800 made sense. I have a corporate discount code on my account that takes a 6GB Share Everything plan down to $87. I get reimbursed through work anyways, so I have no issue with losing my old 6gb retention plan.

    However, I did consider buying outright this year to get the $20/month BYOD discount and making up the difference that way.

  • Tek

    I also got Rose Gold 64GB @ Apple Store in Square 1, 8-8:30 Reservation. Was extremely easy this year. Logged in at approx 3:05am

  • AEdouard

    What alan said

  • Tek

    Hey K_pow, I’ve also reserved at Sq 1 AS in ‘Sauga, what’s your reserve time, mine’s 8-8:30am. 64GB Rose gold 6s Plus

  • Tek

    Guy & Gals – I got my order in for a 64GB Rose gold 6S Plus first thing, pick up @ 8am, and then got another 128GB Space Grey 6S Plus to be picked up @ 8:30am both at The Apple Store @ Square 1 in Mississauga. Do you think i’ll be able to get both at my initial 8am pick up time slot

  • Kirk

    Yeah… You’re in a good place because if you like that method you’ll always folks (like me) who don’t want to change their plans… 🙂 enjoy your 6s! …. Not jealous…but I am lol

  • eszai

    I miss the iphone 6s plus rose gold order last night. If I want to buy from
    kijiji, should I request receipt from the seller? How do the transfer of
    warranty work? Do the warranty go with the seller or with the phone ? Any
    advice?

  • The phones are unlocked but then are activated and locked to the carrier of your choosing (Rogers)

  • K_pow3ll

    11Am is my time lol, coming from Brampton did not want to deal with morning traffic :). Side note I may cancel because i got a reserve from Rogers which is only a 5 minute drive vs a 20 min. Im just happy to know that i get atlas one on launch day. Also wanted to use my rewards and upgrade with Rogers + they allowed me to keep my 6gb plan. Go Rogers Go

  • Steven Legault

    I got the reserve and pickup. When you go to the store to pickup, do you have the option to sign up for a plan and get it subsidized or is it unlocked only from the apple store?

  • The website gave an option for both when you set it up. If you change your mind it shouldn’t be a problem.

  • Steven Legault

    okay perfect. I selected the ‘with carrier’ plan but wasn’t sure what exactly that meant. Thanks!

  • As Sunday morning, the iPhone 6s, 6splus are sliding to 3-4 weeks wait…. But I’m very surprise u can still have some of them in most stores, for reserve and plick-up….

  • DaveMcG

    Probably. It’s just a way to minimize how many people are there in each time slot. Since they are already helping you, it’s trivial to add another phone to checkout and it just makes the next timeslot less busy.

  • Jessica

    Sweet! I was curious as to how it worked! I’ve never reserved and picked up in store. Kinda surprised that I didn’t know it existed lol. Looking forward to moving up from my 5. Apple Store experience is always so much better than carrier stores. Oh, so I have a silly question then: do our reservations guarantee that we will get a phone? I reserved mine for after work and keep wondering if there’s a chance they’ll just sell out. It’s paranoia, really. Thanks for sharing!

  • Yes guaranteed pretty much

  • Tek

    Thanks @ DaveMcG

  • Tek

    Hi Jessica – yes there’ll be a device waiting for you since you reserved in store. If you got the confirmation email then you’re good to go!!

  • Chengbo Qian

    I’m hoping to get the Iphone 6 when the price drops. Any idea when that will likely happen with the major carriers?

  • Jessica

    Awesome! I did get my confirmation email. Thanks! Now, we wait.. haha.

    I had pre-ordered through Rogers and Reserve/Pick-up at Apple store. I spoke to Rogers today and CSR said if your order is processed, that means they have the phone in atock and it will ship on the 25th. Also, pre-ordering online saves the $40 connection fee (which you would have to pay if buying through Apple).

    As such, going to keep my order with Rogers (and receive phone likely on Monday Sep 28). The Apple reserve/pickup apparently can’t be cancelled online, so I guess I just don’t show up during my reservation time? Seems inefficient though, would think it’s better for Apple to know i’m not coming…

  • Chuck Kahn

    “Reservations are available starting at 8:00 am on September 26.”

  • Not going to happen soon… the iPhone 6 and 6 plus price were adjust according to the $Can exchange rate. Since the CAN$ lost 30% compare to the US$, so the usually 100$ price drop that you see after 1 year was cancelled by that adjustment…. 🙁

  • DaveMcG

    Telus is already showing a “sale” price on the 6 and 6+ it’s probably the best you’ll get.

  • Zaidc

    I reserved and ordered the new phone.

    Should i go in store or just wait for delivery?

  • Ray

    Apple Store order status page is down, so hopefully preorders start getting some updates and things start moving. I am stuck on my backup HTC Windows phone as I sold my 6 Plus and it is driving me nuts. Need my iPhone back haha. First world problems.

  • Lol so true! welcome home

  • Ray

    It is back up and no change. Still at “Processing Items”.

  • Mac

    I get my new iPhone is September 25!!

  • Hydro Mac

    Was on the phone on Sunday with Apple. Was told that unlocked phone are not available in Canada yet, but your site says they are. Who’s right?

  • Ray

    When you preorder from Apple’s site, that is what you are getting. An unlocked phone. That is how it always has been. Unless you go into an Apple Store and go through a carrier, you are getting an unlocked phone if you pay the full price.

  • Ray

    Another site is reporting that some customers outside of the USA (Canada, Germany and UK) are starting to receive “Preparing for Shipping” notifications on their order statuses.

  • They are right as it is unavailable until the Sept. 25 launch date. But Apple does sell unlocked iPhones in Canada.

  • Steve

    You’re talking about orders through the apple site only right?

  • Steve

    They’ll most likely ship it out on the 24th so you’ll get it on the 25th.

  • TLX

    Clues that this is a scam:
    1) Yahoo email account – real businesses have real email domains
    2) No contact information – no phone number or address
    3) No kiosk info – where is the kiosk?
    4) ALL CAPS – typical of foreign scammers
    5) Limited time “great” deal – why not just reserve with Apple?

    Don’t know for sure that this is a scam or not, but anybody stupid enough to send a
    copy your their licence to an unknown email account deserves to have
    their identity stolen.

  • My order status didn’t not change yet… but my credit card got charge today… 🙂 So i’m assuming preparing for shipping status is coming soon 🙂

  • DaveMcG

    You already made your choice when you reserved. If you didn’t pick in store pickup, do not go to a store expecting to get a phone.

    I pre-ordered the iPhone 6s Plus 128 space grey, however directly with TELUS business online. This is the first time in many years that business customers could even have the option to pre-order a new iPhone! Is this too good to be true?

    When setting up the details one the phone. to finalize the order at 7 Saturday mornin the TELUS sales rep told me I’m 2nd in line, yet…..there WILL be a delivery wait and the soonest my phone be delivered would be approximately 10 days after launch day!! Makes me think retail customers get priority, again.

    The rep said because it was a my order was for the 128 plus model, yet he said even if I purchased the 6s, I still wouldn’t get it on launch day.! Unbelievable.

    I will say, TELUS has improved the pre-order process with the quick turn around email response and phone call early in the morning on the weekend!!
    I was very impressed, but again … if TELUS cannot deliver the phone on launch day, what the HELL is the point of pre-ordering.

    I reserved a phone at the Apple Store as a backup, if TELUS fails on this one that will be the last straw for me.

    Let me know if there’s any other Telus business iPhone pre-order customers out there, what kind of feedback did they give you regarding delivery expectations?

    I totally get that Apple controls stock to carriers and they don’t want to over promise and under deliver.

    Any business TELUS pre-orders out there?

    Good luck all!!

  • Steve

    I ordered through the Rogers business system. Who knows when I’ll get it. Your post makes me think it will take a while now.

    Hi guys,
    I just spoke to a Fido rep on chat and she told me that my $65 plan ($35 voice + $30 6Gb Data) is no longer considered a Max plan. She told me I would have to get a minimum $40 voice plan and can keep my 6GB add on if I wanted to be considered in Max plan to get the maximum subsidy.
    Last year, I was able to get the iPhone 6 with my current plan. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

  • Sam

    That is correct the total to be a max plan now needs to be 70$ or it will be classified as a smart plan.. this changed a few months ago

  • MGSayah

    I reserved 2 iPhone 6S Plus from the same Apple Store, using two different Apple ID’s. Will I be able to buy them? Or is there a restriction by ID or credit card used?

  • There’s only a limit of two phones models per person I believe, you should be okay.

  • xxxJDxxx

    I got a plain text email from “USA Batch Processor” this morning with all the details of my order. Saying its shipped from F/G distribution center in Elk Grove, CA. Anyone else? Seems unusual as I’ve never seen an e-mail like this for any of my past iphone orders.

  • AEdouard

    Warranty is with the phone’s serial number. No need for a receipt.

  • Agent B

    Yeah i called today, TELUS says it could be a 4 week until ship for the 6s+ phones. I don’t get it, they will be in stock at retail stores. Makes me think the whole ” pre order” is simply that..a pre-order without reservations.

  • Steve

    Some Non business customers have said they’ve already received tracking numbers for their 6s+ phones.

    Next time I’m buying it from Apple unlocked.

  • jabohn

    I wonder when the carriers will update their pricing on the older phones. The iPhone 6 is cheaper on Apple’s site. For instance, iPhone 6, 62GB is $899 – carriers are still charing the old $989 price. My sister wants a new phone but doesn’t need the newest but it doesn’t make sense to buy one now if the prices are going to come down.

  • kass

    I reserved my iPhone 6s plus (rose gold) 64gb on sept 21st 2015 from Bell, I still haven’t received it !

    I understand that Apple controls all the phones but what is really taking so long! I will never reserve a phone from Bell again, only APPLE !

    Is any one else having this problem ?

  • kass

    have you received it?

  • Steve

    I went into the Apple Store 2 days after release and got one. Cancelled
    Preorder.
