    After a (now) comical sequence of events the iPhone 7 Plus I was supposed to receive on launch day was pushed back to Oct 11th-17th. I sold my iP6+ before the 7 was announced, so I could fetch a higher price. In the meantime I had been stuck with a painfully slow and slightly malfunctioning iP5. Not wanting to wait another month, I remembered from past iPhone launches that there was a site that showed live stock (or lack thereof) of iPhones. BTW, I am not affiliated with the site, just trying to help out the MR community. I found a Black iPhone 7 Plus about two hours outside of Atlanta on Sunday (9/18). Give it a shot! Let me know if anyone has used this site and also gotten one in-store.

    Ah, yes, I remember a similar website from ages ago.
    Now, if only there was one for the Apple Watch Series II...

    From my experiece, yes! When you select a store, it tells you "updated xx seconds ago".

    Your story sounds exactly the same as mine! Apple cancelled my launch day 7+ and blamed Verizon a couple of hours after I sold my 6s+. After a bunch of calls and emails Apple finally admitted it was their fault, but wouldn't help me get a phone. I checked iStockNow on Sunday morning and was able to reserve a black 256gb 7+, which was what I originally ordered. Grats on your phone!

    Your failing to tell people you preordered from Best Buy not Apple

    I love how there is one store 20 minutes away from me and 2 more an hour away, so 3 total, and none of them have any pluses. Except Cincinnati, they have 32 gb pluses for T-Mobile.

    They haven't seen any shipments anyway due to the weekend. Tuesday might see an increase.

    I actually did preorder through Apple. I have a thread asking about Best Buy because of my conundrum and looking for a solution. Capture.JPG

    It's a feature we have, juste need a few Q&A before it's launched :) (emails then push with 3rd party app).

    Thanks a lot for your feedback !

    The ISN service as you know it now has been built here on MacRumors.... discussing with fellow hunters, and finding the best set up to end the chase.

    We try to get on ProductHunt (for the fame :) ) if anyone can help, would much appreciated.

    I registered specifically to say that this website is a godsend.

    I decided to try my luck looking at this website and low and behold, the Apple Store right by me had a Verizon, black 256gb 7+ in stock! So I hurried and made a reservation with Apple to pick it up after work.

    I definitely only planned on getting 128gb, but I couldn't pass it up. Now a few questions - I have a jet black preordered through Verizon that was due for delivery until 11/23. Should I cancel that before I go pick it up? Also, I'm assuming the trade in bonus was only if you buy it through Verizon, right? So I won't be able to take advantage of that if I buy it at the Apple Store?

    I used that site to find the 6S Plus for my girlfriend and myself last year shortly after launch date, and it always had the correct inventory. I used it again this past weekend to get myself a 7 Plus, and I keep checking it every so often to find a Rose Gold 7 Plus for my lady.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    This would be even better if you could include carrier stock.

    It doesn't work in mobile very well and in my area it only shows the one Apple Store and nothing else. Of course, out of stock so useless to me.

    Lol I knew Texas would be nearly out of stock of everything. Even in DFW, there's a huge following of Apple fans.

    Yes, I got a confirmation email that my order was processing and then around 12pm I got an email to that my phone was ready to pickup and to check in between 4:30pm and 5pm. I was there in time and was in and out of the Soho store in about 45minutes. A much better experience than I had 2 years ago when I ordered a phone online for store pickup and took about 3 or 4 hours to get my phone! I guess that's why there doing these check ins.

    I am having the same problem.... and when I call they say they will not confirm if they have it in stock or not. I am tempted to go walk in and check it out but it is an hour away...
