    I was bored today and wrote the script that shows online store availability for DJI Mavic in all Apple stores in US and check stores every minute or so. Below is table with availability in US today. Time is EST.

    It's Python script that scrapes Apple website every minute and then sends me an SMS if drone or battery are available. I already bought a drone so waiting for battery now. No availability for battery in US today at all.

    What part of the apple website are you scraping?

    Cool stuff. I need to learn an automation language for work, planning on learning Python. This is some extra motivation for me.

    I second the question of what exactly you are scraping. I was looking around known JSON calls on apple and I couldn't find what you are referencing. Can you throw the soure code on here or on github. Also why are your numbers different than what's on istocknow?

    I visited a couple of the stores listed and was told that they've taken no deliveries or made any sales today. Where are you getting this info?

    Yeah I called the Santa Monica and the Grove and they didn't have any in stock nor did they have any stock that week. That being said, I always take what any customer service representative says with a grain of salt.
