In-Store Reservation
As always, making a reservation is your best bet. Apple began accepting reservations for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in the wee hours of the morning on Sept. 12. If you haven't already made a reservation, chances are the launch-day stock at your local Apple Store is already spoken for. In fact, Apple has ceased taking reservations for launch day. It will re-open reservations Sept. 26.
Those who made reservations should have received a confirmation email from Apple with details about picking up the iPhone. Arrive on time. Let Apple know you've made a reservation. Apple says those who arrive late or miss their reservation window altogether may not get the iPhone they want. Bring two forms of ID and your current phone. Expect the process to take 30 minutes.

Re: Apple 6s and 6s+
I just walked past the Apple Store in Santa Monica, CA and the line is obviously down the entire 3rd Street Promenade.  But, also present were a band of Verizon workers marching around with signs reading, "Get your new iPhone here! No line!"  Better yet, they were playing a song as they marched along: "I want you back" by the Backstreet Boys.  Clever.

Apple 6s and 6s+
I prefer buying rathr than leasing. I love my 6+. I use it for practically everything (from being a phone, to reading books, to exercise sessions and GPS)

Although the 6s+ is tempting for me I am going to wait for te Iphone 7 series.

 

Way to go Apple!!!!!

Re: Go for the big gigs
Yes they do deliver. In fact they have been doing this for many years since I got my iPhone 4S when it first came out since now I'm upgrading to the iPhone 6s through Sprint which I reserved on September 14, 2015. The last time I checked the tracking on my shipment it was heading out of Baltimore on 9/25/2015 and is now at the central receiving in Landover MD so I should receive my new iPhone 6s by the time I get home!

Go for the big gigs
I just read the least popular model is the Gold 128G.  Since I've also read pictures are taking up more space on this new model, let me just say, "Sold!"
