First iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Pre-Order Customers in New Zealand Begin Receiving Shipments

It's just after 8:30 a.m. in New Zealand, which means the first customers who pre-ordered an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus are now beginning to receive their shipments. Soon, customers in Australia will begin getting their iPhones, and the first Apple retail stores in the country will open for in-store sales. New Zealanders have started sharing photos of their new devices on social networks like Instagram and Twitter.

As September 25 hits around the world, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the UK, and the United States. Retail stores in those countries will be opening at 8:00 a.m. local time, letting customers pick up reserved devices and purchase a new phone via walk-in.


Walk-in purchases will not be available in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Oregon, Delaware, New Hampshire, and Alaska, to discourage purchases by scalpers. In these locations, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be available only by reservation. Reservations are not currently available, but will reopen at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 26.

Customers who ordered an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus for home delivery will also begin receiving their devices around 8:00 a.m. local time through couriers like UPS and FedEx. U.S. customers in New York and Pennsylvania should be aware of shipping delays that will prevent iPhone pre-orders from arriving on launch day in certain zip codes.

Why are "men" ordering pink phones??

How does having a penis affect the preference of how their device absorbs certain colors of the spectrum? Is there some scientific explanation I am missing?

Where does it state men can't like pink? If it had a black front I'd order one in a heartbeat. But it doesn't so Space Grey it is.

I don't know. Maybe to annoy insecure homophobes in online forums?
