    Hey, Just wanted to find out how everyone was getting on with reserving an iPhone (especially the iPhone 7+) using the online reservation tool.

    I tried my luck today, started off with a link that still says come back at 06:00
    This Link does not seem to work at all!
    https://reserve.cdn-apple.com/GB/en_GB/reserve/iPhone/availability?channel=1

    Finally was told by a user to use this one - https://reserve-gb.apple.com/GB/en_GB/reserve/iPhone?execution=e1s1
    - Way to use it is to go to buy iPhone, select small writing about iPhone Upgrade Program and select reserve from there.

    Hopefully something tomorrow for me.

    I am after the Jet Black 7+, not sure it'll happen anytime soon for me though :(


    18/7 UPDATES:

    iPhone 7 All colours available in all storage options in most london stores
    iPhone 7 Plus only Gold, Silver & Rose Gold Available, not a single Jet Black or Black (always shown as not available :()

    #40
    UPDATE 19/9
    No Black/Jet Black Plus in any of the London Stores.:(
    A few stores do have other plus variants. (London Stores)
    Also The Reserve and Pick Up Link ALWAYS says come back at 6:00 am!!!
    https://reserve.cdn-apple.com/GB/en_GB/reserve/iPhone/availability?channel=1

    Anyone figured out why that is? why do we have to keep going through the IUP route to reserve an iPhone???


    Update 20/9
    **** sake. stock seems to be decreasing! less available today than yesterday, in terms of pluses in London
    Did not see a black model in London again.....

    There are still several iPhone 7's available for reserve and collect as of 12pm at quite a few stores across the country. No 7+'s at all. No JB or Black either. But having just looked, there are quite a few:

    Silver 7 128GB, 256GB
    Gold 7 128GB
    Rose Gold 7 128GB, 256GB

    Rose Gold seems to be the most plentiful.

    I'm trying to stay positive but getting angrier everyday, at 6AM. :rolleyes: What is WRONG with Apple? How can the most valuable technology company in the world screw up a product launch better than nobody else? Every year we excuse them for their crap but it's always the same, they always get it wrong! Where is all this stock?!

    Yes, you can change your payment method when you get to the shop. Right now, this is the only link accurately showing store stock.

    I'd usually excuse Apple but having no 7+ models at all in the entire country is a complete joke. Not happy at all

    Front page of MR shows the Plus slowly starting to show up in stores. I'll be checking stock furiously over the next few days.

    MacRumors.

    It'll take a few days for the plus to show up, especially in lower sales volume areas. If you're in London stock is bound to go there first.

    I'm in Hampshire. The Southampton west quay store is the only one in the main south (excluding london of course) according to the apple guy in store.

    I'm trying visual ping on the availability.json. Do you reckon that will work?

    Thanks. Forgive me, but which bit do I edit to put in my store number and name?
    Update: got it running on cmd. But which models is it scanning? I want it to scan for the 128gb matte black 7 plus...

    Not sure I can help with the model number and store, just paste the url's for .json requests in the browser and find your store id, then google the stock number you are after, couple of extra if statement later you should be there! :)

    Is it true, that you can reserve the phone with IUP and then buy it full price at the store ?

    is it confirmed?
