Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

Likely they are referring to their stock for walk in phones. Apple likely underestimated the demand for the iphone 6+ and produced a lower stock of it, on top of the fact that the manufacture process for iphone 6+ screens only result in 60% of screen's making the cut vs iphone 6's 80%.

However, Rogers like many other carriers have contracts with apple where apple is obligated to ship a certain number of each unit upon release which means that Rogers, Fido, Sasktel already had units earmarked before Apple started selling them to consumers.

However, Rogers gives priority to online reservations, so it's likely that you will not be able to walk-in and buy an iPhone 6+, only reservations will be fulfilled.

Hello Duraiden

Agreed with you on all that. Rogers does or will have them & ship them out tomorrow or Friday or Saturday / Monday delivery.

 

Even if Apple made a small amount, the carriers KNEW about this months before the launch or pre orders. That is how the carriers work with Apple or any other company. They order a certian amount & then most of the will go to the pre orders / reserations & only a small amount will go to the stores.

Hello Buckwheeat

Hmm honestly the site has been having issues all day so it could just be a normal thing.

Guys do remember if Rogers did not have any 6+ in stock or any carrier for that matter, they would have NOT put them for pre order / reservation.
