Etisalat was one of the first companies to commence its sale of the new Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The queue outside the iStore in Mall of the Emirates was sight enough to guess the excitement in UAE based Apple fans

Although, it has been a week since the official release of the new iPhones. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus was made available to UAE residents 16th September onwards, before which the pre-books had become a trend across the Emirates. One of the two major telecommunication companies in UAE, Etisalat was one of the first to have put iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus up on the desks of its stores for the residents to grab on but that was not the end of it.

Etisalat, however, has great offers in the store for those who become a part of an initiative that they have introduced, in which costumers can buy the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus on a contract basis that spreads across 18 to 24 months. By subscribing to this contract costumers can avail the benefits of free upgrade every year. What’s even better is that, subscribers can get their iPhone exchanged in return for the ones which will be new in the market, as and when they arrive.

“We are just as excited about the launch of the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices as our customers in the UAE. Etisalat customers will be able to enjoy the experience of the iPhone 7 at the same time as Apple’s global markets. We are also proud to be the first to announce the ‘iPhone for Life’ programme in the country giving our subscribers the privilege to upgrade to the latest iPhone for free every year.” said Etisalat’s Chief Consumer Officer, Khalid Elkhouly.

Those who subscribed to the same contract at the time of release of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, will be able to renew their subscription for the new iPhones by October 10 2016. These subscribers are also eligible for free upgrade until the first 12 months from the time they sign the contract.


Etisalat stores were not the only one which had to receive one costumer after another. The line at Mall of the Emirates, iStore was decorated with a huge line of eager Apple fans, just waiting to get their hands of the new iPhones. The residents queued through out the night in front of the the store.
