According to T-Mobile, the pre-orders for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have completely shattered the sales records as the orders have gone four times higher than those of iPhone 6, which had touched a milestone a couple of years ago.
“iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are a home run at T-Mobile. Pre-orders for Apple’s latest have already shattered sales records in the first four days-up more than 4x over the smash-hit iPhone 6. And Friday set a single-day sales record for any smartphone ever in T-Mobile US history.” – 9to5Mac.com
Sprint has also reported that the pre-orders for iPhone 7 have been whopping almost four times as many this year as against those of the 6s.
As per Sprint, the pre-orders are up more than 375% over three days as compared to those of the previous year.
Due to lack of new design, many had almost written off iPhone 7. Besides, the endless rumors as, well as leaked images had left very little to the imagination.
In the backdrop of the huge decline in iPhone sales in the previous two quarters, the future had looked very bleak for the smartphone.
The shipping dates for most of the models of the new iPhones have slipped to November or even later.
The news must be music to Apple, which desperately wanted the iPhone 7 to do well.
