A story on MacRumors also indicates that many people with October (or November) shippings dates on their 7+ JB phones from Apple are getting shipping notifications now.
Exactly. Yes, we all know the whole 80% / 20% thing but the way you made it seem was that it's not possible to get a JB before November, which is completely incorrect. If you have reserved through Rogers, sure, you may wait until November...or maybe even 2017. As for Apple, they have them here and there and you just need to call around or look online! GL guys
...and if they're clearing through the backlog of orders that rapidly for the Apple store itself, presumably that means they should have plenty of extra for carriers in the next couple weeks as well.
Just saw the business side for the 7+ 128 Black jump for the first time. I went from 126 to 104 in the past 2 hours.
