iPhone 7 Stock Availability Is Still Constrained – Analyst
According to the latest report from a reliable Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, the stock availability of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus still leaves much to be desired. Apple is still trying to catch up with the demand. This suggests that not all users will get their phones in time during the holiday season.
Munster checked 134 Apple Stores across the United States and discovered that only 47% of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models were available in-store. That’s slightly better than 40% a month ago, however, still worse that the stock availability of the iPhone 6s last year, which at the same time was at 100%. The analyst notes that iPhone 7 Plus stock remains constrained.
iPhone 7 models remain more widely available than iPhone 7 Plus models by a significant margin.
Piper Jaffray said iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus inventory in China continues to be more constrained than on Apple's home turf.
Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September. The demand for new handsets is rather strong. Jet Black iPhones are very difficult to find.
