If you’re still pining over that Jet Black iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus that’s yet to reach your door, you should know there’s a good chance you’re going to get it by the end of November. Sure, that means you still have to wait more than a month for the iPhone 7 to ship, but Apple just improved delivery times for both models.
The wait period is currently at 4-6 weeks, down from 6-8 weeks for the iPhone 7 Plus. If you still haven’t preordered yours, then you can go ahead and submit your order, as the phone is likely to reach your door in time for Christmas. The reduced shipping times apply to any iPhone 7 Plus model, regardless of capacity or carrier — even the SIM-free models will ship faster.
Better yet, if you want a Jet Black version of the iPhone 7, you’ll only have to wait 2-3 weeks to get it.
If, on the other hand, want to try the new handset before you buy, you’ll probably be able to get your hands on the Jet Black iPhone 7 in an Apple retail store near you. You’ll still have a hard time finding Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus stock in Apple’s store.
If you’re buying the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in any other colors than Jet Black, you should know that the iPhone 7 is in stock and will ship as soon as you place your order. iPhone 7 Plus stock is still constrained, and you’ll have to wait up to four weeks to have the iOS phablet delivered to your door. Your best bet is hunting the phone in an Apple or carrier store.
