The start of sales of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in Russia was no less colorful than that of previous generations. Despite the fact that at this time, the Resellers do not have to do events night show, the number of those wishing to buy a brand new iPhone hasn’t diminished.
At the time of this writing, most models of the iPhone 7 was available for delivery after ordering on the Apple website within 1-3 business days. Those who wanted a model in silver or gold color, certainly with the morning ordered, a desired device without Queuing. However, many buyers were interested in a version in black color and rare “black onyx”, which Apple promises to deliver in only 3-5 weeks. The same applies to all versions of iPhone 7 Plus. Another Hello to analysts” who believe that the iPhone in Russia is necessary to nobody.
So everyone went to by the official Resellers. Among the latter, all of us are familiar of “M. Video”, “Svyaznoy”, “Euroset” shops of cellular operators “the big three”, re:Store and others.

Formed, since the Gum was almost the only one where all the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, including the color “black onyx”. That though as-that to organize the crowd, re:Store started to give buyers of number plates in the form of bracelets.
In TSUM, as reported to us by eye-witnesses, such a rush there, although the store gives each customer the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus a gift card for 100 thousand rubles. Perhaps because a map can only be paid up to 10 % of the value of any goods in the Department store.
Interestingly, in other cities of Russia such is not observed, because the smartphone is not available. Source among Resellers reported edition AppleInsider.ru that in Russia, there were imported only a few thousand iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Most of them have not left the territory of Moscow.
