    Yesterday there were no new macs. Today, still not new macs? What's the matter, Apple? You heard us asking yesterday and you didn't provide today. Oh well. Maybe they'll hear us today and design, build, test, and market new macs by tomorrow. If they're not on the shelves tomorrow we can always hope for Sunday.

    But I think Apple will have a special event later this month to announce at least some new macs.

    I got an iPhone 7 Plus on the iPhone Upgrade program on launch day. I wonder if I could go there and exchange my Matte black model for a Jet black.

    Well, usually Apple gives a two week announcement window for their events. At this point we are at the middle of October and no news of anything. It doesn't look good. That's very lame. I need a MBP, 5K display and a Mac Mini. That's a good $$$ for Apple. Come get it., Announce something damn it! :mad:

    Their shortages are not uniform. It's much easier to get the iPhone 7 than the iPhone 7 Plus. So it's likely they're selling iPhone 7's to customers who otherwise might buy the more expensive 7 Plus.

    In my own case, I have been ready to get the iPhone 7 Plus (I don't care about the color), but I was waiting for them to be widely available so I could upgrade without having to compromise. But yesterday I lost my job, and now I am unexpectedly retired. Do I really want to buy a new phone now? If it had been widely available two weeks ago, I'd have picked one up. Now I may wait until next year.

    I don't see shortages, artificial or not, working on me. Play hard to get, and I lose interest.

    Sorry to hear that. Much more important things in life than phones. Hopefully this presents you a new opportunity for an even greater career :)

    I guess with Apple if you want something in that new color etc. it pays to wait. Unfortunately, it sucks for those who paid and are still waiting for theirs and also tricky for folks on the IUP. I guess if I get that lovin' feeling again I will definitely wait it out the 2-3 months until stock appears.

    I don't think we'll be seeing next year's iPhone 8 in jet black.

    The Jet Black sounds like purely a Jony Ive vanity project.

    If it won't hold up to rigors of regular use, then design has failed.. not functionly, but design.

    Maybe the announcement has been delayed until next month? If Apple doesn't release new MacBooks and iPhone 7 sales fall short, it will definitely be a holiday season to forget.

    I don't think you know what "common sense" means.
    --- Post Merged, Oct 14, 2016 ---
    If *I* were you (and really wanted the Jet Black version right now), I'd just buy one from a local store and then cancel my pre-order. This assumes, however, that you have an Apple store relatively close to you. ;)

    Does this mean that the iPhone 7 is selling badly?

    Let's hope not, but one wonders.

    Already mostly out of stock here in New England. There's still some in one NH store and a couple MA stores but that's it.

    Im in CO and was able to reserve and swap out my Silver 128GB Verizon for a Matte Black 256GB past the 14 day return policy since I asked nicely :) . However I purchased mine outright tho.. Im sure theyll do it if you dont roll in bossing the apple store peeps around. I saw someone do that and they said no to the same request I had when I asked nicely. The power of a nice person goes a long way

    Exactly! Thats what a majority of macrumors forum people did. I did as well. Reserve one locally.. Cancel preorder atleast 1 hour before your reservation for pickup. Once you arrive it should of cleared the carrier preorder system and you can use NEXT.. Verizon payment option... IUP and so on

    Why does no one want VZ phones? (or maybe better phrased - why so much VZ availability)?

    You thought it went straight into one? Ohh...you mean, "even THOUGH it went straight in to a case."! Gotcha.

    Gave up on a black 7 Plus (T-Mobile) and managed to find the only silver 7 Plus 256GB T-Mobile in stock at an Apple store in NYC on Tuesday via iStockNow. Reserved it online and picked it up a couple of hours later.

    I'm hoping that it is indicative of Apple sending the ATT model of allotted phones to those customers whom have ordered from them instead. My shippment date did get moved up 2 days ago to early November.

    And the Sprint models are in great supply! Lolz

    According to istocknow the UK has no Jet Black Plus, 128gb or 256gb, the whole of main land Europe has two Apple stores (one with 128gb the other with 256gb) with them but Hawaii seems to have plenty of stock ?! o_O

    Just want my 256gb JB Plus :(

    I picked one up today. I checked out the 7 jb on display and the only visible scratches were clearly from an attempt to scratch it. Big, giant scratches all over the Apple logo. Other than that it looked fine.

    You're past the 14 day window. They won't let you. I've checked
