Fifth-Wave iPhone 7 Launch Kicks Off In New Countries Starting October 20
If you live in a country that is still waiting for the iPhone 7 or Apple Watch Series 2 to go on sale, then you may want to get your calendar out, because Apple has today announced a host of new release dates for both of the aforementioned devices, and yours may just be on the list.
Starting with October 20th, both Israel and Egypt will see the iPhone 7 go on sale for the first time, while the 21st will see Korea and Columbia receive both the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2. The final batch of countries announced sees Botswana, Kenya and Senegal amongst those who will see the iPhone 7 land on their shores on October 28th.
This new round of release dates obviously follows recentwaves that have seen other territories receive Apple’s latest smartphone and smartwatch following their initial release, and with Apple’s fiscal 4th quarter earnings expected to be announced on October 25th, it stands to reason that the company would want to get its big recent releases out into the hands of as many customers as possible.
No sales figures have yet been announced for the iPhone 7, but we expect that will change during the earnings call. It’s also likely that Apple will be one of the smartphone makers to benefit from Samsung’s recent Galaxy Note 7 debacle, with some users expected to have taken the opportunity to give the iPhone 7 Plus a try. With the Galaxy Note 7 now cancelled and the marque likely damaged beyond repair, the iPhone may be the only winner in the affair.
Following is the full rundown of Apple’s fifth-wave of iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 releases. Check to see if your country is on the list.
