The problem of supplies of iPhone 7 Plus
iPhone 7 Plus is considered the most serious competitor to the Galaxy Note 7. The demand for it far exceeds supply. Customers that have placed orders for the iPhone 7 Plus on the Apple website, received notification that they will have to wait for delivery of the smartphone to eight weeks, especially if they chose a new color scheme Jet Black.
According to observations by research firm Goldman Sachs, the delay in obtaining the iPhone 7 Plus is an average of 4-5 weeks for a model Jet Black — 7-8 weeks, and this trend is not quenched.
