Apple fans in India, your wait just got a bit longer
Apple fans in India will have to wait a bit longer to get hands on the latest iPhones. The company will be launching the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at 7 pm on Friday October 7. This is in break with the tradition that the company has been following since past many years when the latest iPhones went on sale at the stroke of midnight (sharp 12 am).
Initially, several Apple dealers in the country too said that they will start the delivery of the new iPhones at 12 am on October 7. However, it seems new orders came later from the Cupertino giant and all Apple retailers in the country will now start the sales at 7 pm. According to retailers that Gadgets Now spoke to, the warranty of the devices that are activated before 7 pm on October 7 will become void. Seems, this has been done to ensure that eager iPhone buyers don’t pester the dealers to give the smartphones before 7 pm. In fact, many stores in the country are not even likely to get the inventory of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus before afternoon tomorrow.
