The iPhone 7 pre-orders are open on Airtel


The Smartphone network has opened up pre-orders for those that wish to own Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 7. This gives Ugandans a chance to own the phone before anyone else lands their hands on one, given they’re not yet readily available in shops and delearships.

However, Airtel hasn’t disclosed available quantities and in what color so the earlier you place your order, the better.

So far there have been recognised shortages for some models especially those that come in black in some markets, given that, that particular color has been somewhat absent ever since the iPhone 5. It resurfacing is a statement enough that you own an iPhone 7 or 7Plus and so the increased aura it garners.
