Apple releases the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in 30 more countries
The Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus were launched in 30 more countries this weekend, adding to the 24 countries that received the devices in the first wave of their release. That was back on September 16th. The countries in the second wave include markets in Europe and the Middle East.
The complete list includes countries like Andorra, Bahrain, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Greenland, Guernsey, Hungary, Iceland, Isle of Man, Jersey, Kosovo, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Maldives, Malta, Monaco, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
While certain models sold out in the U.S. on launch day, Apple is said to be working hard to replenish supplies of the iPhone 7 Plus and the Jet Black model of both versions. Despite what appears to be strong demand for the new phones, a report disseminated this past week by GfK Resesarch said that based on sales channels, launch weekend turnover was actually down 25% year-over-year.
Apple also launched this weekend the Hermes edition of the Apple Watch Series 2. Available in physical stores and online, the timepiece can be purchased in seven versions that feature handcrafted leather wristbands. The price range for the Apple Watch Series 2 Hermes edition runs between $1,150 and $1,500 in the U.S.
Besides the U.S., the Apple Watch Series 2 Hermes edition can be bought in Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Macau, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, and the UK.
