“Apple announced its new generation of iPhones on Wednesday during an event in San Francisco. The iphone 7 and 7 Plus—available in five colors: gold, rose gold, silver, black and jet black—will launch on Sept. 16 with preorders beginning on Sept. 9,” Susmita Baral reports for International Business Times. “Various models of the new Apple smartphones in jet black reportedly sold out within minutes, according to users on Reddit, leaving their availability up in the air.”

“Neither the jet black iPhone 7 (4.7-inch display) nor the jet black iPhone 7 Plus (5.5-inch display) are available for purchase in the original shipping date—Sept. 16,” Baral reports. “While certain models (128 GB and 256 GB, to be exact) of the iPhone 7 is available in ‘3-4 weeks’ at the time of publication, the iPhone 7 Plus is only available in jet black later this year in November. Users who want to get their hands on the device sooner may have better luck standing in line at an Apple store on launch day.”

“The source of the delay for the jet black iPhone 7s is unclear but not unheard of when it comes to Apple launching new devices,” Baral reports. “In this particular case, it could be Apple underestimated the demand or the novelty of the glossy black smartphone could have consumers buying the new color.”
