If you’re ready to impulse buy an iPhone X—or just want instant gratification for your purchase—odds are you can walk into an Apple retail store today an pick one up.
If analyst reports are right, only a lucky few will get an iPhone X on November 3rd. Everyone else will have to wait months—not weeks—to get theirs.
Good luck getting your iPhone X on November 3rd because it’s looking like Apple’s inventory is going to be painfully limited.
Online AirPods orders are backlogged six weeks, and it’s practically impossible to find any in Apple’s own retail stores. Until Apple gets inventory under control iStockNow is a handy tool for tracking down which stores may have those elusive wireless earbuds. The Webpage lets you check stores by location on Google Maps to see if AirPods are in stock, and it can tell you about other Apple products, too, like Apple Watch and the MacBook. iStockNow is free to use; all you need is a Web browser and an idea which Apple Store you want to check.
Hopeful shoppers lined up early Monday morning in a mostly fruitless effort to buy Apple’s AirPods today instead of waiting until January for online orders to ship. AirPods are backordered six weeks, but the company said the wireless earpods would be available in its retail stores on Monday, December 19th.
