How to Easily Check iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Availability at Apple Stores Worldwide

While the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launched last week, the usual trend of demand outstripping supply has resulted in limited availability of the smartphones around the world. Fortunately, prospective buyers can easily check stock at their local Apple Stores using the website iStockNow.

iStockNow uses Google Maps to visualize the real-time status of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus availability at Apple Stores in the U.S., Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K., likely based on Apple's reservation system backend.

The website allows users to filter their search by iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, storage capacity, color, location, and U.S. carrier. There is also a "no CDMA" filter that narrows the search to iPhone models built for GSM networks, but note that CDMA models support both CDMA and GSM networks.

Apple Store locations with availability based on the search criteria display a green marker, while stores that are out of stock display a red marker. Clicking on an individual marker opens a window with an expanded model-by-model breakdown of availability, and the time that stock was last updated at that location.

istocknow
iPhone 7 Plus availability appears to be slowly improving in parts of the U.S., particularly in the New York and Los Angeles areas. In Manhattan, for example, select iPhone 7 Plus models are currently available at Apple's Fifth Avenue, Grand Central, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, and World Trade Center locations.

Shoppers can still use Apple's front-end reservation system, but iStockNow provides a more convenient way to view in-store stock at a glance.

I'd honestly wait another month before buying iPhone 7, just incase there are more issues.

dont think a month is going to make a difference, to be honest. QC issues are always a thing, no matter how far or early you are into a life cycle.

If batteries were repeatedly exploding like Note7, sure, but waiting seems futile

And I thought that it was going to be a flop because it has the same shape as the one before and doesn't have an headphone jack...
