It’s on or around September 14, apparently, which should coincide with the retailer’s onset of AppleCare and AppleCare+ services.
In case Best Buy’s first dibs on the Apple Watch wasn’t enough to spell out the electronics vendor’s close relationship with the Cupertino-based iDevice manufacturer, very credible sources now suggest an imminent boost of said friendship.
According to both 9To5Mac and Apple Insider, BB will help expand AppleCare and AppleCare+ programs for Macs, iPads, the Apple Watch and iPhones by mid-September. Clearly, the timing doesn’t incidentally follow the oft-speculated iPhone 6s/6s Plus announcement date, and we strongly believe it’s a firm indicator of the two’s commercial ETA.
In other words, you better circle September 9 in your calendars as the day the sequels to the world’s first “iPhablets” will probably break cover, and the 13th or 14th as their actual delivery deadline. Or maybe that’s when pre-orders are slated to begin, with shipping underway later the same week.
What’s pretty much set in stone is, by the end of the month, you should easily get your hands on a spanking new, A9-powered, 2 GB RAM-packing iPhone. With standard one-year warranty from Best Buy, or the possibility to extend that to a second year and score coverage for up to two incidents of accidental damage.
Everything extra will cost you, obviously, but the good news is you’ll be able to service the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus at Best Buy or Apple, depending on which method you find more convenient.
Remember, the aluminum skeletons shall gain further durability, but there’s no such thing as an unbreakable gadget. Hopefully, they’ll at least make them unbendable this time around.
