profrink: I could have got it faster from the US store and re-shipping to NZ


Not to mention cheaper, as I could write mine off as a business expense and not pay duty. It would only be $1,067.67NZD from there, and probably $30-40 bucks shipping using NZPost YouShop.

I was wondering though whether AppleCare applies if you move internationally as I bought AppleCare+ for mine.

Too late now either way :)

This, I think: https://airpoints-mall.co.nz/electricals/apple-store-nz-

I wish I knew about it before! Is there any way to get them credited retrospectively?

Ordered mine too just after 1100, 64Gb grey 6 plus. 5 to 7 days, but silicone case not til October. Exciting but patience required.

Cheers,
Joseph.

On a positive, this should mean the Telco's should have them by them as well!

Keep in mind you miss out on the consumer guarantees act buying internationally (aka 'free extended warranty'). Does not apply if buying for a business however.

Ordered 6 plus 128GB, considering the price already for the 64GB model is high enough, wasn't much extra to double up to 128GB

At time of ordering my 6+ said ships 5-7 business days.

I have just re-checked the site just now, the 6+ has change to 7-10 business days.

Ordered mine today as soon as it hit 11:00am because I was paranoid that if I wasn't the first I would have to wait longer :)
iPhone 6 64gb space grey.

I ordered 2 cases, and a package of 6 screen protectors from the US (ebay) about a week ago - cost about $20 all-up including delivery. So hopefully it'll all arrive roughly the same time! :)

yeah mine is still 5-7 day when I check my actual order, I ordered at very near 11am.

I was just pointing out that 4 hours after 11am, that being 3pm the site change to 7-10 business days.

Has me wondering it that was maybe placement for first batch was between 11am - 3pm, and orders after 3pm have gone into the second allocation lot?

Can't be sure, if there is any allocation, is not then might just have to wait just as long as 7-10 business days, Apple may have readjusted their times shipping, but never updated the first peoples to order very early in the day, after the order placement.
