Apple launched iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus early last month and since then, some regions across the globe have yet to see these phones in flesh.
Initially, the iPhone 7 was released in 28 countries – this was on September 16th. Of course, these included the likes of U.S., UK, and Canada, however, is it just at the beginning of this month that Apple took the two phones to India. Apple avails its devices to markets based on demand and as it seems, the regions getting it now are not heavy consumers of the iPhone.
Beginning October 20th, there will be a number of countries that will now be able to access the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This starts with Europe’s Israel and Africa’s Egypt. The following day will see Apple begin sales of the phones in Kore and South America’s Colombia. Apparently, Korea and Colombia will not only get the new phones, but also the latest Apple Watch Series 2.
Apple has previously confirmed that the iPhone 7 will be heading to Israel on October 20th and it seems, the company will keep its word. The countries that will be joining Korea and Colombia on commencing sales on October 21st include Thailand, Mauritius, Morocco, Madagascar, and Uganda. Another group will follow beginning October 28th and this will include the likes of Moldova, Cameroun, Senegal, Botswana, Mozambique, and Kenya.
Just recently, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus went live in Malaysia, Turkey and Macau, among other regions, however, like the latest additions, not all of these places will also be getting the Apple Watch Series 2.
On other matters, Apple is expected to announce a refreshed MacBook Pro 2016 alongside a new MacBook Air before the end of this month, probably after holding its fiscal Q4 earnings event. This event was initially scheduled for October 27th but was moved back to October 25th due to clashing schedules. This has led to the speculation that the MacBook Pro 2016 launch event could be held on October 27th. But of course, these are just rumors.
