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.
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?
By doing a carrier upgrade when you click pre order on apple.ca you get a notification that tells you that the page wont be live again until 8 am on the 17th of september. This is how it was for the 6 and 6s if im not mistaken. Everyday they reset the site and then the clicking wars begin. Thats how i got my hands on my 6plus. I had it reserved through rogers and then cancelled becaue i was able to get it on the second day after launch by being up super early with really good internet i got lucky and put one aside for myself and just came into the appointment. I recommend any one who is in a massive rush to get their apple fix soon to do that. Everyday the page goes live at 8am where you will have the chance to book what you want.
