    Check again after 8am local time. That's when they refresh the stock.

    I've been monitoring stock pretty regularly and it's been changing at different times throughout the day. This morning around 6:30 EST my closest store had a rose gold 7 Plus that wasn't there last night but it disappeared, and then a black 7 Plus showed up about an hour ago and then promptly disappeared. I'm not personally seeing any correlation to 8:00 AM.

    The inventory seemed to refresh at about 12:02am last night...went from Hawaii being the only location to nearly every state having reservations available. I still had to check like 5 stores in my area (DC) before I found what I wanted though (128gb matte black)...apparently some stores either weren't slated to get some models today, or sold out in seconds.

    Not sure then. For me it updated a little after 8am. It appears that there's no rhyme or reason to it.

    Not sure how it was today, but yesterday morning (Sunday) you couldn't check stock or make reservations for any model until 8:01 am. States were grayed out until 8:01 am local time - as soon as the clock turned 8:01, the stock was updated/refreshed and you were able to book a reservation.

    One guy I know through a mutual friend works at one of my local apple stores. According to him Apple really is trying to meet demand for the phone and stores will be getting shipments in rather quickly (faster than the Iphone 6 Plus).

    Maybe the online orders from the carriers will start flowing soon then.

    Stores get stuff at different times during the day. I reserved a 7 Plus for my wife today. I checked about 5 times within 3 hours and I was able to get exactly what she wanted.

    I picked up my 7 plus matte black. 32gb today from the Apple Store in Ann Arbor Michigan.

    Check that out. Lets you check stock of stores and make reservations to pick up your phone. This is what I did. Refreshes at 8am local time. Although technically for the iPhone upgrade program, they didn't say a word to me about using att next.

    I'm new here so to speak...usually lurk from time to time, but decided to join so I could share this info in case no one knew about it. Good luck guys!
    I just wanted to say thank you! I click the link and found the one iPhone 7+ in black I wanted an hour away! Somebody reserved it and never picked it up so I took it! You are awesome! Now I don't have to wait until October 4

    Great link...I got my 7 launch day but crazy I have:

    6 stores within 90 mins in Pennsylvania and another 3 if you count New Jersey. I have 9 stores within 90 mins and some people post about being 2.5 or 3 hours away from the closest store.

    When I went in to exchange my ATT model for the Verizon model a few hours ago, it was just me and one other guy waiting with reservations. If it were for me wanting to make sure my ATT sim activated properly on the Verizon model, I would've been in and out in about 15 minutes. I think folks should use that reservation link if they don't want to wait for their shipments.

    I sent my friend the link and he was able to find a black 128gb 7 plus and picked it up just now.

    Have you tried the link previously posted in this thread?
    I just did and it shows no reservations available in my state or any state around me lol
    That's probably the case for most everyone

    More or less, but I've been seeing stock pop up at random times at some of my local Apple Stores. I'm hopeful I'll get my black!

    I was admittedly not impressed when they unveiled these phones. Didn't think it was much of an upgrade. But the more I read on it the more I realized that it was, to me at least. Came from a 6s plus. The water and dust resistance is wonderful for me, since I work in a dusty and wet environment, and the home button, well the home button is freaking awesome!
    I figured the same thing before I watched the keynote. After that and the processor benchmarks I was amazed.

    None in Virginia, except several hours away. And there are at least 4 within easy driving distance and more if you don't mind driving a big farther.

    The one store that does have them only has the 7. Didn't bother checking the size or color.

    Thanks for the tip! I ended up getting a silver 7 Plus from the Partridge Creek Apple Store in Michigan on launch day but I'm still on the hunt for a black.
    I scored a 7+ 128 matte black from the East Lansing Store. Checked the link at 9 am Sunday morning and they had them. Reserved it and returned my i7. Very happy I did

    Not everyone trying to get an iPhone 7 lives in Virginia.

    Lucky! The Partridge Creek store had one this afternoon and I hesitated for a minute (I have a 256 GB silver right now) and it was gone. Really hoping a 256 shows up at the Partridge Creek or Somerset store within the 14 day return period.

    I'm sure it will.. just have to check it first thing in the morning. Twelve oaks and the Ann Arbor Store may be worth a try also. I've always have had great luck at the East Lansing Store.

    Novi is doable (maybe 45 minutes drive time, outside of rush hour). Ann Arbor is a hike though. I might just add Twelve Oaks to my watch list.

    I just checked inventory again and Michigan is out of all models at the moment. Apple probably redirected them to Virginia to keep @robertk328 quiet.

    Lol!! Check in the morning I bet one pops up. I have a buddy on the prowl also. But he's looking for a Verizon one.

    Not keeping me quiet! I only looked because the thread mentioned it. I can be very easily persuaded.

    Oh, I hope you drop yours on a tile floor.
