Re: IPhone 6S in Switzerland

Hi there,

I know the official release date for the new Iphone 6S is the 25th of September but that's for tier 1 countries. Switzerland will only get it in the tier 2 countries release.

And that is my question

Re: IPhone 6S in Switzerland

Based on this information it could be around 11th October: http://bgr.com/2015/09/17/iphone-6s-...international/

The problem is the networks (the ones you would expect to have a rough idea) refuse to say or give an estimate.

Re: IPhone 6S in Switzerland

IMO it's best to leave it until January or February next year to buy one.

2 reasons.

The first is that the phones available then will be the second or more probably the third tranche of manufacturing, which will mean any quality control and/or production problems should have been ironed out by then - meaning less chance you'll get a lemon.

The second reason is that you should be able to walk into a store and pick one up straight away, and not have to go through this several weeks of waiting malarky which is what a lot of the early adopters will have to go through.

Good advice, however I have never had a problem swapping a lemon at an Apple Store (or any other exotic fruits)

While I am inclined to say the quality issue is an eye open however with the 2 year warranty that comes with the device you can just keep having it swapped and continue to have a new phone

Logic error! Waiting malarky = postponing to buy.

Re: IPhone 6S in Switzerland

The fact is the price won't come down, any lemons are instantly exchanged (thanks to Apple's great CS) and the dearer 64 and 128GB models are usually pretty abundant. I predict the 16GB rose gold will be rarer than hen's teeth, but everything else should be achievable within a month or so after launch.

If I decide to get one, then I would want to get it as close to launch as possible so I can be smugger for longer before the 7 comes out.

I don't think anyone would go for the 16GB models. Shoot a few 4K movies and your memory is full.

and pre-sales on all major networks start October 2nd. Apple will also have a reservation system for in-store pick-ups in place but hasn't mentioned when that'll become available.

I hate having to do work ... anyway, thats CHF 1272.93 in case anyone else was wondering. Which is pretty much what they've been advertised for on Ricardo this last week.

yeah, I've seen some go for that price. Not sure who'd pay so much, considering that you can probably get them everywhere here in a week for 1/3 less.
