Is there a way we can check iPhone availability in the Apple stores? In 2013, you could use the app or online. I tried to add to basket and select pickup at store but that option is not available. I tried adding it under contract, no luck. It's not avail under Next.

I think the Apple Online Store refreshes it's inventory for in-store pick up the next day around 10pm PDT. I'm sure someone will correct me if the time frame is off.

Yes, but where on the app and where online do I look for this?

It's on the bottom to the left. Click on "check availability".

Right now it's probably not gonna be accurate. I think it just says to check your local store for availability. When the chaos dies down & inventory is more stable it will start saying if a device is at your apple store for pickup.

You are correct about the 10PM time. That's what I read in this article, and I'm going to use this method to get my iPhone 6 Plus this year.

However, do any of you know if I can order the phone normally, be told that I have to wait 4 to 6 weeks, but keep checking for in-store pickup daily, and when available, cancel my home delivery order and replace it with an in-store pickup order? I would think that that may not work, since, after you order for home delivery, you use up your handset upgrade eligibility from your carrier.

Just did the same myself. Had cancelled my "not really a preorder" preorder. My November estimated delivery for my 6+ Space Gray 64 GB just became today as soon as I get the email saying its ready for pickup.

The iPhone 6 is available at my local Apple Store today, per the app. But, personal pickup isn't available for iPhones purchased on Next.

I can see availability of phones but if I wait until tomorrow I will be eligible for upgrade. So this is really hard. Just crossing my fingers they have a model/color that I want tomorrow.

I did get the 6 yesterday but had my heart set on the the plus. When they are in stock at my local Apple Store. I have 2 weeks to return the 6 so if I see it available I'll return it and it'll reset my upgrade availability.
