I never really got Apple Care + before as I always changed phones within a year. But I think I'll be keeping the 7+ for at least 2 years which is the term of the Apple Care. The cost was 169$ + tx which came to 194$. I was careful to ask what it covers and seeing as it covers up to 2 incidents, including full screen replacement for 40$, it's not too bad. Last time I chose not to get Apple Care on my 6 plus as I told myself, it's fine, I'll be careful.. I ended up dropping it accidentally on concrete and to replace the screen cost me around 180$. So I'm not taking risks this time! The good thing about this is that I was told that if I change phones within my Applecare coverage, even though I cannot transfer it, I can request a pro-rata refund according to how many months I've used it.
I was able to reserve iPhone 7 Jet Black 128GB for pickup today at 1:00pm at Apple Bayshore in Ottawa. I can see there are many iPhones 7 JB available for pickup across Canada now.
Reserved my iPhone 7 128GB Jet Black from Market Mall in Calgary for pickup this morning. I was #39 (now #20 thanks to cancellations) in the country pre-ordering through Rogers and my status is still open and haven't heard a peep from them. Called yesterday to see, and the lady told me it wouldn't be until November until Rogers would get the Jet Blacks, yet people can just walk into the Apple store and get them. Pretty embarrassing for Rogers, really. I'll never use their pre-order again.
How about for other colours from rogers?
In most cities I checked this morning, almost every single model of phone was available. The best time to check is 8AM local time, but check for yourself:
