If Apple itself is out of JB's until November, this is the least bit surprising. Anecdotally, carrier stores have poor inventory of the desirable models on launch every year.
Yea I'm not gonna waste my time gambling on AT&T by waiting in line all night when I could drive a little further and camp at an Apple Store. I just stopped by the Apple Store and the rep said that before pre-orders even started there was a large batch of every model set aside for walk-ins on Friday. I'm not saying I'm expecting them to have JB+ models but Jet Black 4.7" models wouldn't be out of the ballpark.
After all, it is
phone at an Apple
store... (her words, not mine)
Because it looks absolutely stunning, and some people don't mind "micro abrasions"; or they just use a case 90% of the time, and when they don't use the case for other 10% of the time, they like admiring a beautiful piece of hardware.
Scratches/smudges or not, the device looks like one big piece of glass. Stunning is an understatement.
potsy, i wouldn't trust what stores tell you
True, but I guess I took them as truthful since he offered to hold me a matte black model if I wanted. Probably wouldn't have been that nice if he was lying to me idk?
I can easily believe that carrier stores will have either none or very little JB. I'm pretty sure they won't have any though. Makes sense.
Yea - even worse is that I had a 6+, got tired of the size and got a 4.7" 6S, ordered a 4.7" 7 and now I'm majorly regretting not going back it the plus D:
