Apple iPhone 6s And 6s Plus Pre-Orders Delivery Times Hit 3-4 Weeks

Delivery times for the iPhone 6s Plus have now hit 3-4 weeks just a few days after both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus pre-orders went live on the Apple store website.

The two new smartphones were unveiled at a Special Event on Wednesday 9 September along with a powerful new Apple TV and the big-screen iPad Pro.

Apple's new Rose Gold iPhone 6s is proving to be the most popular of the colours.

It's difficult to tell whether the delivery times are down to solely demand or the amount of stock that Apple but the iPhone 6s is currently the one that you'll have to wait the longest for.

The iPhone 6s in every colour except Rose Gold shows a delivery date of the 25 September 2015 whereas the newest colour edition is showing an increased delivery time of 2-3 weeks.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus may look similar, but a lot has changed underneath.

As is now becoming tradition, Apple's stocks actually dropped slightly just after the announcement. Despite this the delivery times for pre-orders are usually a strong indication as to whether Apple's on to another winner and it looks like this year is going to be no exception.

If you're not thinking of getting the iPhone 6s via the Apple Store then don't worry. Every major network in the UK including EE, Vodafone, O2, Three and Virgin have all said they'll be offering the new smartphones when the phone goes on sale this Friday.

Thinking of upgrading to the iPhone 6s? Here's what you need to know:

Apple iPhone 6s + iPhone 6s Specs

The iPhone 6s is a lot faster sporting Apple's new A9 processor, making it 90 percent faster at graphics tasks than the previous processor. While it might seem like a standard upgrade, it actually offers some serious grunt in terms of gaming and high-performance apps.

For the first time, gamers will be able to zoom in and out by simply altering the pressure applied to the screen.

It'll also build on the features found in iOS 9 which work towards battery life, with efficiency now up to an all-time high.

The screen remains the same as the previous models so if for the iPhone 6 you're getting a 4.7-inch display with a 1334x750 resolution and 326ppi. On the iPhone 6s Plus you'll get a larger 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920x1080 and 401ppi.

Touch ID remains (as you would expect), but it will be two times faster, allowing for the phone to be locked using your fingerprint and the sensor is still the main component of Apple Pay - letting you use your fingerprint to wirelessly pay for items at hundreds of thousands of store across the UK.
