    Ok Apple just issued an official statement and breaking news saying there will be no iPhone 7 Plus available for walk-ins tomorrow morning,
    "Apple has issued a statement advising that it has completely sold out of the Jet Black iPhone 7 and all versions of the iPhone 7 Plus, thanks to pre-orders. It adds that ‘limited quantities’ of other finishes of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will be available to walk-in customers tomorrow.

    We couldn’t be happier with the initial response to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and we are looking forward to beginning sales through our retail stores and partners around the world.

    Beginning Friday, limited quantities of iPhone 7 in silver, gold, rose gold, and black will be available for walk-in customers at Apple retail stores. During the online pre-order period, initial quantities of iPhone 7 Plus in all finishes and iPhone 7 in jet black sold out and will not be available for walk-in customers."


    I guess everyone that was planing to camp out tonight to buy a Plus Model is out of luck, these that want to buy the 4.7 inch smaller iPhone 7 might be able to get one by Walk-in as these will be available in limited quantities.

    Apple needs to just quit playing and just produce the phones. They know the demand is always off the roof and they need to just make the supply so everyone can profit.

    This happens every year and it will happen again next year too. It's makes good headlines and helps to good sales.

    I understand it from that perspective, however, it still sucks. I preordered mine but I have a Sep. 27-29 date. Bleh

    Remember all that doom and gloom talk a few months back that this year would be a down year for Apple? That nobody wanted to upgrade to the 7 because it looks the same as the previous models? Splash it with a couple black options and BAM! How do like dem Apples? ;)

    Demand outstrips supply again. Will Apple ever get it right? They have almost 10 years of practice and still the same old story! LOL!

    It could be a supply issue rather than high demand. We'll won't know until Apple releases numbers (spring?).

    Kinda makes you wonder, I'm pretty sure they know exactly what they're doing.

    Will this include if I went into a carrier store? Verizon told me they shouldn't have a problem in any Plus models, just the Jet Black one.

    AT&T told me the same thing. At this point, who knows.

    Boy oh boy, I can't wait till tomorrow when they open and there's no Black iPhone 7 +s for them. We are definitely going to hear it here first. Get your popcorn ready people

    Apple (and every other business) loves preorders. Who would go through the hassle of. Pare order if they could just walk in and pick out the one they want on Friday?

    I don't remember Apple announcing that there would be no phones available on launch day for walk ins a day or two away from launch day?

    I spoke to 2 different AT&T stores today. No one knows and I was told even if they did, they are not allowed to say, but they did say they hadn't heard that they were getting zero pluses.

    Considering it's been plastered all over the forums that there won't likely be any, I can't understand why anyone would be surprised when they verify it tomorrow?
