Wow, looks like the Sprint versions are the easiest ones to find. Of course, those are also the only ones that are carrier locked, which severely diminishes their reuse and resale value if you decide to switch carriers or sell the phone.

Also, it looks like the 128 GB and gold colored phones are comparatively easy to find. Big change from last year when the max capacity and gold colored 5s models were the hardest ones to find.

The 64 GB 6 Plus seems like this year's unicorn. That capacity seems like the sweet spot, and I would guess it has the greatest demand.

Why does a website about sea turtles have this? Genuinely curious.
From their website: "Why the heck does SEATURTLE.ORG have an iDevice checker?

Because we are Apple fanboys and we want to know when our favorite iPhone model will be available! Also, SEATURTLE.ORG runs on Apple products. From the Xserve that powers this website, to the iMac where most of the programming happens, and the iDevices that allow us to keep tabs on the sea turtle world from where ever we are."

The only drawback I see to this is that the site checks availability only at Apple stores. It won't check at any of the carriers or any other outlet (Sam's club, Walmart, Costco, Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc.).

If there were a site that could check stock at all of those, then you're looking at the ultimate place to check.
