iStore has announced when South Africans can start pre-ordering and purchasing their new iPhone 14. The devices, which were announced last night alongside the Apple Watch Series 8 and Ultra and the new AirPods Pro 2, will launch in South Africa on 23 September. This marks a week after the phone’s US release date which is great news for those who hate missing out on the excitement around this time of the year.
iStore says that the iPhone 14 range will open for pre-orders starting on 16 September. This includes the entire lineup such as the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Of course, like in previous years, customers can pre-order their new iPhones from iStore on 16 September and also use the new 10-minute self-service Vodacom contract upgrade system to ensure they have their devices registered on their contracts for the launch on 23 September.
iStore says the new self-service upgrade system will give customers the opportunity to upgrade their contracts in 10 minutes. In addition, customers who upgrade can have their new iPhone 14 delivered as fast as the same day in major centres in SA.
You’ll also be able to upgrade and open new lines across MTN and Telkom at iStore. It doesn’t matter where you got your contract done in the first place.
iStore is also offering some incentives to new customers including trade-in offers on older iPhone devices and even Android phones. You can get up to R15,000 cash back when you upgrade your contract or discount towards purchases in-store.
You’ll also get a free extended warranty and screen replacement valued at R1999 when you get your iPhone 14 at iStore.
At the moment we don’t have any pricing details for the new iPhone 14 range in South Africa. However, it should arrive a few days before pre-orders go live. You can visit iStore.co.za to find out more.
