iPhone 6 Availability Checker Tool Shows You Where To Get The Exact Model You Want
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been out for a while now, but stock continues to sell out fast and finding the exact device you want can be a challenge. Typically if you’re hoping to find one in an Apple Store or other retail location, you’re either going to be crossing your fingers and driving around town or doing a lot of calling to check availability yourself… but not anymore thanks to iStockNow.
iStockNow is a simple to use website that is able to check iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus stock for all device configurations, colors, and carriers, across 2785 shops in 27 countries. Just use the map to locate your area, check availability, and see what devices are in stock and where you can get them, all from a single screen. This is about as easy as it gets, and it certainly beats calling around to a million and one places yourself.
For those in the USA, you’ll be able to check iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus stock for all configurations, all major carriers including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint, all three colors, and all three storage capacity sizes, and what’s available at the Apple Store, Best Buy, and Target. iStockNow says that coming soon are Walmart and Radioshack stock too, so availability tool to broaden soon. Once you find what you want, you may want to see if you are upgrade eligibility before heading to buy one at a carrier subsidized price.
For those not in the USA, the tool is multinational and able to check the stocks at Apple Store and other retail locations in 27 countries(!) including Canada, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, italy, Luxembourg, Nethlerlands, Norway, Portgual, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, and United Arab Emirates.
Now all you need to do is figure out which new iPhone you want to buy… the iPhone 6, or the iPhone 6 Plus? I’m partial to the iPhone 6 Plus for the amazingly large screen and stellar battery life, but the iPhone 6 is a fantastic phone too. Whichever model you go for, choosing the middle-range 64GB option is a good idea if you intend to take a lot of pictures and store a lot of media and apps on the device, but the 16GB is fine if you don’t run out of space, or just unload all your stuff regularly to the cloud or a computer.
Of course if you don’t want to shop around in a local store, you can always order online from Apple. It may take a few weeks to arrive due to supply shortages, but you’ll get exactly what you want delivered right to your door, and it’s hard to beat that convenience.
