Dubai: A serpentine line of people had formed outside the Apple store in Mall of Emirates in Dubai on Saturday, with customers eager to buy the new iPhone 7 and the bigger iPhone 7 Plus.
Excited customers were already in the queue as early as two hours before the store opened at 8am.
Ahmad Al Hajri from Saudi Arabia was the first person to buy an iPhone 7 in Dubai. He couldn’t contain his excitement.
Like the rest of the customers at the Apple store, Al Hajra had a pre-booking to purchase the device, which was already sold out ahead of the launch date in the UAE.
Customers, however, can still continue to place orders online, with an expected delivery time of around three weeks.
The iPhone 7 is available in the UAE for Dh2,599 (32GB), Dh2,999 (128GB) and Dh3,399 (256GB). The iPhone 7 Plus is available for Dh3,099 (32GB), Dh3,499 (128GB) and Dh3,899 (256GB). More info
