Finally, after a long wait, Apple is taking pre-orders for its next-generation collection of smart devices including iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and the Apple Watch Series 2.
Also, the shipping dates for these cool devices are slipping away further, with the new jet black iPhones release dates getting further to 2-6 weeks.
Earlier this week when the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 were announced, the company claimed that pre-orders would begin from September 9th. But Apple has just recently made some sudden changes to its pre-order system; now all interested parties and customers can start skirmishing over what will most probably be limited stock of all the new devices.
Hence, customers can now begin placing their pre-orders for both iPhone 7/7 Plus. Many new and renowned mobile carriers like Verizon and AT&T are all accepting pre-orders for Apple this year.
According to the latest news, the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 will be publicly available on September 16th. Moreover, like the previous year, customers who pre-ordered early on will get the benefit of picking up or receiving delivery of their device on the day of the official launch.
It’s always pretty much unpredictable when it comes to how pre-orders would work out for Apple, because sometimes the stock lasts all day, and sometimes it vanishes within just an hour. So nothing can be said about pre-orders this year.
Normally it happens that when Apple puts forward a pre-order system on the back of an exceptionally popular media event for any of its devices, the demand for that particular device is likely to prevail over the inventory levels of the hardware. That is why the same is expected this time too.
Apple claims that it wouldn’t reveal sales numbers from the pre-order sales from opening weekend like it did earlier. The company has also claimed that it expects the new iPhones to “sell out” and that the launch will not be presided over demand, instead it will be governed by supply.
As part of the new pre-order system, these new devices will be available initially to customers located in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, UK, USA, UAE, and other countries that come under the category of wave-1 launch countries.
iPhone 7/7 Plus and Apple Watch Series 2 customers living in the regions mentioned above will have access to a device that would possess an enhanced camera, along with a re-designed outer shell and a Force Touch home button (non-mechanical). They will also get the latest A10 Fusion quad-core processor, accompanied with a 3GB RAM for delivering out-of-the-world performance. For the unlocked iPhone 7 32 GB, prices in the USA will start from $649, and for the unlocked iPhone 7 Plus 32 GB, it would be $769.
Shipping of these new devices will start from September 16th, Friday. However, the shipping and delivery will completely and wholly depend upon how rapidly you get your hands into action plus the stock levels at that particular time.
