Apple Canada sells out of iPhone 6 Plus, launch day retail supply limited, pre-order shipments at 3-4 weeks

Apple Canada has sold out of the larger version of its newest iPhone, the iPhone 6 Plus, hours after it went on sale for pre-order last night.

The company notes that orders for the unlocked version of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus ship in 3-4 weeks, while in-store reservations have largely been depleted throughout the country.

While the iPhone 6, in its three storage sizes and colours, were plentiful, and are still available in small numbers for shipping in the first week of availability, the iPhone 6 Plus was extremely supply constrained, with Apple fulfilling pre-orders slowly over the course of September and October.

Carriers are reporting that the iPhone 6 Plus is still available in small numbers to reserve, though numbers will be extremely limited at smaller dealers. If you’re looking for a carrier-locked iPhone 6 Plus on launch day, representatives from the Big Three carriers recommend visiting a corporate store for the best chance of picking one up.

According to Re/code, Apple said that the “Response to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has been incredible with a record number of preorders overnight.”

We will update this post when we hear back from the carriers about continued pre-order availability.

Update: Rogers told us, “We’re experiencing very high demand for both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. There may be some delays getting devices to customers so we encourage everyone to reserve their device through the Rogers or Fido Reservation Systems. A significant portion of our inventory will be delivered to customers who reserved their spot in line.
