Hello @Steve4xo



I noticed that with them for so many years. It seems to be a issue but they try to resolve it and make the upgrade happen

Hey guys

Found out this about an hour ago on 9to5mac

" Kuo also notes in his release today that the early shortage surrounding the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is not entirely due to market demand. The Jet Black model is signifincantly more challenging for Apple to manufacture, offering a yield rate of 60 percent to 70 percent. Additionally, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launched in 28 countries on day 1 this year, versus 12 last year, again contributing to the supply shortage."

I have a Jet Black iphone 3gs, at least it looks close to it..

obviously not the same but, it is black and glossy just like the 7 jet black model.. both in new states i wonder how different it actually is? (im talking solely about the colour only)

May be it is old news on this forum, but just stumbled on this site:

 

http://appleinsider.com/articles/16/09/23/wide-iphone-7-availability-expected-at-apple-retail-by-oct...

 

Aparently, some shipment issues caused much of these delays. Still have to wait till after October 8th (and only at Apple retail stores).

Hello @marwana71

Yeah that was announced almost a week and half ago from others on here as well. The ships them selfs are to blame as well but the Jet Black isnt as easy to make as everyone thinks from my post above.

I've been stalking the Apple site hard the last several days and I notice that Eaton Centre in Toronto has Jet Black 256GB Pluses for reservation now.  Still no luck getting my 128GB Matte Black.  The hunt continues.

What is the advantage / disadvantage of having a business plan?
