Has anybody seen any available stock to pick up from any UK Apple stores?

Im in the north east and I’ve been checking multiple times a day from Scotland to Manchester and there has been hardly any available units to order and pick up in stores, it’s crazy!

I remember previous years it’s been so much better in terms of availability and by now if you kept checking you’d generally get what you want.

Lots of shortages and slow downs this cycle. I imagine that stock will not stabilize and be readily available until 2022. If you see something you like, get it when you can or be prepared to wait.

Check John Lewis they get stock in at random times. I was on website at 11pm last week and noticed 256gb in graphite suddenly came in stock so ordered and collected 2 days later.

Ditto for Carphone Warehouse. I ordered a 128gb 13 Pro yesterday and had it delivered today.

Never used this, do you just check regular?

I use the app. From there you can set a Siri reminder but also it shows configs similar and which stores.
This morning all UK stores received/added stock between 8am and 11am - it’s best to check throughout the day as they get new deliveries and cancelled reservations pop up during the course of the day - if you can just keep refreshing then you’ll find what you want.

it says delivery by 2 November, was it same for you?
Initially ordered the Graphite 256GB last week and delivery was meant to be yesterday but had an email saying it was delayed so cancelled. Happened to see the Sierra blue was in stock for next day delivery so went with it and arrived as planned.

Keep checking - the stock seems to change quickly. The blue at one stage was predicting 26th Oct but then suddenly came in stock.

I just walked into the Apple store here today and got an iPhone 13 Pro when I asked. They did say it was the last available colour though (silver and white).

This.

I was after a 13 mini in midnight/128GB. No availability at Apple stores aside from one store hours away. None at Argos, Very, Amazon or Currys. Checked the John Lewis website and they had them in stock for next day delivery. Same with Carphone Warehouse.

It's worth checking John Lewis and Carphone Warehouse regularly, they seem to get stock fair frequently (although you still have to be quick).

I was checking the Apple Store app for a week before a graphite Pro 256gb popped up in all the London stores.

Picked it up yesterday at Regents Street, they said that they don't know what's coming day by day but they do have daily deliveries.

Literally didn't see any pro or pro max in any colour and capacity in my local store at Lakeside on the app.
