The latest from Apple – iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have finally paved their way to Pakistan after almost two months of their international exposure. The two leading telecom operators – Ufone and Telenor have announced to make iPhone 7 officially available in Pakistan starting from November 11. Jazz and Warid have also added a page on their websites showing intentions to launch iPhone 7 in Pakistan very soon.

Ufone have updated their website allocating special page for iPhone 7 providing opportunity for customers to pre order their iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Although Ufone mentions the start of pre order booking from November 4 but you can fill up the form from today.

On the other hand Telenor has only shown an image of iPhone 7 on their homepage with a notation of “coming soon”. We expect that Telenor will also bring iPhone 7 in Pakistan on the same day as Ufone announced.

It is not the first time when telecom operators have offered the pre order booking of iPhone. Back in 2015, Ufone, Zong, Mobilink and Telenor announced the pre-ordering of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with different voice and data bundles.

We expect that the other networks (Jazz, Warid and Zong) will also soon announce the pre order booking of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Keep visiting us as we’ll let you know as and when any breakthrough occurs from your favourite telecom operator in this regard.
