iPhone ‘Currently Unavailable’ via U.S. Apple Store online

Want an Apple iPhone in the U.S.? Don’t bother trying Apple’s online store which lists both the 8GB and 16GB iPhone models as “Currently Unavailable.”

Get ready: Apple’s next-gen iPhone doesn’t get more imminent than this!

The U.S Apple Store is here.

MacDailyNews Take: Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC – starts June 9th) sure seems far away, doesn’t it?

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Reader “Mike in Helsinki” for the heads up.]


  1. I’m in the market for a new phone…. if the new iPhone is half as good as everyone’s making it out to be, I may be first in line….

    kind of like this is the first post. . or the second..

  2. Like I said, I wouldn’t think releasing a new iPhone, an update for the original, and a ton of software for both all at the same time is a good idea. They needed to be staggered for customer support.

  3. obviously the 3g phone will be available on 6/9. Smartly they want to minimize returns and old stock. Enough info has been leaked so that anyone interested in buying a phone now will wait for the imminent release. Duh!

  4. New iPhone now, and then something else later in June. Maybe new hardware or something bigger. Maybe a tablet, or a next gen iPod. I would like an integrated washer dryer. Bluetooth communication. Tells one to speed up if the cycle is finishing sooner.

    “many” as in many new things coming!

  5. The most interesting thing here is that it says ‘unavailable’, rather than giving a several day shipping delay. Every day it looks more like 2.0 will be out sooner rather than later. And it looks like that 10 million sold in ’08 will be a no brainer if all of these countries we’ve been hearing about actually do start selling it. If Apple gets something worked out in China and Russia, you can just forget it, they won’t be able to make iPhones fast enough. I can’t wait to see what that Nokia boss has to say about iPhone around mid December. My guess is that it will be something along the lines of ‘No comment’. The second half of the year is shaping up to be a blockbuster for Apple.

  6. Where there not rumors of a May release several weeks back? Yes, they were centered around Italy. By May 20th we should see iPhone 2.0. That doesn’t mean software 2.0…That would be at the WWDC along with what ever else Steve has up his sleeve.

  7. Better to make people wait than have them buy the outdated model a week before the new model is introduced and then winge and whine about how Apple hoodwinked them. This is especially true if big price cuts are coming. Sure Apple will loose a few sales to RIM, LG and the other sucky look-alikes, but those customers will either come crawling back to Apple or they weren’t really going to buy an iPhone anyway.
