IPhone 8, 8 Plus go on sale in Japan

IPhone 8, 8 Plus go on sale in Japan

Sydney was among the first cities to get the phones, but it seems like people are not as excited about the newest phones this year as they were in previous launches. However, hours after both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were available, there were not many takers, and there was still stock left with September 22 delivery dates available either online or for in-store pickup, notes MacRumors.

This week we surveyed 388 consumers in the USA across all demographics and found that of those planning to buy an iPhone in the next year, 25% plan on purchasing an iPhone X and 39% and iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The launch will be supported by high-decibel events and marketing activations through various media vehicles.

In China, a loyal Apple customer said the improved camera was one of the reasons she purchased the new device. Apple's shares have fallen recently because of concerns about early iPhone 8 sales.

On the feature front, however, the iPhone 8 does not have much to offer, he added. Critics have said the 8 and 8 Plus have only minor improvements over the iPhone 7 launched past year, including wireless charging-plus a higher USA starting price of $699 for the iPhone 8 and $799 for the 8 Plus.

Zuckerberg noted that most ads on Facebook are bought without an advertiser "ever speaking to anyone at Facebook". When someone buys political ads on TV, they're required to disclose who paid for them.

At the other end of the country in Beijing, customers at the Apple Store in the capital's popular upscale shopping area Sanlitun were also thin in the ground on launch day. The Company's products and services include iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod, Apple TV, a portfolio of consumer and professional software applications, the iOS and OS X operating systems, iCloud, and a variety of accessory, service and support offerings.

"It's normal. It's not all that different from the 7", said Duan Mengliang, a 25-year-old hotel worker.

Apple's flagship iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have launched in the United Kingdom this morning to a luke-warm reception as Apple fans hold out for the new iPhone X.
