Those planning to pre-order iPhone 7 online, may have missed the bus. All the models of iPhone 7 plus are out of stock for online pre-order while just a few models of iPhone 7 are up for grab now in Qatar.

Although latest iPhones are not available for online booking, customers can still pre-order them on electronic showrooms and shops.

The craze for Apple’s new models can be gauged from the fact that online booking was started couple of days ago. Ooredoo and Vodafone had started taking pre-orders of iPhone 7 and 7 plus from customers from Friday.

“Vodafone’s customers were very quick to place their pre-orders for the latest iPhone 7 that is now out of stock,” Vodafone Qatar told The Peninsula. Ooredoo said it will arrange additional stock of iPhones in the coming days to meet customers’ demand.

“Customers have been able to order their iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus from Ooredoo since Friday, 16 September and we have seen a strong early response. People are very excited about the opportunity to use this powerful phone on our powerful Ooredoo Supernet,” An Ooredoo spokesperson told The Peninsula. “For customers who are encountering an ‘Out of Stock’ message, Ooredoo will be receiving additional stock in the coming days, so we encourage them to check back later in the week,” added the spokesperson.

Many customers, who were unable to pre-book iPhones online, took to social media to express their frustration. “I was late 3 min, it took only 3 min to get out of stock ! restock please @OoredooQatar” tweeted Fadi Soufi on his twitter handle ‏@Fadi_Soufi

However, there were many who are able to pre-order latest iPhones and they rushed to social media to announce this feat. “Just ordered the #iPhone7Plus from @OoredooQatar!” tweeted Shiva Singh.

Those who want to pre-order iPhones can do it by visiting showrooms or shops. “Now pre-order your iPhone 7 at iSpace Lagoona Mall and Al Maha center and have it on September 23rd by midnight,” wrote iSpace on its facebook page.

The price of iPhone 7 starts with QR2,799 and goes up to QR3,999 for 7 plus 256GB version. The devices will officially go on sale in Qatar starting from September 24. The California headquartered tech giant had released the next generation of the iPhone — the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus — on September 7. (Source)
