While the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus aren’t supposed to start arriving to pre-order customers until this Friday, at least one lucky AT&T customer got a surprise today. A Twitter user by the name of @MoonshineDesign based in San Diego today received her iPhone 6s in the new Rose Gold color variant. According to her tweets, she ordered the device through AT&T.
The user shared a variety of images of the device as she unboxed it and set it up. The device shipped in the same packaging that we’ve seen leaked several times already. In addition to images of the device itself, Geekbench results from the device were shared, as well. In a single-core Geekbench test, the iPhone 6s scored a 2413, beating out the Retina iPad mini, iPad mini 3, and even the iPad Air 2. The multi-core score of the device was 4293. The Geekbench results also confirmed that the device features 2GB of RAM.
For once, it’s nice to find that person who gets their Apple product early and knows how to do benchmarks and take non-blurry photos. Seriously, that Geekbench score is insane. That’s a 33% improvement over an iPad Air 2 on the single-core test and very close to how the 13-inch MacBook Air scores. I can’t wait to see how the iPad Pro does with its A9X internals.
