Check iPhone 7 availability using this map
The search for the iPhone 7 you want is proving more complicated than that of some Pokémon, especially for those who want the black, matte and shiny black models. To make things easier, not getting the iPhone you want, which depends on Apple, but at least not wasting time taking useless walks or making unnecessary calls, In iStockNow they offer us a map that is updated in real time and in which we can see the availability of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in each color and in all physical Apple stores around the world. As easy as choosing the model and color and looking at which store the icon appears in green. All information and links below.
The web uses Google Maps to offer us in real time the availability of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, offering data from physical Apple stores in the United States, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Holland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The web allows you to filter the search not only by iPhone model (7 or 7 Plus) but also by color, capacity and operator, although in Spain the operator is not valid. If you are lucky and in your search a store has availability, the icon that the brand will have green. Clicking on it will show you the information of the store, when the information was last updated, and even the models that it has available. It seems incredible that the web can obtain so many details but uses information directly from Apple, so it seems that it is totally reliable.
Playing a little with the map we can see that the device that is most scarce is the iPhone 7 Plus in glossy black, which is not available in any store in the world, although in general all iPhone 7 Plus are in very short supply, while iPhone 7 are easier to find, especially in “conventional” colors, such as gold, silver or pink.
