Where are you? I am in SoCal. I saw some over the weekend but they were too far of a drive.
Sorry, Houston. But they also say that many don't get updated into the system with a new product launch, so I would check the store in the morning as well, despite what online says. They get stock that never appears online.

Hi !
We are coming to Florida Sunday, and with my wife we hoped to buy an iphone 11 and iphone 11 pro 256go. On istocknow it seems there is no stock anywhere, same on apple website. Do you think there is a chance to find some iphone directly to an apple store near orlando ?
Thanks !

Istocknow is not nearly as up to date as it was last year. The weekend I got my 11P istocknow said nothing was in stock but my store did have stock. I walked in, asked for what I wanted and voila, here I am.

Went in this weekend to get an 11 for my daughter. They made us sign up for an appointment as there was such a long line so we had to waste time in the mall for two hours. But they had them in stock.

You can also reserve a phone and appointment online before you ever go in.

Interesting. . .the stores in Texas have 0 supply of the iPhone 11 Pro Max (not one store). I am traveling to DC next so put that into the checkout on apple.com. . .every apple store seems to have all variants color/sizing/etc. in stock. Odd, but seems highly dependent on location.

Yes it depends on location and how much Apple is distributing the amount to each Apple Store. Currently, Apple Store at my location has had 0 supply of the 11 Pro and 11 Pro max (all variant) for 2 weeks now and not even a single shipment has come in.

Unless you pre-order, this seems to be the yearly dance for about a month after release day.

Check repeatedly online. Nope. Dang.

Go into store, tap vein.
"You got the stuff? Nope? Dang."

If you call the store will they hold one for your or do you just have to jump in the car and hope one is still available when you get there?
I'm not sure, I think you would have to order online to have them hold one for pickup. Again, call them and see what they say.

I purchased my phone on October 1 from sprint my carrier. I’ve checked twice now, having a Sprint rep calling different stores in my area to see if they had one in stock. If they did have one in stock they can have me pick it up in store rather than overnight shipping. None of the stores are getting any stock until mid October earliest is what I was told at least for sprint stores by a rep when I called myself.

It’s nine days later and my order is still in pending. I think I’m going to burst lol.

La Jolla has them in stock. Apple store says out of stock but I’ve gone in 3 times and bought 3 iPhone 11 Pros. In and out in under 10 mins each time (do your own set up).

i forgot to mention mine is a Max I’m waiting on so either on high demand or they didn’t make enough or both.
Yeah, I have an order in for two max 256 GB that I placed last monday, and I'm still looking at 2 more weeks. Local stores (within like 250 miles) all out of stock on Max's across the board. I did see one 512 GB show up yesterday, but it was gone immediately.

Weird. Apple's site has shown nothing for Easton or Polaris. Looking for an 11 Pro Max in silver/256. I even tried black/512 combinations.
I think I got online around 9am to reserve one. My pickup was when they opened at noon. They still had everything at that point. They said they typically get two shipments a day (not always iPhones).
As of now (1pm), looks like the closest silver 256 max is Akron.

Anyone sink low enough to buy from Craigslist? I found one with AppleCare+. Basically said they didn’t like the size.

do you think I should Gamble? This is for my wife.
Dont do it. If they didnt like the size they could have just returned it within 14 days. Sounds fishy to me.
