The Jet Black Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will now ship in October or November
With pre-orders of the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus already off and running, the Jet Black version of the phones appear to be the most popular. Earlier today, some configurations of the new iPhone models dressed up in that color were pushed back to a November delivery. While some iPhone 7 units in Jet Black now show delivery in three to four weeks, the iPhone 7 Plus in that hue still shows an arrival delayed up to November.

Some models are showing delivery on September 16th, the actual launch date for the phone. For example, at Verizon the 32GB iPhone 7 in Black will be delivered on next Friday. The Silver model will arrive a week after that, as will the Gold and Rose Gold models. The 32GB Apple iPhone 7 Plus in Black will arrive on October 5th, while the Jet Black unit with 32GB is scheduled for a November 23rd delivery.

At T-Mobile, iPhone 7 shipping times aren't terribly delayed (2-3 weeks at most) although the 128GB model in Jet Black won't ship until November. All Jet Black versions of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus are also delayed until November. At AT&T, all 32GB iPhone 7 models will arrive on September 16th. The 128GB and 256GB Jet Black units will be shipped in early to mid October. All iPhone 7 Plus units with 32GB will ship next month, while the 128GB and 256GB versions in Jet Black will ship in November.

Besides the new iPhone 7 models, pre-orders have also begun for the Apple Watch series 2. The second generation smartwatch will be released on September 16th.

I went Matte Black after all. I thought I'd LUV the Jet Black variant, but I hate fingerprints with a passion.

As do I, Kiko. I despise cases which is why it's such a shame that Samsung's recent devices are such fingerprint magnets. Never leave the house without a microfiber cloth these days. ;) Went with the Jet Black 7 Plus and was so happy I got in early, because my order went through with no issues.

I think buying a jet black iphone 7 is like having " a girlfriend who is too beautiful to have sex with. You fear you might heart her during sex " . So it is better to go with the second best thing that i can get. At least i will enjoy it without any fear.

Interesting outlook you have on things.

To me its more like: A girlfriend who looks amazing with makeup (jet black when clean), but average without makeup (jet black covering in fingerprints) But that's just me, enjoy your new phone :)

Just bought a crystal clear TPU case for my jet black 7+. Sexy.

It will turn orange/yellow in a couple of months lol, never buy clear TPU cases because they literally can't stay clear.

Happened to my old TPU case. Bartenders Keeper fixed it right back to clear (gold can of white powder that you get wet and rub in - you can find it the cleaning isle of most grocery stores)

Why go though the hassle though, why spend money to simply fix a case, just buy a case with a clear polycarbonate back instead. To give you more options, you can also buy concentrated hydrogen peroxide in the hair products section, to turn a yellowed case clear again.

I had a clear case was really good at showing all the dust and crap that was piling up under there.

Isn't it the same thing as the so-called optical zoom on the iPhone 7 plus? Talking about the how the LG G5 camera shifts from wide-angle to normal lens?

people already forget about G5 and apple is the inventor of this new "optical zoom" /s

Watch carefully, Wide Angle Camera has a zoomed out capture. The telephoto just brings it to normal mode. Once he goes to normal mode it is capturing the same thing as the other phone.

Half the cases are now useless because those with a battery will now eat up the only port on the phone. iPhones already have terrible battery life, so now you can choose between a your phone dying, or having it live without audio. Or, you can pay Apple for wireless making your purchase of the iPhone pretty much $900+.

Dude........making sense is an art form, and you're more a science guy. I'd appreciate it if you'd stick to the actual discussion instead of insisting on trolling. You're too smart to be this stupid....... #Bebetterthanthebest

Lol, bro I don't know why you have a stroke or aneurysm every time I comment. Just trace my comment back to the original comment I was posting the reply to and it will make sense in context. But just in case you need me to spell it out, I was replying to comment #2 by trojan_horse about slapping a case on the new iPhone which is now more difficult to do with battery cases because you can't use headphones with those anymore. Don't know what's so trolling about that fact, but maybe your definition of trolling includes point out the truth.

Terrible battery life? LMFAO. They have one of the best size to life ratio/SoT on any smartphone in terms of optimization. Put the same battery in a 1080p Android phone and it will die in 4 hours.

So apparently what you're saying is... That It will be just like the iPhone.

You obviously don't have a clue so it's probably better to stop talking rather than make yourself look like a complete dick (oh wait, free green thumbs for being against anything Apple!). I don't really care about all the tests because some say one thing while others say another and fanboys will pick their favourite. What I do know is that when I spend a day with friends using Android phones - from HTC to Sony to Samsung Galaxies, my iPhone always seems to be lasting longer than any but the Sony. That's a real-world, similar use situation so that's what I judge my phone on.

#Badumtiss Surprised turdkord isn't out trying to defend and justify Samsung's poor QC and judgment.

I like the matte black a little more. Just a little too much shine in the jet.

31. Unordinary unregistered

So sexy though! Of course, its subjective

38. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I want that sexy gold color or the rose gold.
