    Are there optimal times to check for in store inventory? First thing in the morning? Late PM when deliveries are made and scanned in, etc?

    You can check anytime. I've been seeing phones coming in and out all day long.

    I was told between 5:30 and 6am. Tomorrow morning will be a good morning as what they got from UPS today will be sold tomorrow.

    when you select the phone>carrier>then when in capacity selections, there should be a hyperlink to 'check availability' under each of the sizes. Then you input your location and it'll show you the availability.

    I checked at around 10am Eastern for a friend and it showed availability at a store outside Boston and he was able to scoop it up. Check first thing in the morning then throughout the day.

    Well, I went ahead and ordered (3-4 weeks wait) but can always cancel if I can get my hands on one earlier

    I recently bought an Apple Watch and I was able to order it the night before around 10:30 pm for in-store pick up through the Apple store app a had a pick up date of “tomorrow”. I’m sure it’s different for the iPhone but I purchased my 256gb iPhonex on 11/4 and I checked the app at 6:30 am and showed a availability for the same day. I would check around 6:30am and every 5-10 mins after that it you don’t see an update. Istocknow has been hit or miss in my experience but it’s a good backup.
