    Forgot order a case with my X, will there be plenty stock in Apple stores on Friday (UK) pick up in store is not available until 9th Nov, does this mean they won’t have any in the store on Friday?

    I can only speak for the US (NYC), but I know our Apple stores won’t have any leather until after the 9th. I asked yesterday. Only silicon available at any time.

    The Apple Store app says ships Nov 3rd thru the 7th when I ordered mine on Sunday. Mine arrived today, so you may want to try the app.

    I refused delivery on my temp case, the silicone Apple case, just today. So they must have stock, but stores could vary.

    Was curious about this myself. Online it says no pickup for the silicone cases in store until the 10th Nov. Are you saying they will have some in stock at the store regardless?

    Unless the Apple stores in NYC are special, yeah at minimum they should have silicone in stock. Leather not so much.

    Which is why I said he may want to check the app. Don't be an obtuse ass.

    I think it may depend on the individual store. I spoke with an associate today at the one near my house and was told they were guaranteed to have them available this Friday. I don't see why they wouldn't be, as I was able to buy one on launch day when picking up my 6 Plus.

    The stores have traditionally had all cases at least in some quantity for people waiting in line on launch day. After those are sold out it is a crap shoot with subsequent stock.

    Looks like the stores near me updated to next Tues availability for all cases now.

    You gotta go and physically look.

    My store that is 1 mile away noted online that there were no Beats Studio 3 headlines available for pickup. I walked in there and there were about 30 boxes of them lined up on the wall.

    I think there will be stock in stores on launch day, but these may go quickly, especially more popular colors.

    I’m planning on trying to get a case tomorrow, but I might just order one today. If I can get one tomorrow, then I’ll return / cancel the one I ordered online.

    If you're close enough, go buy one now...

    Bought two Apple Leather cases on Halloween. Had the store to myself essentially. Two employees did argue whether or not they could sell them to me so YMMV.

    I don't recall seeing any X cases in the Apple Store today but I really wasn't looking for them either.

    Cases are available for pick up in store today when ordered on the Apple store app or Apple.com. You can go in and ask to purchase as well.

    Reps will retrieve them from the back as they are not on display yet.

    I picked up the black & cosmos blue folios just a few hours ago to beat tomorrow’s rush.

    Yep, like Gator says. They are not on display and have to be retrieved from the back.

    I saw several Apple X leather cases for sale at Best Buy today.

    Did they have the silicone as well? Worst case if the apple store runs out, I'll try & get one from best buy.

    Both leather and silicone were readily available. I don't know how long they will last after tomorrow.

    Yep, I ordered my Otterbox Statement case online and picked it up today as well. Just like you, I wanted to beat the iPhone X Mad Rush for launch day.

    Enjoy your new case, and more importantly your brand new iPhone X!

    I'm going to grab a silicone case tonight......I have a feeling the color options, & possible the cases, will be super limited tomorrow.
