Unlike other countries where iPhone is launched at 12 AM midnight, the launch in India will happen 7 PM sharp today.
Apple is all set to launch iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus today at 7 PM. With the pre-orders already available, Flipkart claims that it has received thousands of pre-orders already and is expected to have more in coming days. However, the excitement has crossed the limit with recent reports suggesting that Flipkart's CEO Binny Bansal will personally deliver the first batch of iPhone 7 to select buyer in Bangalore today.
In a statement, the e-commerce website said - "Flipkart CEO Binny Bansal will be one among the delivery executives who will be delivering the iPhone 7 today starting at 7 PM in Bangalore. Who will be first lucky customer who will get the first phone today?"
"Delivery executives are fanning out across key cities in India to surprise several lucky customers at the exact time when the clock strikes seven," read the statement further.
Apple's iPhone 7 will start at Rs 60,000 for 32GB, Rs 70,000 for 128GB and Rs 80,000 for 256GB. On the other hand, iPhone 7 Plus will sell at Rs 72,000 for 32GB, Rs 82,000 for 128GB and Rs 92,000 for 256GB. Also, a lot of websites such as Snapdeal, Tata CLiQ etc. are offering various cash back and launch offers which are not to be missed.
Unlike other countries where iPhone is launched at 12 AM midnight, the launch in India will happen 7 PM sharp today which is strange but it is how it is.
With exploding phones already proving to be a hot potato for Samsung, Apple cannot afford to take any such report lightly.
Purchases from China overtook US purchases on the Apple Store during the third quarter for the first time ever, taking China a step closer to meeting CEO Tim Cook's prediction of becoming the largest market for Apple by 2020.
This is probably the second case of iPhone 7 getting exploded.
Reportedly the device will have USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 ports instead of MagSafe connectors and traditional USB and Thunderbolt 2 ports.
The virtual home button sits neatly at the bottom of the iPhone 7's screen.
Both the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in India from today
The phone is already avaialble for preorder from various retailers.
Yet again this year Apple failed to launch the iPhone 7 in the first round of launch in India and will launching the device on October 7.
If Apple manages to follow this timeline then we might as well see the new MacBook on retail shelves by early November 2016.
Apple's new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus was already available for pre-booking from stores such as iWorld and Unicorn.
