iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are in short supply in Russia three weeks after the start of sales
That iPhone 7 sold significantly better than the iPhone 6s, though inferior to the popularity of the iPhone 6, we already know. If you believe the delivery time in the Apple Store, the company fails to provide smartphones to all comers. Anyway, three weeks after the beginning of the sales demand exceeds supply, and to overcome the shortage of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the company has not yet succeeded.
In the Russian Apple online store is now available not for all models. Within 2-3 weeks after ordering promise to deliver iPhone 7 silver, and gold body colors and colors “rose gold”. Black and “black onyx” have to wait 3-5 weeks. No better situation with the iPhone 7 Plus: 3-4 weeks will have to wait for all models except “black onyx”. The latter will be available until 6-8 weeks, that is two months. In other Russian online shops most of the new smartphones are also sold out.
The restriction imposed by Apple on the supply of new gadgets in Russia, has led to excessive demand for the iPhone 7 in stores. Due to the lack of the most popular colors for the first day the company sold “only” 16,000 new smartphones. Over the same period last year were sold in Russia about 20 000 iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
The most popular were models of color “black onyx” in the configuration 128 and 256 GB, while Apple, according to media reports, has shipped to Russia mostly the device in versions of 32 GB and unpopular colors (silver, gold and rose gold).
Knowledgeable anonymous sources report that Apple has decided to increase the production of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus due to the high demand. The situation with the supply of “sevens” promises to improve by the end of this or beginning of next month.
