A developer called Mordy devised a tool that checks the availability of the devices at nearby stores depending on the user’s zip code, desired color and operator.

Apple has now forced the operator with a DMCA takedown notice to close.

The company called the site illegitimate as it “scrapes and collects data from apple.com in violation of the apple.com Internet Service Terms of Use.”

“I’m not really interested in picking a fight with apple so… I guess it time to just say goodbye,” the site owner said.
