I wasn’t expecting the new iPhones to be available that soon in the Middle East but according to Apple’s UAE store, they will be available to order starting September 27th, a week after the official release date. The iPhone6 starts at 700$ and the iPhone6 Plus at around 815$.
As far as Lebanon is concerned, you can expect the iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus to be over $1000 in the first few weeks, so I recommend you wait a little bit till prices settle.
I followed the #AppleLive event yesterday and it’s great to finally see an iPhone with a big screen at last. The Apple Watch is nice but it looks big to be honest and expensive at 350$. There’s even more expensive edition that has a watch case crafted from 18-karat gold. Something tells me this edition will sell big in the Middle East.
If you are an Apple fan, my friend Jad posted everything you need to know about Apple’s new products [Here]. You can also check AbsoluteGeek’s post [Here].
i heard iPhones in UAE have Facetime disabled. Can you verify this information? I want to see if we can buy them from UAE or not worth it.
A friend of mine bought an iPhone 4 from the UAE it came without face time, it is still without FaceTime even with the latest IOS updates
i bought iphone 4s 3 years ago from lebanon , had the same problem , no facetime
The watch is at 350 in the states so I imagine it will be no less than 800 in Lebanon. It launches early 2015.
