Since Apple unveiled the iPhone X on the 12 September 2017 at an event at the Steve Jobs Theatre, located at the new Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California, we’ve been left with little to no information on when the device would be releasing on our shore.
Apple has confirmed that we can expect the iPhone X to be launched in South Africa on the 24 November 2017.
Following successful launches in over 50 countries already across North America, numerous European nations, and a few countries across Asia and Australasia. Apple has added to this list with 12 more countries set to launch on the same date, which includes Albania, Bosnia, Cambodia, Kosovo, Macau, Macedonia, Malaysia, Montenegro, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand and Turkey.
While the launch coincides with this year’s Black Friday, which has become more of a calendar feature in South Africa of late, customers shouldn’t expect any discount deals as a tie-in. There may, however, be a few deals from the various retailers and providers (including the MyiStore) on launch day with add-ons such as data, etc.
Customers should still expect a price above the R20,000 mark, as well as a contract price around R999 per month for the iPhone X.
