Apple confirms iPhone 7 Plus and jet black iPhone 7 stocks sold out

Once again, it's that time of the year when many Apple fans form huge lines in front of the company's stores in various countries, so they can get the newest iPhone smartphone.

It's happening this year too, but before heading to the nearest Apple Store or authorized retailer to purchase your iPhone 7, here is some information that might save you some time.

According to Apple, initial iPhone 7 Plus and jet black iPhone 7 stocks are now sold out, which means people won't be able to grab these models on Friday when sales commence.

The good news is customers will be able to continue to place orders on Apple's online store, even if these devices appear as sold-out.

Beginning Friday, limited quantities of iPhone 7 in silver, gold, rose gold, and black will be available for walk-in customers at Apple retail stores. During the online pre-order period, initial quantities of iPhone 7 Plus in all finishes and iPhone 7 in jet black sold out and will not be available for walk-in customers. Availability at partner locations for all finishes may vary and we recommend checking directly with them,” reads Apple's official statement.

The Cupertino-based company also confirmed that it is now working hard to get the new iPhone into the hands of everyone who wants one as quickly as possible. From previous experiences, even if these iPhone 7 models sold out so fast, it shouldn't take long for Apple to replenish stocks.

If you plan on getting the iPhone 7 Plus or the jet black iPhone 7, you might want to reconsider if you haven't pre-ordered your smartphone yet.

Yes, Apple have only sold 100k Jet Black iPhone 7's. You're quite right with your usual "hilarious" troll attempts. A nice different take on something about iSheep flocking to buy them all, did you forget that one?

"A nice different take on something about iSheep flocking to buy them all, did you forget that one?" It would never have cross my mind. Besides iPhone is the only game in town in you want iOS.

Well it is the Plus model that they said would be in short supply anyway. That, and the fact that it isn't the top seller anyway, means they literally haven't sold as many iPhones as last year. Every year Apple sells out of the regular model as well. During Pre-Orders, the iPhone 6s was pushed out to 6-8 weeks and that wasn't a great update either.

I still think regular black is better. No scratches, no smudges and it doesn't look like a big iPhone 5C. People are so much into 'see, I've got the latest iPhone' that they forget the practical aspects these days.

Nerdy, if I had the chance; I'd also get The Jet Black one... And guess what, I've no intention to "show-off"... Only Nerds and geeks show off their phones... Wait... YOU ARE A NERD... Never mind, lad... G'Day!

Can you give me one reason to get the jet black. It's not going to look pretty unless you clean it every 5 minutes. And no, nerds do NOT show off. It's quite the opposite.

The one thing I like with a gloss finish, marks and colour aside, is the grippiness. If you're not using it in a case then gloss is grippier than the slippery matte as long as it's dry... But it seems you need to put it in a case to avoid scratches if you wan't any sort of resale value anyway so you make your own choices... I can see "scratchgate" a couple of weeks away sadly, based on the reviews.

Agree It's also funny how isheep made fun of the finger prints when the s6'S came out all glass and finger showing so bad. Now they can't wait to get a phone that show prints just like the all glass does.

Sure, I like how black paint weathers on cars with the swirls and what not and think there will be a similar effect (plus I lean toward clear cases so I'm not overly concerned about smudges). I'm not a typical user anyway, I'm scheduling 5+ years of use of a 7+ for my household anyway (3 as a daily driver, 2 as a device for my son's occasional use) so resale means little to me.

That sucks for people that will camp out and won't even be able to get the color or size they want. Apple made so hard for people to preorder I seriously doubt they sold out. All of the websites I've seen say the same thing about preordering being such a hassle. I tried to buy one outright and it was asking me so much info about my account. I do believe they are hiding stock to make it seem they had great numbers.

Stock sold out? Apple please shut the f*ck up! This is purely marketing, if you had balls you would say how big/small the stock was! I mean the stock could have been 20K, 50K,100K etc units! What I have learned all these years never by from the first batch!

Do you really think that the stock was that low? Just by thinking rationally you should know that the stock was enormous as people love the iPhone.

When they announce the first weekend of 10 million sales, then YOU will shut the f*ck up.

It's pure marketing strategy. More than 60% of the ifans getting the jet black will most likely use a case to prevent scrachgate. I'm just wondering the logic behind paying more and still using a case when no one will even know the color.

I'm part of the 40%.
