Due to time zone differences, Apple customers in Australia and New Zealand are beginning to receive their iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus’.
It’s roughly 9:00 AM in New Zealand right now, so customers who pre-ordered an iPhone 7, 7 Plus, or an Apple Watch Series 2 have begun receiving their devices and are sharing photos of them on social media. Australian deliveries will begin soon.
As September 16 begins to roll around, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, the UK, US Virgin Islands and the US.
Retail locations in said countries will open at 8:00 AM local time, letting customers pick up a reserved phone or purchase phones via walk-in. However, customers who didn’t pre-order should not expect to purchase an iPhone 7 Plus, or an iPhone 7 in Jet black as Apple has said they will not have any stock of those models.
As for us in the United States, we have about 15 hours at the earliest (EST) before we can pick up our new iPhones.
