I have the iPhone 6 Plus, however I cannot find any retail store stock of the official Apple cases. I have been quoted around the end of October before any store stock.

I don't know much about the Apple store, but if says available to ship in 24 hours, does that mean I will get it over night directly from Apple NZ, or does that mean the order will be processed over 24 hours and then it will be on a slow boat (plane) from China?

If shipping from China, how long does available to ship in 24 hours actually take in days/weeks?

I ordered a case from the Apple store and had it a day later, so it was a full 24 hours plus some change.

Cool thanks, I order from the website, say 10/10/14 expected to deliver once processed. If I had of ordered earlier I might of got it tomorrow.

Was trying to get the case with gift vouchers from Noel Lemmings I have to save a few dollars, otherwise would have ordered earlier

I called around local Vodafone but they have nothing but a single flip case. Spark nearest store is a 40km round trip.

JB Hifi New Lynn. The sales person kindly got the three Plus cases from the back room. I bought one, $40, perfectly fine until my Apple case arrives. Will try to find a link.

Cheers,
Joseph

Just a heads up on the iPhone Plus Leather case. Don't believe what the website quote you. They are coming from China I suspect. I just got the shipping date and a tracking number today. Expected to arrive on the 14/10/14, so basically changed from a couple of days to early next week.

The website states available to ship in 24 hours.

I got one of these for my 6+ as I wanted something to cover the screen when in my pocket, couldn't be happier with it.

It doesn't add too much bulk either.

Well yes, yea it did ship, but in saying that the expected delivery moved from 2 days away after ordering, the next day adding on an additional 4 days, 6 days total.

Yea guess in a way it has shipped, though a lot longer than quoted to get here, so don't trust the website times, not entirely correct.

Not being sent direct from China either by the looks of things. Is show me that has been pickup from Sydney Australia and sent to Auckland, where it will sit there over the weekend, till next week.

I hate waiting lol.

After the meagre options available from Apple directly--and after having become wholly reliant on my iPhone 5 case that holds 4 bank/credit/ID cards, meaning I don't need to carry a wallet--I opted for this case from Amazon. It's a leather, folio-style, with several card slots and a slot for some notes (assumes US-sized notes, however).

It's a great case and still less expensive than the Apple one if you use YouShop from the States.
