After months of anticipation, Apple debuted its new top-of-the-line smartphone, the iPhone 7, on September 7. And the iPhone maker didn’t stop there: It took the wraps off the Watch Series 2, the wearable follow-up to last year’s Apple Watch.

If you have your heart set on a shiny new iPhone 7 or Watch Series 2, the good news is that you won’t have long to wait. Both are now available now in stores and online. There are exceptions depending on model, of course, but it seems Apple has taken great pains this year to ensure the buying process proceeds as smoothly as possible.

If you’re wondering just when, where, and how you can get your hands on Apple’s latest, not to worry. We’ve compiled a handy, up-to-the-minute guide with all the relevant availability and pricing details.

How to order the iPhone 7


If you’re ordering the devices directly from Apple, head to the company’s site now. Orders are live, and both iPhone 7 models are listed on, and in the Apple Store app on iOS devices. Brick-and-mortar stores also carry the devices.

The advantage of ordering from Apple is that the company offers a myriad of iPhone 7 configurations to choose from. You can select from every color of iPhone including jet black, black, silver, gold, and rose gold. And you can choose between any of the iPhone 7’s three storage capacities: 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

If you’re planning to grab an iPhone 7 unlocked, here’s how the pricing breaks down by model:

iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus
32GB $650 $770
128GB $750 $870
256GB $850 $970

iPhone Upgrade Program

The price tag is more digestible if you’re a paying member of Apple’s yearly upgrade program. Fees are monthly and extend over a two-year period, and Apple’s premium warranty program, AppleCare+, is included in the purchase price.

iPhone 7 iPhone 7 Plus
32GB $32.41 $37.41
128GB $36.58 $41.58
256GB $40.75 $45.75

The catch? Not everyone is eligible. If you’re an existing member of the upgrade program, you need to have purchased an iPhone 6 or 6S a minimum of six months ago and paid the equivalent of 12 paid installments to order. If you’re not, you cannot enroll online — you’ll have to visit an Apple store and do it in person.
