A year ago, Apple set an opening weekend record by selling 13 million iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus smartphones in just three days. Unfortunately, for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launch, Apple has opted not to release sales stats, but has given an indication as to how desirable the new devices are.
According to a report in Reuters, Apple has completely sold out of 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus in all colours, while the new Jet Black model of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 is out of initial stock. Apple also stated there will be “limited quantities” available for the Rose Gold, Gold, Silver, Black iPhone 7.
Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller, said, “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.”
Apple went live with pre-orders on September 9th and Canadians have the option to purchase directly or through a carrier partner.
Canadian carriers reported earlier this week that iPhone 7 pre-orders have been “very successful.” The new iPhone will officially launch on Friday, September 16th in Canada.
The first iPhone was released in the United States in 2007 and Apple recently announced it sold its billionth iPhone.
