Apple IPhone 7 / 7 Plus Reservation numbers / Questions

Talked to a good friend who works in bestbuy. Apparently, they got word that they likely wont have invenroty of jet black iphone 7's for the next two months. Talk about inventory constraints. Lets hope that rogers doesnt fall into the same trap. I always had better luck reserving my devices at 8am on apples website and booking an appointment to come in. Logically speaking, my number is 168 for iphone 7 plus 128gb in jet black, based on that number being nationwide i would assume rogers recieve at least more than 200 units of that model phone for the entire country. If thats not the case then apple is clearly cheating everyone else over and forcing people to be click ready before 8am hits to reserve. Ridiclous stuff.

Hello @jeffyjoe

Unless they changed it or ur reservation was done a different way then this would happen but those statues I gave are for most businesses and corporate customers reservations

Hello @elkhazendarramy

Exactly what I said.... That's how it works Sadly. Apple sends about 80-85% of their stock to their own stores before anyone else. I said that a couple of times as well. The carriers only get a small portion at a time from Apple I noticed. So yes that is also correct. Someone that works at Best buy i was told the same thing this morning.

I'm #18 in line for the 128GB Jet Black 7+. Reading through some of this, it seems like I won't have my device on launch day, likely. 

 

How do I go about getting it from the Apple Store? I remember for the 6, there was a link you could click and randomly they would become in-stock and you could reserve the device and pick it up. Is there something similar this year?

Hello @officialbferg1

You go on Apple.ca and check on Pre order.. It would give you the time frame there. For now it shows November for the exact model you are looking for. Its worth a shot though.

No they took that down it seems

Are these set-backs and delays for the iPhone 7 Jet Black only? I'm 18 for the Black i7+ 128GB, and just wondering if I'll likely be affected by these delays?

So my Apple order (7+ 128 gold) is still showing as "Processing Items". Is this normal with Friday just around the corner?

The reservation max number keeps increasing, as time goes by.

 

I'm still at the same number, #250, but now it's #250 of 405.

 

Does this mean they are getting more stock?
