Apple is going to launch the new iPhones i.e. the iPhone 7 & the iPhone 7 Plus on September 7th. The company will be launching the devices on that day and it will be available to purchase soon after that. It is expected that the device is going to get an excellent response as the last year’s variant was not much of a change from the iPhone 6. So it is reported that the company is expecting some good sales figures.

According to some reports, Foxconn has now begun shipping to the iPhone 7 & the iPhone 7 Plus units to the global market. Yes, the first batch of the Apple’s new iPhones was already shipped. The delivery was confirmed by the source from Xinzheng Comprehensive Bonded Zone operation ports. It is reported that a total of 84,700 units weighing about 49.69 tonnes was shipped. Sounds crazy right? weighing smartphone shipments in tonnes. Anyway, now we have more reports claiming that several more trips are to be done with a total of 371,000 units weighing about 211.50 tonnes.

It is reported that these shipments are mainly being shipped to the United States, Britain, the Netherlands, Italy and other places. Looking at all these reports, it looks like the company is getting ready for a big launch. As mentioned earlier, the iPhone 7 might actually receive a huge response as the last year’s variant was not much of a change. Also, the recent Galaxy Note 7 recall will play a major role here, as many will cancel their Galaxy Note 7 orders or return it back and go for the new iPhones. Well, nothing is confirmed yet and we don’t have any exact figures to report just yet. All these are just speculations, however, we should be getting to know the exact scenario soon. So stay tuned to Phone Radar for more detailed info on this.
