iPhone 7 Plus availability is slowly but surely improving for members of the iPhone Upgrade Program in the United States. A number of models in select storage capacities and colors (not jet black) are now available in Apple stores throughout California, Florida, and New York.
MacRumors reports that the handsets were also available in other states when they performed a spot check of Apple’s reservation system this morning. iPhone 7 units are also becoming more widely available, though the jet black option is still proving to be difficult to obtain.
Just over an hour ago, Apple Century City in Los Angeles had 128GB iPhone 7 Plus handsets for both AT&T and Verizon in rose gold, while Apple Williamsburg in Brooklyn also had 128GB models for both carriers in black, gold, rose gold, and silver.
Customers are also able to reserve the iPhone 7 Plus at six other Apple stores throughout New York City, including those in Grand Central station, SoHo, the Upper East Side, West 14th Street, and the World Trade Center. Almost all of these stores have models for every carrier.
“Elsewhere, customers can reserve the 5.5-inch model at Highland Village in Houston, South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, Pasadena, Irvine Spectrum Center in Irvine, West County Center in St. Louis, Woodland in Grand Rapids, Fayette Mall in Lexington, Jordan Creek in West Des Moines, and some other stores,” MacRumors adds.
The iPhone 7 Plus has been harder to obtain than the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 since pre-orders went live just over a week ago. Some reports have suggested that the larger model is outselling the smaller model for the first time ever, likely thanks to that new dual-lens camera.[via MacRumors]
