There's good news for anyone who's been planning to buy the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus. The wait period for the device has just been reduced by Apple. Instead of the original 6-8 weeks posted on their website, buyers can expect to get their new smartphone in 4-6 weeks. So if you're planning on picking up a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus through Apple's website, you'll be able to receive your new device just before November ends.
The revised shipping times seen on Apple's website apply to either the 128GB or 256GB model of the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus. It is also available for both carrier and SIM-free models. In addition to the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has also reduced the shipping time for the Jet Black iPhone 7 model to just 2-3 weeks.
But unlike the Jet Black iPhone 7, the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus is hardly available in any of Apple's retail stores. Neither the 128GB or 256GB variant of the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus can easily be found in any Apple physical store nationwide. If you prefer the smaller Jet Black iPhone 7, however, you won't have any difficulty finding them in an Apple retail store.
While this is the case, it's still good news to know that Apple has shortened the waiting time for the Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus. If you're planning to pick up one today, you can get it for $869 (128GB) or $969 (256GB) SIM-free.
