The iPhone 6S is on its way. This was the least stressful launch of a new iPhone in history.
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus went on sale Friday. The Apple Stores had ample inventory of new iPhones across the board. The lines have not been crazy long as many customers have pre-ordered online. I did and my iPhone 6S arrived on launch day. Did I use it yet? No, because i forget to order a Nano SIM card. It is a long story.

In general though the feeling is that this was a very smooth launch for the iPhone 6S.
The iPhone 6S reviews from the tech pundits have been already very positive. The first impressions of the iPhone 6S by Apple fans across the world are mostly positive. There are no obvious issues with the new iPhone 6S, just praise. There is no Bendgate and no Antennagate. The only head scratcher is why Apple dared to reduce the capacity of the battery, despite criticism of short battery life of iPhones.
It is the highest performing iPhone yet and the rumors about the doubling of the RAM turned out true. The iPhone 6S has 2GB LPDDR4 RAM from Samsung. Along with the new A9 CPU, the iPhone 6S is a powerful machine challenging the MacBook.
Teardown legend, iFixit has taken apart the iPhone 6S to show the world in the inner beauty of the iPhone 6S. It is also them, who confirmed that the iPhone 6S has indeed 2GB of RAM. iPhone 6 owners have to rely on only 1GB of RAM.

The iPhone 6S will be breaking the iPhone 6 sales record. The question is only which number Apple is going to announce. Right after the pre-order launch Apple was very forthcoming with a statement saying that the iPhone 6S pre-orders will reach 10 million on the first weekend. Since then Apple has not mentioned any specific sales numbers. The next likely date for an announcement is Monday.
