So much for the design similarities between the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 making people hold off buying new models until next year. Apple has issued a statement saying all iPhone 7 Plus models—in every size and color—have already sold out, reports TechCrunch. Additionally all jet-black iPhones have already sold out, too—so don't expect any of those phones available in Apple stores this Friday. Here is the statement Apple has emailed to media outlets:
"We couldn't be happier with the initial response to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and we are looking forward to beginning sales through our retail stores and partners around the world. Beginning Friday, limited quantities of iPhone 7 in silver, gold, rose gold, and black will be available for walk-in customers at Apple retail stores. During the online pre-order period, initial quantities of iPhone 7 Plus in all finishes and iPhone 7 in jet black sold out and will not be available for walk-in customers. Availability at partner locations for all finishes may vary and we recommend checking directly with them. Customers can continue to order all models in all colors on apple.com. We sincerely appreciate our customers' patience as we work hard to get the new iPhone into the hands of everyone who wants one as quickly as possible."
