Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have run out of stock in many Apple Stores across the globe owing to overwhelming demand for the flagship phones, following their hyped-up launch last week. Several prospective iPhone buyers and members of the iPhone Upgrade Program were left disappointed with their favourite Jet Black model running out of stock within a few hours after the launch.

Nevertheless, anxious iPhone buyers need not look further than a new website called iStockNow that enables consumers to check which iPhone models are in stock at their local Apple Stores as well as online retail outlets across the world.

The site reportedly uses Apple reservation system's backend-data to display the availability of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus at Apple Stores worldwide via Google Maps. Furthermore, it allows you to search stores by country, city or zip code and also filter stocks by iPhone model, colour, storage space and carrier.

The iPhone models that are in stock are marked as green while those showing red are out of stock. Once you click on any of these markers, you will see the full list of iPhone models that are up for sale, along with the available models, colours, carrier and storage size. Finally, when you click on the available stock, you will be redirected to Apple's website for ordering your chosen iPhone model.

You will also see real-time updates on the availability of various iPhone models at your local Apple Store via iStockNow. Consequently, you will be able to make your buying decision based on the availability of a specific model at a particular time.
