How to Find an iPhone 7 In Stock

This guide will show you how to find an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus in stock at an Apple Store right now.

Earlier this month, Apple announced its two brand new iPhone models, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The pair take over flagship duties from the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and they do so with a number of new features.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus upgrades include a water-resistant design, improved cameras, improved performance, a powerful Retina display, and more. The two devices are getting excellent reviews from critics and users though they aren’t perfect.

Some models are also extremely hard to find as we enter the month of October.

While some shipping times sit in early October, others (Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus) have seen their shipping times pushed into November.

As we push into October and as Apple ramps up production, we should see shipping times start to improve. If you’re looking for a specific model and you want it ASAP, you’ll want to keep an eye on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 stock.

Here we’ll show you how to find an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus in stock in an Apple Store. Checking for an iPhone 7 in stock takes seconds and it could help you get the model you’re after a little bit faster than October or November.

How to Find an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus In Stock

There are a few ways to check for available iPhone 7 and/or iPhone 7 Plus stock from your house or office. You can call ahead of head down to your local store but checking from your computer could save you time.

Your first option is via the Apple website or Apple Store application. Both allow you to check for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus stock at individual Apple Stores.

Choose your desired iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus model and enter your local zip code. The site/app will show you what’s available for in-store pickup. If you want to check another model you’ll have to jump out and make another selection. It can be a bit tedious.

As of right now, most models are still completely sold out but we expect stock to start emerging in early-to-mid October as pre-orders are fulfilled.

Once you find the model you want you can complete your order and pickup your desired iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus model the same day.

There are a couple of other ways to check for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in stock at your local Apple Store.

This iPhone 7 availability check tool and iStockNow.com are two of the best (and perhaps, only) iPhone 7 stock tracking tools available.

The iPhone 7 availability check tool is basic but extremely fast while iStockNow features a map of the United States and Apple Store iPhone 7 stock.

Click on a store on the map and it will bring up a detailed chart that shows you exactly how much iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus stock that store has.

If you’d prefer to buy your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus through a carrier or retailer, these tools won’t help you.

If you decide to go that route, you’ll want to check the carrier/retailer website, call your local store, or head into a physical retail location to ask about iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus stock.

Install iOS 10.0.2 If You Own an iPhone 7

Apple promised to fix an iPhone 7 headphones bug with a software update and iOS 10.0.2 makes good on that promise. 

Shortly after the iPhone 7 release date we started hearing about problems with iPhone 7’s new Lightning EarPods. The issue, which we saw during testing, saw the dongle used to control volume stop working after a few minutes of audio. 

Apple said it was investigating the problem and the iOS 10.0.2 update addresses "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from temporarily not working."

If you experienced this issue or you simply want to prevent it from every happening, install iOS 10.0.2 on your iPhone 7.
