    Maybe OP meant as far as walk-in availability..? Even still, I imagine that being like a needle in a haystack.

    I got them first week of January. Like 2nd I believe? Caught that window where BB had orders open and shipping next day right after Christmas. It closed/ended as quick as it came.

    Yes I got to play with them for a bit. I really like them... so much that I wish they were still mine Great news, she's happy LOL

    I used one of those in stock alert websites that was suggested on here and within a couple days my local apple store got them in stock and i ordered immediately for instore pickup and was seamless.

    Highly recommended.

    In store availability seems to be a lot worse then a few weeks ago. I used the in stock alerts and was able to snag a pair and i never unsubscribed from the alerts and i haven't received one in at least a week or 2.

    End of December and early January, I was getting alerts basically everyday, multiple times per day, of Apple stores near me getting stock.

    I personally used this website, https://www.machookup.com/ but this one might be limited to only Apple stock whereas the website posted above also includes Target, Best Buy, AT&T and Verizon.

    Either way, I highly recommend subscribing using your cell providers email. This way you receive a text message instead of email which could be the difference in them being in stock or not when you read the email:

    • To get a text use <10 digit cell>@<provider email>.
    • AT&T: 1112223333@txt.att.net
    • T-Mobile: 1112223333@tmomail.net
    • Verizon: 1112223333@vtext.com

    I got mine on launch day but have been able to go through cell providers (AT&T) to get others. Try chatting with an agent and see if they have them in stock. Most of the time, they have (for me), and they ship out in a day.

    My local Apple Store has not gotten any in for quite awhile, slim pickings and all one can do is keep monitoring.

    I don't think the Apple Store or any store for that matter has any or is receiving stock at the moment. Apple is probably rerouting everything to their own stores. 6 weeks it is! But hopefully far less than that.

    I was wondering where they were all going, now that makes sense...satisfying pre-order demand. The ones that pop up at a store occasionally could just be pre-order cancellations.

    I got an alert that Verizon had some in today and ordered a pair. Says shipping today so fingers crossed.

    I gave up on the hunt after trying to use tracking sites for a couple weeks and just got "in line" at Best Buy. Says March 16th, but I have hopes they'll ship sooner. I suppose if I miraculously find some in stock around Los Angeles, I can cancel the Best Buy order and get my money back.
