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.

It was launched with stocks close to 0. Today there's no way to find a 7+ until at least November, 7 is available only in pink (please, don't "rose gold" me) and only 256 GB version which is way too much for a phone.

257 GB is too much. You don't even get the whole thing anyways. I have uses for mine.

257 is too much but 256 is too little. I need 256.5gb

I don't get how the plus is sold out everywhere but you can walk into any store and get a regular 7 and yes I know the 7 plus is the better device. I ordered 2 plus and have to wait until mid October? It's a bit ridiculous

People are fed up of the mediocre battery life of the regular version. Plus dual cameras and the new software features are really nice. Also big screens are catching up in demand really fast. If I told 2014 me that I am using a 5.5" phone, he would not believe me.

6s has a rather good battery life (it gets me throughout a very busy day without recharging).

Good for you. But the plus models destroy the smaller ones in battery.

Do you really think I care if I end my day with 20% battery or with 40%, as long as I get through the day and I still charge it every night? If the + would have had 2-3 days battery life, I would have chose one too, but an hour more is not worth the hustle of having a bigger, uncomfortable device.

Err, nope. Not really. The only reason the big screen phones are rivalling the small screens is because 1. They put all the juicy features in the big screens (eg iphone 7+ & 7, galaxy s7 edge & s7, nexus 6p & 5X, huawei p9+ & p9, Xperias) 2. Companies hardly make small phones anymore eg LG, OP, Motorola I assure you, let all manufacturers make 2 phones with one 4.7" and another 5.5" with exactly the same features and batteries and make them available then let's see if the big phones will catch on. Its not really hard to figure out.

It's hard to make a smaller phone with exactly the same features and battery.

Actually it is. Tell me a feature amongst the phone examples I mentioned that couldn't have been put in their smaller sibling. Just one.

Same size battery

Where I live NOT A SINGLE store in the whole country has ANY 7 Plus for sale, and very few stores actually have any iPhone 7 AT ALL. They say any 7 plus stock MIGHT come somewhere in October. The above article is misleading as f**k. Apple gave a tiny drop of stock to rest of the world compared to USA making it look like its sold out everywhere. Well I can easily have a phone sold out when Apple gives 50 iphones to a single store.

My heart says buy the iPhone 7+, my mind says the dual camera is mediocre, see what is in store for iPhone 8. After reading the Forbes review, atleast someone highlighted what I have always believed, that the telephoto camera is the worst camera Apple has ever put on a phone. f/2.8, 1/3.5" sensor, No OIS. Even the 1/3" sensor on the main cam is holding back the camera potential. The selfie cam's f/2.2 is also a poor decision. I'll pass on the iPhone 7 series. Hopefully Apple addresses this issues in the next iteration.

Prices are insane this time.....top model of iphone 7 plus with 256GB of storage is selling for about 450kuwaiti dinar,which is about 1450$......i dont know why they have priced this so much higher than US price this time??? Where as there isnt any type of tax here in kuwait........first time i am seeing any phone retailing for above 350KD in kuwait......... Apple has gone mad this year......i think they want their customers to save all their savings so that they can purchase their special 10th edition next year.....
