    Title says it all really!

    Seen a few US stores have the new colours in stock in limited quantities.

    Anyone found any in the UK?

    I think we might have got the short end of the stick, not available at my two local Apple shops (Basingstoke & Reading). I guess it's online only until demand drops, I really wanted to see the red and orange.

    Went to find out for myself: Regent Street said they had delivery of every single new colour but they sold out basically straightaway.

    True or not, they don't have any! :p

    Lakeside, grays has them. Well they have the yucky colours laid out on a desk. You have to ASK for them. Product red has been trickling in too.

    Side note** have you guys notices they have taken away all the pos iPad price displays?!?

    Apple Store Brent Cross and Selfridges both had the red in stock but were out of the others when I asked. The colours that ship on watches are there to look st in the watch tables though. I got the impression that they've had all of them in but they're selling out as they arrive.

    I was looking for that too. I went to the selfridges store on my wedding day (I only went there and it was on my way to my hair appointment - I swear) but they said they had sold out. I just resorted to buy it online and it comes in 3-4 weeks.

    Yup, part of the recent simplification of the stores - instead macs have the price on the desktop and iOS devices have an app the shows the price and allows comparisons. There is even a notification that pops up from that app once you've been playing with them for a few seconds.

    Southgate Bath store still only got the original few as of last weekend. Too many people in there taking up staff time for me to ask when they plan on stocking the rest. My money is waiting for product(red).

    Unless you *need* to touch the band, I'd order online. I picked up my phone Friday in Northern Virginia (USA) and asked if they had any Midnight Blue sport bands for 42 in the back, and they looked, and nothing.

    I went home, ordered it with the app, and it shipped, from China, the same day, for Thursday delivery. It's *already* on the FedEx truck for delivery today. That's pretty impressive. So, perhaps the same or a day longer for the UK?

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Despite quoting 5-6 weeks for a 38mm midnight blue sport band online, mine arrived today. Ordered September 11th. Love the colour. Matches my iPhone and iPad cases.

    There is stock for the new band colours in Westfield London/White City including the product red :) went there a few days ago and got myself an Antique White band and another lady got herself the Product Red. If you want to know whether an Apple Store has a new band colour in stock go to their chat and they will check for you so no wasted journey either :)
