While the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launched last week, the usual trend of demand outstripping supply has resulted in limited availability of the smartphones around the world. Fortunately, prospective buyers can easily check stock at their local Apple Stores using the website iStockNow.

iStockNow uses Google Maps to visualize the real-time status of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus availability at Apple Stores in the U.S., Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K., likely based on Apple's reservation system backend.


The website allows users to filter their search by iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, storage capacity, color, location, and U.S. carrier. There is also a "no CDMA" filter that narrows the search to iPhone models built for GSM networks, but note that CDMA models support both CDMA and GSM networks.

Apple Store locations with availability based on the search criteria display a green marker, while stores that are out of stock display a red marker. Clicking on an individual marker opens a window with an expanded model-by-model breakdown of availability, and the time that stock was last updated at that location.


iPhone 7 Plus availability appears to be slowly improving in parts of the U.S., particularly in the New York and Los Angeles areas. In Manhattan, for example, select iPhone 7 Plus models are currently available at Apple's Fifth Avenue, Grand Central, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, and World Trade Center locations.

Shoppers can still use Apple's front-end reservation system, but iStockNow provides a more convenient way to view in-store stock at a glance.

dont think a month is going to make a difference, to be honest. QC issues are always a thing, no matter how far or early you are into a life cycle.

If batteries were repeatedly exploding like Note7, sure, but waiting seems futile
I agree. Another reason why I like waiting a month is because of the availability of the product I want too.

After testing about 10 different locations on the map, it seems if you want a solver iPhone 7 running on the T-mobile network, that's about the only option.

I'd honestly wait another month before buying iPhone 7, just incase there are more issues.
And miss that $650+ trade in deal? No thanks. Who knows when it will end, but I'll take $650 in my pocket over waiting until the bugs are worked out. (which is never...)

What a joke of a site. Shows my store has many models they do not. Shows just updated. This website is a waste.

On Saturday, found ONE iPhone7 at my T-Mobile store. Asked what color (thinking Rose Gold, for sure) ... Black. Umm, yes, I'll take it! Love the finish. Honestly, prob the best looking color ever on the iPhone.

Hopefully Tim Cook sees this map of all red (out of stock). Maybe he'll feel just a bit guilty taking his $500M bonus.

I'm on vacation in Hawaii and stopped by the Apple Store (just happened to be at the mall for something else) and checked out the black Plus that (someday) Bestbuy will be telling me is ready to pick up.

I agree, black looks nice. Too bad I have to cover it with a case!

And I thought that it was going to be a flop because it has the same shape as the one before and doesn't have an headphone jack...

Where are the prophets of the apocalypse now?
