The most anticipated phone of the year, the iPhone 7, launched with never ending queues and hurried sales that flouted the miserable expectations that had haunted the possible users of the iPhone 7. There were many who managed to get their hands on the Apple’s latest treat, whilst many had to return back home, reluctantly as the models had sold out pretty fast.
The iPhone 7 was hyped a little too much as it contained an improved camera, no headphone jack and a water resistant body.
People who were likely to buy the new iPhone 7 sets, were too eager to use the jack-free, dual-primary-camera phone, but on Friday it seemed to many that the talks of the new iPhone have suppressed down to the supply issues.
On Thursday, Apple’s shares finished up 3.4 percent at $115.56 as iPhone 7 was already sold out before it could even make it to the stores.
After the Friday’s launch, Apple released a statement saying the iPhone 7 would not be available for walk-in sales. The statement reads, “We sincerely appreciate our customers’ patience as we work hard to get the new iPhone into the hands of everyone who wants one as quickly as possible.”
Because of the overwhelming response from the customers, mobile phone operators in Singapore also found themselves in a situation, letting their consumers know that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7-Plus, both has run out of stock, because of their increasing demand.
Amidst all the iPhone craze that is seen across the world, many experts still say that the demand of this iPhone model is not as strong as it were the last time Apple had launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6-Plus. Though, the current iPhone model has made an exception in the case of its ‘jet black’ color.
