    Default No apple cases in any stores?

    So this launch has been kind of weird (no stock of iPhones in stores) and it seems like the leather cases also are nowhere to be found (I don't have an apple store near me, so can't go to one) but last year and years past best buy and others had cases on launch day and this year they are no where to be found. Anyone have any places outside of apple that have the apple leather case/silicone case?

    I learned this the hard way last year.

    I always, always, always order a case when I buy the iPhone. I ordered an Apple Case for my wife even though she doesn't use them regularly JUST so that there is a backup option if she doesn't get around to getting her case on time. There are never cases at the Austin Apple Store.

    Best Buy here has them along with some other stores. If you live in a rural area you might have to order it.

    Yeah the best buy around me said they had them on the truck the other day. Will have to call and see if they got any in store yet.

    Yes clearly my thread was talking about stores other than Apple since the closest apple store to me is 2 hours away

    Why not ordering a Spigen case from their site or Amazon? The crystal clear ones are normally very good, check them out.

    I walked in and bought my Apple OEM brown leather case for my new Gold iPhone 7 at the Apple store at twelve oaks mall yesterday and there where plenty on the rack.

    Went into my local AT&T and there were about 100 cases in stock, including the leather in all colors.

    What they did not have, was the new dock.

    I like how slim the leather cases are and was trying to get one so I could have it right away. Never had issues on other launches getting an apple leather case.

    I ordered 2 Spigen Thin Fit directly from Spigen and figured they would take a week to arrive. I then ordered 2 on Amazon and they arrived in 2 days, Saturday, along with the 2 from Spigen. I was surprised by the quick shipping directly from Spigen. The Thin Fit looks and feels great. I didn't like my iPhone 7 naked. The side were too slippery for comfort.
