    Default When can I buy the iPhone 7?

    I have called apple multiple times but it seems no one knows a proper answer. One apple 'specialist' said there will be more stock online tomorrow whereas the rest said they do not know. All iphone 7 plus' are sold out in the UK. I was told this over the phone. All they have said is check back tomorrow at 6am. BUT I CAN'T KEEP WAKING UP AT 6AM EVERYDAY TO RESERVE AN IPHONE THAT ISN'T AVAILABLE. I woke up at 5.30 am today hoping to reserve a black 128gb model but there were none. Does anyone know the stock refresh time for reserving online?

    My guess is Apple's overnight processing of inventory is done in time to open access to users at 6am...

    Some apple 'specialists' also said to me that they don't know what time. If you try and go though https://reserve.cdn-apple.com/GB/en_...e/availability it says come back at 6am. HALF of the UK stores have no iphone 7 or 7 plus'! The other half only have a few iphone 7's in stock. Do you reckon there will be 7 Plus' available tomorrow at 6am? Do apple even get deliveries on sundays?

    Can't you simply order it online via Apple, and wait for delivery? From info online, the wait time is around 3-5 weeks...

    If you are in the U.K. ,then I got my phone sharp 6 am ,the black 128 gb in Matt black iPhone 7 .
    When I reserved there was plus as well and within couple of min all sold out .They did tell me few days back that I would never get it ,but I succeeded .In fact when I went to collect two they brought out .So I bet ,they keep little stock for next days as well .This was Trafford centre .So do try .Maybe Monday would be a better bet as it's not a holiday ,but you never know .Fingers crossed you get one .

    My local store is west quay southampton. Apple said its the main one in the south and thus many people come to it. Did the apple page load 6 am exactly? For me it loaded like 6.02am

    Update: I woke up today again at 5.30am and sacrificed my sleep to attempt to reserve the iphone 7 plus. However, at no surprise there were none except from a gold one. I went through all stores and they also did not have any 7 plus'. Apple stores in the uk hasn't received more stock yet.

    I don't know whether I should try again tomorrow?

    The first week or two after release will be like that. If you really want one and not wait, you'll have to keep checking when inventory refreshes and hope to catch it.

    None had it at 6am. Do they refresh throughout the day? Is there any checker like there was for the 6s and 6s plus in the USA?

    I don't know if they refresh through the day but def everyday in the morning .Unless some person goes through reservation and does not complete maybe it goes back .Are you after 7 plus or 7 in 128 black ?

    Figure 2-3 weeks at best for the 128GB Black. If you would have said Jet Black, I would say Xmas.

    Really, BestBuy has the iPhone 7-Plus in stock? The person mentioned Plus not 7 (standard).. so just wondering.

    Oh, no sorry. I thought the thread was about the regular 7 for some reason. They did not have any 7+s. I'm not sure how I missed that.
