I got a popup on my iPad mini saying "Great News!", yada, yada....Then I just logged into the Apple Store app and did a track shipment. It is actually a day ahead of schedule and is supposed to arrive tomorrow, 9/25. I'm so ready for it, even though I heard this morning that the 6+ is bending in people's pockets! Yikes!
The rumors are true...however, those who have bent their phones must be doing something highly out of the ordinary, as it is not easy to bend the phone....best bet is to put a heavy case on the phone to spread the bending load a bit. And since the screen will crack on a drop to a hard surface, you're going to need a case anyway. I always case my phones...I need to keep this one for 3 years.
