At the end of its first full week on sale, a distinct pattern has emerged for iPhone availability: We West Coasters are out of luck. Though Apple has obviously begun to restock its stores with iPhones, they appear to be working from East to West.
According to Apple’s availability checker, virtually every Apple Store in New York, all of them in New Jersey, and most shops up and down the eastern seaboard are chock full of iPhones, while no state west of Utah has even one iPhone available in Apple Stores. Hopefully, new shipments could arrive out here tomorrow for a weekend pick-up. As a reminder, Apple announces the next day’s iPhone availability at 9 p.m. each day – which is a nice way to avoid going to a store and coming back empty-handed.
