It’s going to be nearly impossible to get your hands on an iPhone 6 Plus this weekend. Carrier sources are saying that there is basically “no chance” of finding the 6 Plus during tomorrow’s big launch.
“We are told that stores have been receiving shipments all throughout the day, and out of all the new iPhone 6 models received, typically only about 2-3% are iPhone 6 Plus units, and in only one color,” reports BGR. “Sources also said there are no 16GB iPhone 6 Plus devices to be found.”
Regular iPhone 6 inventory seems to be in good shape, however. So for those wanting the 4.7-inch iPhone, all storage capacities and colors should be available “to some degree.”
It should come as no surprise that the 6 Plus will be in scarce supply. Apple’s initial preorder shipments of the 6 Plus sold out within in a few hours of availability, and many 6 Plus preorders aren’t shipping until mid to late October.
Although lines are already forming around the world, your best bet for getting the iPhone model you want tomorrow is still your local Apple Store. If that doesn’t work out, check availability at places people don’t normally think to look, like Walmart, Costco, Staples, and Target.
