    I don't understand how I ordered my phone at 3:02 on the first night your could. I ordered a Matte Black 7 Plus 256 GB and got a ship date of 9/23. I doubt they sold out in 2 minutes for that model. So I assume Apple doesn't have them available for 9/16, which makes no sense if they hold an event to announce a phone and announce a date they are available when they aren't actually available on that day.

    I'm sure they could've anticipated demand better than this. Did they release to more countries at once than usual this time?

    We can only speculate that Apple allocates their total inventory of any particular device among: (1) Apple pre-orders by country and carrier; (2) carrier pre-orders by country; and (3) launch day sales by country and store --not only their stores but other stores such as Best Buy and Costco. That should make for an interesting spreadsheet.

    I am in the exact same boat. 12:05 AMPST 7+ Black 256GB. Ships in 6-8 days w/ delivery 09/23. Not a peep from Apple since I placed the order. It's an Apple marketing mind F***. Hype + scarcity (even perceived) increases demand.

    I agree.
    I originally completed my order at 12:06 am and got a delivery date of 9/27 - 9/29, so I cancelled because I wasn't going to be home.
    I reordered the same phone two days later and got the same shipment date.
    I don't believe Apple intended to have the Plus 256 GB models available for the 16th at all.
    I also think it's a total d### move on Apple's part but unfortunately they do make the best phones and truth be told I't would suck big greasy platypus balls to have to leave the Apple ecosystem so I am stuck waiting.
    So, much respect to Apple for their products but their marketing style is as sleazy and slimy as the republican convention was this year.
    I honestly now believe that Apple will eventually become the Monsanto of tech companies.
    When I no longer need to depend on the Apple ecosystem ( several years, lol) I'll probably switch to something else:
    Eventually Apple's quality won't be as important to me.
    When that happens they will lose a customer.

    I've seen that happen before with previous models. when I bought my Iphone 5 it sold out within minutes. I was really fast and got my order in. This time I ordered the Jet Black 256GB 7 plus. I had to go through the extra steps of applying for their installment plan (I wish there was a way to get pre approval before pre order day).

    In my excitement I stumbled around, forgot to check this or that, and took some seconds longer to get my information through. I think I submitted my pre order about 3:05AM, and still have a delivery date of 9/26 to Oct 3. By the time I got my order in, ship dates already had been pushed to 4 to 6 weeks.

    It's frustrated I know, but not unusual for this phone. It would be nice to get my phone tomorrow, but I have the luxury of having a bunch of phones so I can wait.

    Guys, lets all take a break from bashing anyone. Apple makes as many phones as they can. I don't think there is too much method to them not having a phone for everyone. If they were to make say 25 million phones for launch day they would likely have to have: a) 30 or more facilities who make the phone, causing the leaks that we see to dramatically increase, b) start production in January, or c) sell us inferior products that were hastily made. Keep in mind their processes for making the iPhone increases each year as they come out with new ways to differentiate themselves from the competition and from their previous model. I assume that shiny new Jet Black option takes quite the process time to complete to get that good look.

    Does this happen every year? Yes, but not for the reasons people on here seem to suspect. They are in the business of selling as many phones as they can, don't you think they would rather everyone who wants an iPhone when they come out be able to get them on launch day? Yes, supply and demand are a big reason for them not having what everyone wants, but it is very unlikely that they hold their supply just to make us mad or that they don't make specific models because they knew we want it. Imagine this for a minute: Apple makes 40 million iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models in all varieties for launch day. They sell 25 million of them because the people who aren't quite eligible or can't afford the phone on launch day cannot buy them and so they have dead product for a couple of months, then when the holiday season comes and people are looking to buy them they have those dead 15 million units that were built three months prior, without the new software that will surely be out, without and defects in those units ironed out (See Galaxy Note 7) and keep in mind they are likely still producing them. It doesn't make sense for them to do any of these things. I would urge everyone who is waiting past launch day to keep these things in mind before you swear off Apple. Now don't misunderstand, I think Apple is a great company with some major flaws. I like what they do for education and the environment and for their diversity and acceptance of all people but I do not like their stagnation in some of their products and the fact they charge something around $600 for a leather band for the Apple Watch (see my rant in the Apple Watch Series 2 Forum). I am getting my 256 Black Plus tomorrow so I am also in a different mindset than people who aren't and can remember from years past that my order still being in the "processing" status at this point in the release would have driven me mad but not at Apple or their supply. Hope this helps some of you who might be struggling with waiting for your phone or maybe can be an eye opener for the conspiracy theorists. Cheers.

    Guess it depends on where you live, if you live near a UPS warehouse then yes it is likely. I live in GA and my nearest UPS location seems to be Kentucky as that is where my phone currently is. I think mine will be here tomorrow evening. If I remember correctly my Apple Watch got to my house at like 3pm and my 6s was delivered around 6pm, both at my old house. I live kind of in the middle of nowhere now so I think probably way later. UPS usually drives by my house around 12pm or 1 so there is hope.

    You would think that if it was going to be delayed though UPS would update it. Just seems crazy that UPS can get it that far in that amount of time.

    EDIT: I should also mention, I guess its possible because when I ordered my Apple Watch it shipped from Pennsylvania at 5pm and had it here in SoDak at 10am the next morning.

    I know. It is no big deal. Nothing wrong with my 6s plus.

    Funny thing is, my wife and I were preordering via the upgrade program at the same time online. We coordinated the same time and store to pick them up. We both hit confirm at the same time. She got her reservation, mine said out of stock. too funny.

    For better reference, it's a little thicker than the cable coming from the earphones of the EarPods. Like the part that connects to the mic, not the part that connects to the 3.5
    Do they work on older devices? Like do they work on your current iPhone? Just curious, mostly.

    Good to know in case your headphone jack breaks on those older iPhones.

    I just stopped by my store and they said they had an email from Apple saying no 7 Plus models available in store on launch day. Could have been a smoke screen.
