Hardly!  My 4 is actually doing better at the end of its fourth year than my wife's 4S is at the end of its third...THAT's not "future-proof"!
You're not the only one here, it's not your shop, and my, what a grown-up response!
Exactly, KoSH:  THAT's the thing that's so unlike them:  they get ONE STORY, and they stick with it thru thick and thin.  I remember when the 4 came out, we were all carefully told what the deal was, in-store:  some every day, no idea how many or what (all true, btw), no reservations, if there are people in line we sell to them first.  No improve, no prose, here's the deal.  This year, NOTHING.  No, I no longer work there, but there simply is. no. story available as to how...
I'm quite sure there are in fact many stupid people with iPhones, and I'm equally sure that's a major factor....
T,IFIFY
So far, neither seaturtle nor DeviceChecker have turned up a SINGLE verifiable 6 or Plus of any color or configuration in one of the largest metro areas in the US (mine).  In fact, nothing confirmable within a 6-hour round trip...and still no word whether Apple plans to actually deliver iPhone stock to their stores - or their vendors' - before Thanksgiving.   That, plus the complete lack of info here and elsewhere about what Apple's actually doing to get the phones out...
I DO like it!   Sadly, it shows no 64 or 128GB Plus' at ALL in my state (and YES, we have SIX Apple Stores)   Apparently lots of 16s, but I won't "replace" a 32 with a 16....   Looking like the answer to the broader question is, no-one knows what Apple's doing, beyond bypassing their own retail network....
Too bad I don't live near you - none in my state at all (ATT says frankly, "November, maybe before Thanksgiving".  So I'll keep my eye on the turtle, and see how things turn out.
Thanks for that link, but it's no different from checking store.apple for local pickup availability.  No actual information about what's happening re:  restocking, no way to plan or prepare or strategize...oh well, I hope others will arrive with more info.   I DO appreciate your input.
I'm VERY curious about actual availability of the new iPhones:  in the past, it was the practice for phone shipments to trickle in to the Apple Stores on a daily basis following release, and some number of folks waiting outside, could be sure they'd get phones.  (I know this was in fact the case w/ 4 and 5) This is no longer the case, it seems. On 9/29, an Apple Store specialist recounted the above procedure to me by phone; today, 10/2, that same store told me they have...
