“While the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launched last week, the usual trend of demand outstripping supply has resulted in limited availability of the smartphones around the world,” Joe Rossignol reports for MacRumors.

“Fortunately, prospective buyers can easily check stock at their local Apple Stores using the website iStockNow,” Rossignol reports. “iStockNow uses Google Maps to visualize the real-time status of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus availability at Apple Stores in the U.S., Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K., likely based on Apple’s reservation system backend.”

“The website allows users to filter their search by iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, storage capacity, color, location, and U.S. carrier,” Rossignol reports. “Shoppers can still use Apple’s front-end reservation system, but iStockNow provides a more convenient way to view in-store stock at a glance.”
