4 Reasons to Pre-Order the iPhone 7 & 3 Reasons Not To
In a few short hours, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus pre-orders will begin in the United States and countries around the world. And while some of you will want to put in an iPhone 7 pre-order, others might want to wait.
Earlier this week, Apple took the stage and announced a slew of new products and dates including a new Apple Watch, the iOS 10 release date for iPhone and iPad, and the brand new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The new iPhones arrive on September 16th and will replace the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as the company’s flagship options.
If you want to order a device before the iPhone 7 release date you can do that starting September 9th at 12:01AM Pacific. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus pre-orders will go live via Apple, carrier websites and various retailers in the U.S.
iPhone 7 pre-orders will be open all the way up until the iPhone 7 release date though there’s a good chance some models will sell out before then. If you have a certain model in mind, you might want to put in a pre-order.
While many of you will want to stay up and put in an early order, others might be better off waiting a few days, or maybe a few weeks, before buying an iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Pre-Order If You Want the iPhone 7 ASAP1 / 7
If you need a new phone immediately and you’ve been waiting for the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus to arrive, you’ll want to put in an pre-order ahead of the iPhone 7 release date on September 16th.
We haven’t heard about any supply chain issues but new iPhones typically sell out within a few hours of going on sale. Some models, at least.
We expect to see some iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus shipping dates get pushed back soon after the start of pre-orders so if you want your device on September 16th or shortly thereafter, you’ll want to put in an order through Apple or someone else as soon as you possibly can.
If you don’t, you could be waiting until October for your new device.
