Some iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models are currently hard to find. If you’ve had trouble securing the model you want, you’ll want to keep an eye out for new stock, check alternative places to order, and look for stock in stores as we push deeper into the fall.
Shipping windows have slipped for some iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. Dates for select storage sizes, colors, and carriers have, in some cases, been pushed into October. In the case of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, some delivery dates are currently situated in late October.
If you’re able to find the model you want, and you want your new iPhone 14 model ASAP, it’s a good idea to place an order right now, if you can do so.
While some models might not ship until October, you might be able to find them available for in-store pickup at Apple or another retailer.
Retailers will have stock on hand moving forward, but there’s no telling how much inventory each store will have. It’s definitely a gamble.
If you’re having trouble finding your top choice in stock, you’ll want to track iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro stock at Apple, carriers, and retailers to see if you can find one for immediate delivery or in-store pickup. If you’re persistent, there’s a chance you’ll get the model you want.
In this guide, we will help you find an iPhone 14 in stock at Apple, your carrier, or your favorite retailer. You can try calling a store to inquire about the inventory on-hand, but you may just want to order online where you can see the estimated delivery date.

Retailers like Best Buy and Walmart might show you a much faster delivery date even though Apple’s delivery estimates are far out.
We’ll continue to update this as iPhone 14 stock fluctuates throughout the year.
Install iOS 16.0.2 for Better Security
If security is important to you, and you're still lingering on iOS 15, think about installing Apple's iOS 16.0.2 update right away.
iOS 16.0.2 doesn't have any security patches on board, but if you're still running iOS 15 your iPhone, you'll get a bunch of new patches when you upgrade.
iOS 16.0 brought new security patches to the iPhone. If you're interested in the exact nature of these improvements, you can read about them over on Apple's security website.
If you skipped iOS 15.7, iOS 15.6.1, or any older versions of iOS, you'll get the security patches from those updates with your iOS 16 update as well.
In addition to those patches, iOS 16 brings some additional enhancements to privacy and security including Safety Check which, according to Apple, will help "people in domestic or intimate partner violence situations review and reset the access they’ve granted others."
The feature also resets system privacy permissions for apps and restricts Messages and FaceTime to the device on hand.
Apple's also made some improvements to Passkeys in Safari. iOS 16 brings a brand new sign-in method that's end-to-end encrypted and safe from phishing and data leaks.
