    For people who ordered at midnight on release of the 7 plus, was there a delay, or did it go relatively smooth? I'm asking because I'm trying figure out if I should pre-order this year or walk into AT&T.

    I preordered right when they went live and had no issues. Now with that being said, sometimes there are hiccups. I would say if you are planning to get the more expensive iPhone x (or whatever they call it) preorder might be the way to go as supply in store may be very limited at launch. If you are going for the 7s(or whatever it is called) that one should be more readily available in store come launch.

    My recollection is that there were availability issues with the 7+ last year and that stores didn't have them in stock on release day. They shipped out close to on time, just that stores didn't get them in until several days later. Even once stores started getting them, it was two or three months before they could keep them (particularly the black colors) in stock.

    So, I just want the 7 plus with a black front, so I guess space silver, or whatever they all it, since black is the most popular.

    I assume you meant 7S Plus, but in case you did mean 7 Plus, you should be able to buy that right now without any nonweather-related shipping delays.

    No, I was thinking about why the 7 plus was originally delayed, upon release.

    This year's going to be hugggeee. I'd preorder and wait by the mailbox. I got my 7 Plus in late October last year and the matte black and jet black were still backordered

    Because it met more popularity than expected!

    If you preorder right away you will have it by then (unless they have a delayed launch). If you wait you most likely will have to wait until mid oct-nov before getting it.

    I would recommend pre-ordering it, which means you’ll get it on release day.

    The iPhone 7 preorder went smoothly (unless you were looking for a jet black model). This year is a toss up because there’s so much built up excitement. My guess is the lower two models will be relatively easy to get but the “iPhone X” will be tough (assuming it goes on preorder at the same time as the others).

    I'm going to give the "X" version a year. If rumors are true, LG is struggling with amoled technology. I'll do the 8 plus. If that's not available, I'm struggling between the 7 plus or the Note 8

    I pre-ordered my 7 Plus Matte Black 256 GB last year and got it by the end of September. I'd stay away from the most popular options, which are typically the base models. Going for the most expensive, if you can afford it, may improve your chances for receiving one sooner than later since not as many people will be going for those models.

    The jet black 7 Plus had availability issues all the way through November 2016. If you're walking to an AT&T store on day one, you better hope you're the first in line.

    So true. Those things were unicorns for the first few months.

    Yep. I had to get the silver iPhone 7 Plus because that was the only color option available in 256GB at my local Apple Store.

    Heck, I'd say it wasn't easy to just get one at will until January 2017
