In an announcement by Sprint, it would seem that they are seeing much higher iPhone 7 and 7 Plus pre-orders than last year. The carrier is boasting that the number of pre-orders for Apple’s new phones are up 375% within the first 3 days compared to last year, which coincidentally enough is pretty much what T-Mobile is claiming as well.
According to Sprint’s CEO Marcelo Claure, “It’s clear that Sprint customers want to get the most out of the incredible iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and know there’s no better place for this than Sprint. No other carrier can match the value Sprint offers iPhone customers. With Unlimited Freedom and also 50% Off, as well as innovative programs such as iPhone Forever, we can meet any customer’s needs.”
Earlier this year, Apple for the first time ever reported a drop in iPhone sales. We guess you could attribute it to the market having hit maturity, although some had hoped that this year’s iPhone would sport a brand new design and revitalize those sales, and while the redesigned iPhone is rumored for 2017, it does sound like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are holding up pretty well.
