iPhone 7, Apple Watch 2 release date and prices revealed for South Africa

At the beginning of the month Apple held their annual iPhone press conference, where both the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 were revealed. As per usual with Apple, the devices all went on sale just a week later in major regions. South Africa still isn’t cool enough to crack that initial wave list, but every year the wait seems like it’s getting shorter. Nearly a month after the first release, both the Apple Watch Series 2 and iPhone 7 will arrive on local shores.

First up, the iPhone 7. It’s going to be available in iStores Stores countrywide on October 14th (two weeks from today), and will be accompanied by a hefty price. Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cash prices are a little staggering, only offset but the cash-back offer the Apple Store features for your old iPhone. Should you be willing to part with it, Apple will knock off a few bucks on your iPhone 7 purchase – which really isn’t too bad.
