Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus now shipping in December, but you could find one in retail stores
If you plan to order a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus from Apple's website today, you should know that the handset will be shipped in "6 to 8 weeks." This means you won't be getting the device earlier than the 1st of December, barely in time for the holiday season. We're not exactly surprised by this, as Apple has had problems with Jet Black iPhone 7 stocks since day one.

But what can you do if you really want a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus right now? Well, you could try to find one in Apple's brick-and-mortar stores. According to iStockNow, a website that monitors product availability in Apple stores, at the moment, about a third of the stores in the US have at least one Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus. Unfortunately, only the 256 GB version (which costs $969) is relatively easy to find. The 128 GB model (priced at $869) is sold out almost everywhere. Of course, things may change in the near future, so you should regularly check for stock updates.

In case you're wondering, the Jet Black iPhone 7 (the 4.7-inch one) is now shipping in 3-4 weeks, and is widely available in stores.

Before buying a Jet Black iPhone 7 or Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus, you may want to keep in mind that this color variant is easier to scratch than the rest, and seems to have a problem with protective skins, too.

I ordered the 256 gig matte on a Monday, was told it'd ship in 6 weeks, got it that Friday. I'm actually pleasantly surprised with it too, after kinda dissing it. Can we say, foot in mouth.

All good my dude lol. 7 Plus is quite good. Split screen, and picture in picture wouldn't hurt though.

Matte black for my 7 plus and Silver for my regular 7. That jet black is nice but fingerprints and scratches aren't my friend.

If you rock a case, it doesn't matter either way! My Jet black 7 plus has been in a case since day one! I do pull it out naked every now and then at home.

If you don't already have it installed, download Purify from the App Store. Alik told me about it, and it's the best $1.99 I've spent lol. Cleans up the ad infested sites like a dream. PA's desktop site actually works now.

Don't get too greedy, on weekends I whitelist PA and tap on all the banners for PA (I still enjoy this site). I'm just surprised you didn't get it when ios allowed content blockers for safari with iOS 9. That was the first thing I explored when I got the update. Purify was best at the time and seems to be still a good choice and investment. But like I said - PA and others deserve ad clicks/views - don't forget that.

I found one and was about to return it but the owner decided to wipe the data and disconnect the line instead of locking it with icloud. Oh well, my kids has a Jet Black 256GB iPhone 7 Plus to play with.

iPhones have to use a case, because the phone is made of smooth slippery aluminum that is easily scratched

Pretty happy with my (matte) black 256 plus model. Maybe next years model I will go for a jet black (if they keep offering it)

Just picked one up today myself after taking my Galaxy S7 Edge back. So far I love how smooth it is and the build quality is superb.
