My wifi seems to be working well - since I downloaded the 2GB of updates to the new 'built-in' apps from the free Spark wifi box outside earlier. Was faster than downloading them from my home connection. :D

Bextinaa: Check your iPhones are actually connected to wifi and not just burning through your data. My friends + is doing the exact same thing. The wifi icon was on but it isn't connected.


Checked mine and it is OK.

I have actually found that the wireless signal on this phone to be a lot stronger than my 5 was.

UrbanGrafix: What cases & or screen protectors are people using? I'm looking at http://www.iconic.co.nz/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=16&products_id=571 as I really dislike cases.


Yea I am in the same boat, I hate cases. Cover up thin and beautiful device design with a crappy cheap case, even the more expensive case do not compare.

I was using a neoprene camera case for my iPhone 4 ($15). I have had the phone for a 1.5 years and there is not a scratch or mark on it, just like new still.
I can throw car keys into the same pocket, and no worries at all.
When I use the phone I am just using the phone and nothing else attached (case) to it adding bulk and weight.

Really hard to find a decent full sleeve or neoprene cover.

For now I found that my PS Vita neoprene cover is a very good temporary solution for the 6 Plus. I using cover mine from this kit:

btw. The Vita sleeve stays in my pocket, I don't take that out lol

This is torturous, my 3 6+s have been in various courier vans for 10 hours over two days. I'm still waiting...

Apparently '1st Opportunity' means whenever they feel like it. You'd think getting three packages out of your van in one go would be a quick win for a courier?

I feel exactly the same way about cases.

Check whether Sena are making leather sleeves for the 6/6+ yet. I have one for my 5S which I bought at the Apple Store when I was in San Francisco a couple of months ago, but the NZ online Apple store has been known to sell these in the past. It's an attractive high quality sleeve that will protect your device when not in use, and can be easily tossed aside completely when you want to use the device.

This will be them, however nothing on the NZ store I can see for this one.

Info for those still waiting, I ordered a 6 Plus 64GB (late on the day) at 6:40pm on 26-September.

It shipped yesterday with target delivery for 13-Oct. Might see it before the weekend if we are lucky.

Appears from the news that it could well be here before many other Telco pre-orders.

All working well on my 6+. I bought an apple leather case after seeing it on a friend's phone. Very nice and minimal bulk. There's a large selection at my local Spark store. I did also get a couple of spigen cases previously so those may go onto trademe soon.

Also got a tempered glass screen protector for cheap from eBay. Works and only cost $5.

My credit card is showing payment on the 3rd and I received my phone today. I feel like something has gone wrong with your payment! You could ring apple and see what the deal is?

I'm still waiting, although I didnt order until the 27th, saturday lunchtime.

Still showing as processing :( Realise i'm being terribly impatient, as it says 'ships in 7 - 10 business days and today is only the 7th business day ... but I was kinda hopeful it'd be here by the weekend. Not likely now.
