    What's going on with Apple, anyway? Kinda ridiculous.

    Buy one in store. A lot of stores are now stocked with iPhone 7s and 7 pluses in all colors and configurations.

    Same here. But mine was 256GB. I got tired of waiting for my Pre-order that never shipped even though i pre-ordered 20 minutes after preorders went live lol

    As another user mentioned, iStocknow is fairly accurate in determining available colors and configurations. In my area, stock seems to be widely available, with the exception of Jet Black in some area's.

    Yes, check iStocknow.com -- my original estimated date for a 7+ MB 128GB was mid November. I checked the site twice a day, found one locally and did an in-store pickup earlier this week (though for the 256GB model). 10AM and 2PM EDT seemed like the best times to check. The only issue is that you'll need to cancel your existing online order, so it's a bit of a gamble. You can't do a local purchase if you already have an order in the system. Luckily, I was able to cancel my online order which took a few minutes and have enough time to place a 2nd order for pickup before someone else got it.

    It's always been a problem to get Apple products near launch, but this year seems particularly bad.

    i reserved one through the reservation page, then while i was in the store i couldn't cancel via the apple mobile site, so i logged onto a Mac in store and canceled the online order from there ( :

    It is interesting to see the ship times still that far out being over a month since launch. Chances are the phone will come sooner but is odd to say the least. Especially as mentioned above you have better chances to reserve online.

    Shipped BTO, but in-store? Several have popped up recently meaning we are catching up. Go out and walk into a store.

    Is the AT&T trade in deal still good if you get the phone at an Apple Store?

    Johnny Ive needs to bless each device that leaves the factory, for quality control

    it involves needing to say al-ewww-mini-um, a few times in succession.

    I think apple are tweaking a few things with the engineering of the plus, trying to stop the creaking, popping sound with the case and reduce the processor hiss and buzz.
    Ive noticed on istocknow in the UK there are no pluses for sale in any stores, apart from 1 or 2 devices in central London, which is ridiculous weeks after a new release.

    Apple must be trying to sort something without hoping people notice.
    If the plus is consistently flawed with the creaks and excessive processor noise Apple should have done a recall or not have let them pass quality check.
    I suspect in few weeks stores will have good plus stock and they wont, click, pop or hiss as much.

    It's not very accurate, I ordered a black 256GB 7+ on Oct. 18, shipped Oct. 20 for a Oct. 27 delivery. When I first put my order in, it said 3-4 weeks.

    Remember Apple is still launching in new markets so they're allocating stock to other parts of the world.

    Wait... there's people still waiting for delivery?

    Go buy it in a store already!!! Pretty soon people are going to tell you to wait for next year's phone.

    They are still kind of hard to find in store. We picked up a 7 plus 256gb rose gold and a 7 plus jet black 256gb in store a week ago. My husband got the last jet black in store that wasn't reserved.

    This is wrong. No store around me has any pluses. 7s, yes.

    Got one yesterday afternoon at a local Apple Store. 256 GB Sim Free 7 Plus. Keep looking. Don't look at iStock, look on Apple's website. iStock wasn't accurate for me.

    No intention of using iStock. I assumed the post was from someone connected to that site.

    I am having trouble finding the black plus in store. Haven't seen one in stock in about a week in my area of any storage capacity. All others colors including jet black I keep finding. The wait continues I guess.
