American software giant Apple’s iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and Apple Watch series 2 went up for preorder on Friday September 9th 2016, in nearly 30 territories around the world.
When it comes to the US, the preorder process started a bit late for few customers, but the process is running smoothly on Apple’s own website, the Apple store app for iOS and respective online stores of its partners.
Customers now could place their pre-orders for both devices. As usual carriers such as AT & T and Verizon are accepting orders, as well as newcomers Best Buy and Target this year.
iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 would be officially available from September 16 and it is always bit tough to predict how exactly these pre-orders will go, as some years pre-order stock has lasted entire day and other years it was gone just within an hour or two, according to a TECH CRUNCH report.
The advantage of ordering from Apple store directly is that the company offers a myriad of iPhone 7 configurations to choose from. Customers could select from every color of iPhone, including jet black, silver, gold and rose gold. Also, customers could choose any of the iPhone 7s storage capacities – 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB.
But Apple decided not to reveal sales numbers from opening weekend and pre-order sales as it done in the past.
Also, the company has updated Series 1 with its new dual-core chip and dropped the starting price to $269.
