Apple iPhone 7 India launch reportedly slated for September 26, but there is a catch

By September 7th, 2016 AT 7:01 PM

Apple is gearing up to unveil its much-talked-about iPhone 7 in a few hours from now. The event will take place at the Graham Bill Civic Auditorium in San Francisco at 10:30 PM (IST). Until now, a lot of expected specs of the device have been shared online. In one of the latest developments before the launch, a new report has detailed the timeline for the availability of the new iPhones in India.

The report published by Hindustan Times says, that the Apple iPhone 7 will go on sale in India from September 26. It also tips the pricing for the next-gen iPhone, the base variant of the iPhone 7 (32GB) will start at Rs. 63,000. But we can’t believe the report entirely as there are various factors that Apple considers before bringing the device to any country. If India is among the first countries to get the device, which might be possible as Tim Cook has been giving rapt attention to the Indian smartphone market.

Hindustan Times quoted its source saying,“We are already preparing for the launch of iPhones as the shipping dates from the US is expected to be somewhere between September 15 to 19. We should have the phones by September 26.”

We doubt the report to some extent as Apple has a particular way of doing things. Going by its past launches, the company has never launched its product on a Monday. Also, if India is among the first nations to get the device, then it will not have a separate date from other countries in the cluster. Other reports suggest that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are most likely to go on sale in the US on September 23.

Apple’s first preference countries have always been the US, Canada, China, Australia and other major European countries. In these countries, Apple also sells its devices through carrier exclusive partnerships. It is not easy to believe that Apple will change its dynamics for India. Also, Apple has always launched its devices before Diwali to mint more sales. Regarding pricing too we can’t just believe the report as the tipped iPhone 7 price is in line with iPhone 6s 16GB variant’s launch price, last year.

In the end, rumors will be rumors. So, stay tuned with us for more info on the iPhone 7. In a few hours from now, we will let you know about everything that you need to know about the iPhone 7. For those who want to watch live stream of Apple’s launch event – you can follow this link.

LG’s V20 with the double display is the much better option than this as Apple killed everything the 3.5mm jack, 16GB internal storage option, and even the Silver color option this is ridiculous.
