Apple’s iPhone 6 Reserve and Pick Up option went live the night of the company’s pre-orders last Friday, and quickly sold out of phones allotted to be picked up in store.
In years past, the Reserve and Pick Up option would be replenished as new stock comes in, but as of now, Apple’s website no longer advertises the service on its retail page:
The Reserve and Pick Up link no longer shows options to view individual retail locations and their iPhone 6 stock, but rather a message that just reads “Please come back later.”:
The Apple Store in Toronto (Yorkdale) told us they were “not certain” if the option would return or not, while the Eaton Centre location said reservations had sold out. All the locations we contacted did say to visit the store on the morning of the launch as the only other option.
Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have completely sold out, as the now shipping estimates are at “3-4 weeks” for both models. Whereas a day ago, some 128GB configurations were still shipping in “7-10 days”.
Users have started to receive receipts from Apple via email, an indication shipping is imminent. Rogers and Fido customers have seen their orders move to “in progress”. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus can’t come soon enough!
The iPhone 6 is set to launch in Canada and 8 other countries this Friday, September 19.
