According to 9to5mac, Apple is signing deals with new carriers worldwide and among them Alfa in Lebanon. Alfa’s CEO Marwan Hayek confirmed it in a tweet that iPhone will be soon officially released in Lebanon.
That’s definitely good news but we still have to see whether Alfa (and maybe Touch later) will offer reasonable prices and plans. I will try to figure out how soon the launch will be for those interested.
Update: I was told the launch will probably take place by end of March.
Yesterday, when I upgraded to iOS 7.1, I was asked to “update carrier settings.”
It’s the first time I get such a prompt.
Me too, and I was on Touch
so it’s not related to that story
