iPhone 6s release date: Many models of larger iPhone 6s Plus unavailable with huge queues expected at Apple Stores next week

Handset will come to shops on September 25 — and joining the big queues is likely to be the only way of getting one on the release date

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is still a week away from release — but many models are already sold out, with weeks of waiting before they will actually arrive.

The handsets were unveiled by Apple at a big event earlier this month. The phones went on pre-order shortly after, and will be released on September 25.

But almost all models of the iPhone 6s Plus will be unavailable on that date. Stock of the smaller iPhone 6s seems to be more available, with the Apple website showing an expected delivery date of September 25 “in most areas”.

But if your preferred option is out of stock on Apple’s website or your network, then there is expected to be a limited availability in Apple Stores once the phone is released. Shops will open at 8am local time on September 25, though queues are expected to begin long before then.

Phones can be ordered through Apple’s website and then picked up from the shops, rather than having them sent to a delivery address.

Apple Stores usually see packed queues outside on the iPhone release dates. Though Apple had a relatively muted start for its last major product, the Apple Watch, the company has said that wouldn't be the end of "blockbuster" launches.

Apple unveiled the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus at an event in San Francisco earlier this month. The company had a largely unchanged external design, but brings a new pressure-sensitive screen and a much upgraded camera.

This Week’s Apple Rumors, Ranked From Dumbest to Most Plausible
     

One report suggests Apple could be upping its 8-megapixel camera count to 13.
 
Each week, there are dozens of rumors, reports, and patent filings that hint at what’s coming out of Cupertino next. Some are legit, but many are totally bogus. As always, we’ve parsed the rumors, ranking them in order from “utterly ridiculous” to “duh, of course.” First up…

DON’T COUNT ON IT: Photos of Next Gen Touch ID Sensor Emerge
French site Nowhereelse.fr posted images of what could be the next iPhone’s Touch ID sensor alongside the iPhone 5s’s sensor. The only visible difference between the two versions in the images are repositioned screw holes. The new sensor will reportedly be more durable than the current touch sensor in the iPhone 5s, which has proven problematic for a number of users.

DON’T COUNT ON IT: Photos of iPhone 6 Battery Emerge
Nowhereelse.fr also posted photos of what could be the new iPhone’s battery. Photos show a 1,810 mAh battery, an upgrade from the 1,500 mAh model in the current iPhone. If the next iPhone models are going to be larger, as every single rumor and report seems to point to, then the smartphone could use a boost in battery power to maintain or improve its current level of battery life. The battery is from Desay Battery, a manufacturing company rumored to be certified to produce batteries for the next iPhone. But as far as the picture goes, it’s just a picture of a battery, and could belong to any number of mobile devices.

DON’T COUNT ON IT: iPhone to Get 13-Megapixel Camera Upgrade
While competitors have touted shooters with 13-, 20-, or even 41-megapixel specs, for the last few iterations, Apple has kept the iPhone at a respectable 8-megapixels. Instead of focusing on the number, Apple claims it’s improved the lens and camera sensor technology (and based on our experience with it compared to other smartphone cameras, it seems to be holding up just fine). But a report out China suggests Apple could be upping the pixel count on its rear-facing camera from 8 to 13. The report says Apple will be using an updated version of Sony’s Exmor sensor. This sounds dubious, given Apple’s past camera updating behaviors, which usually happens on the “s” product cycles, as well as the fact that upping the pixel count can reduce low-light performance (unless the sensor is also similarly bumped up in size, which is a possibility).

ASK AGAIN LATER: Apple Partnering With British Fuel Cell Company
Apple could be partnering with a British firm to make its mobile devices and laptops greener in the future, a report from The Daily Mail suggests. Intelligent Energy, a fuel cell firm, has entered into a clandestine partnership with “an international electronics company” to buy a handful of patents, and a source revealed the company was Apple. Apple has been reportedly investigating the use of fuel cells in its products since 2011. Fuel cells could potentially help devices be lighter, smaller, and more battery efficient than current battery technology allows. If Apple does partner with Intelligent Energy (or any other fuel cell firms) we could start seeing this technology in devices in a few years time.

ASK AGAIN LATER: iPhone 6 Production to Begin Next Week, in August for Larger Model
Mass production of the 4.7-inch model of Apple’s next iPhone is scheduled to start next week, according to a report from the Economic Daily (via 9to5Mac). The larger 5.5-inch version won’t get its turn until later in August due to a variety of production issues. We’ve also been starting to see more and more parts leaks, as well as signs that production of the next iPhone’s sapphire displays are well on their way. For products we expect Apple to debut onstage and in-store in late September to early October, the timing of this report does sound about right. And if it proves true, we could start seeing far more iPhone leaks in the coming weeks.

SIGNS POINT TO YES: Find My iPhone Could Get New Security Features
Find My iPhone is Apple’s premier security feature for its mobile products (outside of password locks and TouchID). Some new intellectual property shows the company is definitely working to improve this service. A patent filing published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office Thursday shows how Find My iPhone could give the finder of an iOS device the ability to communicate with one of the phone’s contacts. For the (rare) occasion when an honest person finds a locked iOS device, it can be difficult to reunite it with its owner. If the finder could make a call or text to one of the phone’s contacts to say “Hey, I found this iPhone at the bar, how do I get it back to its owner?” the situation could be easier. Right now, Find My iPhone is useful in locating and remotely wiping a lost device, but not so helpful in getting it back. Another patent application would give users the ability to set an alert or even lock a device if significant changes in behavior are detected. The phone would passively monitor behavior patterns, and when those don’t match the usual ones, an action would be triggered. The user would have privacy controls over what sort of data is and isn’t tracked for this feature, and where the alert notification would go to (a third party device like a computer, or a family member’s smartphone, for instance).

SIGNS POINT TO YES: CarPlay to Come to VW Vehicles in 2016
In March Apple announced its CarPlay initiative will be implemented by a number of car manufacturers, including Ford, Hyundai, Nissan, and Toyota, among others. While Volkswagen was noticeably absent from that list, 9to5Mac reports the auto maker plans to include CarPlay in some 2016 model cars. Apple and Volkswagen were partners back when Apple was integrating iPods into cars around 2006. It’s unclear why VW held out longer than other auto companies with CarPlay, but it still seemed likely it would eventually join the list.

Wednesday Apple Rumors: Apple Issues Lightning Cable Headphone Specs
It will release a software update to enable support in recent iOS devices
Here are your Apple rumors and AAPL news items for today:

Daily apple rumors  300x180 Wednesday Apple Rumors: Apple Issues Lightning Cable Headphone SpecsPlug-In: According to 9to5Mac, Apple (AAPL) has issued new specifications to headphone makers that makes it possible for them to design headphones that will connect to iPhones, iPads and iPods via Lightning cables. Currently, headphones must use Bluetooth or the 3.5mm headphone jack to connect to iOS devices. The new specifications have been issued under Apple’s Made-For-iPhone/iPad/iPod program. Headphones that connect via Lightning cables will support the reception of lossless stereo 48 kHz digital audio output and the transmission of mono 48 kHz digital audio input. Recent rumors have indicated that Apple is looking to support the playback of high-definition audio on iOS devices in the future. Lightning-connected headphones will feature remote control functions, may be designed to interact with certain apps and can draw power from the iPhone or iPad, reducing the need for internal batteries in the headphones. While Apple has quietly released the new specifications to manufacturers, current iOS devices are unable to use Lightning cables to connect to headphones. Apple is expected to issue a software update to permit Lightning-cable headphones in devices running iOS 7.1 or later at some point in the coming months.

Debut: During Monday’s WWDC keynote, Apple introduced its new programming language: Swift, which TechCrunch notes is likely to replace Objective-C as Apple’s primary programming language. Swift is designed to “unify the procedural and object-oriented portions of the language.” Swift offers programmers a number of options not found in Objective-C. Swift features include Closures, Tuples and multiple return values, Generics, Fast and concise iteration over a range or collection, Structs that support methods, extensions, protocols and Functional programming patterns. Apple’s Xcode IDE will offer an interactive “Playground” permitting developers to try out their code and make edits.

Rising Star: At this year’s WWDC, Apple engineering chief Craig spent almost an hour and twenty minutes on stage previewing the iPhone-maker’s upcoming software innovations, CNNMoney notes. Federighi “captivated Apple’s audience and fans” and was praised as “Superman” by CEO Tim Cook. Federighi showed himself able to make fun of Apple’s sacred cows, at one point telling the audience, “Check out that trash can! That is a gorgeous trash can. You wouldn’t believe how much time we spent crafting a trash can.” CNNMoney notes that Federighi alternated passionate presentation with comedic turns and light-hearted commentary to keep the two hour keynote presentation moving along and maintain audience interest. Federighi’s stage presence drew a marked contrast to that of Cook who is known for his unflappable reserve. Federighi first took the stage at a major Apple event a last year’s WWDC, leading the audience through the features of the then-upcoming iOS 7.
