Apple revealed it sold out the iPhone 7 Plus and the new Jet Black models.
However Apple Said : “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.
“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.”
However Analysts pointed out a second factor affecting Jet Black iPhone availability:
Jet Black is the most popular choice for consumers. A preorder survey conducted by the firm showed that Jet Black iPhones accounted for 30-35% of preorders worldwide. In China alone, almost 50% of iPhones 7 preorders were Jet Black.
Though the survey also showed that 50% of preorders went to the iPhone 7 Plus.
Overall, We believe that Apple will sell fewer iPhone 7 models in 2017 than iPhone 6s units in 2016.
