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:
@iPhoneinCanada fyi. My iphone6 plus scheduled for 10/17-23 arrival date was just shipped and now I’m expecting it on 10/07!

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.
