Huffington Post reports that all three of New York City Apple Store's are sold out of the iPhone, though some AT&T locations in Gotham say they have stock.
Apple Store employees at all three New York locations — the original SoHo store, the 59th Street location, and the most recent addition, on West 14th Street — have confirmed that each store is sold out of iPhones, and they don't know when they'll be getting new ones.
"You can always go online," said an associate at the 59th St store.
Of course, that's just where I've gone to check on availability and the online Apple Store lists five-to-seven business days for delivery, which might simply mean there aren't enough to go around as opposed to a draw down ahead of a refresh.
Then again, there have been rumors circulating for weeks that Apple plans to cut prices and increase storage for both its iPhone and iPod touch product lines.
Temporary shortage vs Imminent update...
