If you have pre-ordered a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus, and were expecting to see it delivered sometime in October or November, you may get a pleasant surprise. It appears Apple is making progress on overcoming supply constraints, and some customers are being told they’ll receive their new precious sooner than expected.
Starting this morning, MacRumors began hearing reports from customers who originally had deliveries scheduled for a month or two out but will now be receiving their devices over the course of the next few days.
The publication reports one reader had been told to expect his Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus in November, but instead will receive it sometime on Tuesday. Another customer’s delivery had been scheduled for October 4 to 10, but will instead receive his on Wednesday. A number of Twitter users are also claiming similar good news.
@MacRumors just got a shipment notification on my Jet Black 7+. Way ahead of schedule.

The jet black iPhone 7 Plus is definitely one of the more popular models, selling out soon after pre-orders began on September 9. Shipping estimates for the popular model slipped to weeks, and then months in almost a matter of minutes, frustrating a number of customers. Along with the huge demand, it is also believed the anodization process that achieves the device’s enviable shine has also lead to a more limited supply of the handsets.
