iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus Break the Pre-Order Record Barrier, According to T-Mobile
When you have a deal as superb as the one T-Mobile was offering you for a free iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, is there any wonder why the pre-order tally would scale to such heights? According to the latest statistic, pre-orders of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have shot through the roof, making the smartphone duo even more popular than iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
T-Mobile Says Pre-Orders of iPhone 7 Are Four Times More Than the iPhone 6
T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere declared demand for the iPhone 7, stating that the pre-orders of the smartphone are four times that of the iPhone 6. According to the CEO, the matte black iPhone 7 has been the most popular color option among pre-orders through his company.
“The first four days of the iPhone 7 launch are by far the biggest ever for T-Mobile.”
Looks like the company’s strategy worked out well in its favor. To bring you up to speed, you were granted a golden chance to get yourself a free iPhone 7 if you traded in your previous iPhone. However, it’s not going to be just any ordinary iPhone, but either an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s or an iPhone 6s Plus that you’d have to trade-in. There were also certain conditions that you would have to make sure were in the green zone if you would get actually yourself a free iPhone 7:
- Phones must be in working condition, not have water damage, and can’t have a shattered screen.
- You have to agree to a 24-month finance plan.
- Only the 32GB version of the iPhone 7 is going to be given to you free of charge. However, if you want to get yourself an iPhone 7 Plus, getting the 32GB model would cost you only $120, while trading in your existing iPhone and getting a 128GB iPhone 7 will cost you $100.
Looking at the pre-order scaling, we have to say that T-Mobile have had a fantastic run so far. However, the improvements in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are also a high contributing factor for this new record.
