All the Apple stores in my area ( SF Bay Area) are out of stock. I guess the word is out. I was able to walk in and buy a set on launch day and they have been in stock in all the stores around me everyday until today. Now they have to be ordered with delivery in late November.

Decided last Thursday that I wanted to pick some up from the Apple Store when I was going to be in town on Friday, but was worried they'd be out of stock by then, so I ordered on Thursday for in-store pickup. Friday afternoon they still apparently had plenty, so I felt a little silly, but now they're out, with a late-November pick-up date.

Wow, guess I barely missed the cut. I’ve got a 3-4 week delivery. Hope it’s quicker. I’ve got some travel coming up.

Bluewater has loads.
It's probably a bit far for you to travel though.

Don’t fall for AirPods ? Bestbuy has been pretty accurate. I also own a pair but just telling you they will have it sooner
I was referring to Bestbuy’s shipping tactics. I actually ordered APPs from Bestbuy with expected ship of today. Went to check my order status last night and it showed we’ll ship 6 Nov with the progress bar about half way. Checked again this AM and now my order status changed to getting ready with no progress bar. I seriously doubt it ships before Apple stores increase their stock.

Ok paranoid much? I pretty much buy from bestbuy which I am elite so the 30 day return period vs apples is worth it. Never had any issues with my watch or anything in general. At the end of the day it’s a first world problem.... seems to have stock if they are doing next day delivery

Well, I just ordered a set and chose ship to store. Supposedly, they will come Tuesday. I will update with further details when available.

Well, Apple now has them as in store pickup for tomorrow at all my local stores despite a ship date of 3-4 weeks. So I guess I’ll just do that. But I’m probably the only idiot that ordered straight from Apple at this point. Seems everybody else has little issue with stock.

My local store shows December 3rd pick up still.

I ordered from Best Buy. Supposed to come on Tuesday....the day before my birthday. We'll see...

Apple stores near me got restocked today, as did Target Online. Ended up getting them from Target using the 10 percent off coupon for military vets. Combined with my red card discount, they were much closer to 200 dollars than 250.

Same here in my area. There were none available this morning then, several stores had them this afternoon. I ran to get me a set.
