    Just yesterday they had the Iphone Xs Max 256 GB gold in stock at 12 stores near me. And when I checked today they are not available anywhere! Not in any color!

    Does anyone have any idea whats going on?

    The Xs is likewise out of stock in my area. I guess both the Xs Max and the Xs are very popular phones. It's going to be even worse when the Xr goes on sale. Just be patient, the stores will be restocked soon enough.

    They are still in stock at my local Apple store, in Anchorage, AK.

    Where are you checking inventory?

    Yes, today maybe all sold out, tomorrow, maybe not. Apple Stores get shipments every day. Seen where inventory in the morning, 30 minutes later, none.

    And to echo above, my nearest store has all colors, configs, sims in stock for all the phones. And appears the three other close by stores as well.

    Just maybe running into a run on devices, especially if in an area with no sales tax or foreign tourists.

    Every day after 6 Pm they turn off the availability and the next day at 8 AM it comes back. So check tomorrow morning. I've seen this every day on my apple store app where after 6 pm it disables and at 8 am it re-enables it.

    Well you said “everywhere”. Alaska is included in “everywhere”.

    They are out of stock at 12 stores near Groton, CT. They don't even have them at New Haven or the Providence Place!

    Thanks for replying!

    I just got back from my AT&T store in San Antonio Texas and they are sold out of the Max.

    Apple is headed for another blockbuster record quarter. These phones cost more than MacBook Airs!

    Check Best Buy. My local one had various sizes and colors.

    Conspiracy theory. They are pulling stock due to the antenna and WiFi issues people are having.

    Pretty sure that's a non-issue.

    If you check in the morning - the retail locations update their inventory. In nyc every morning there’s stock for basically every model in almost every store.

    Oddly enough, at 6:30pm all 12 stores in my Chicago area showed 256gb and 512gb available so I figured an easy trip tomorrow. This thread caused me to go look, and now all 12 are showing completely out of both sizes. Must be something with the timing of the website updating?

    Yep I’ve noticed that as well with the series 4 watches.

    I bet if you keep checking online in the morning you’ll see the model that you want. For some reason the iOS app wasn’t updating but the website did and showed stock, so I did a store pickup that way.

    Submariner? I spent quite a bit of time in Groton in a previous lifetime.

    Interesting observation. All Xs and Xs Max color and storage options out of stock at Apple stores in my surrounding area which wasn't the case for first week of release. Will check status again tomorrow morning to determine if they were pulled or supply exhausted from exchanges.

    Yep. i have been checking inventory and like a clockwork it disappears every evening and reappears in the morning. There is no shortage, at least in PA/NY/NJ area.
