First iPhone 7 Shipments On the Way to U.S. and U.K.

First iPhone 7 shipments are now going out worldwide in preparation for launch, according to a report Wednesday by Taiwanese trade publication DigiTimes. Apple’s supply chain is now loading up with first iPhone 7 shipments, sources entrenched in Apple’s supply chain told the publication.

Two days ago, iPhone manufacturer Foxconn reportedly shipped 371,000 units of the iPhone 7 to retailers and carriers in Italy, the Netherlands, the United States and the United Kingdom.

“Customs officers in Zhengzhou, Henan have taken a series of measures and also stepped up cooperation with Foxconn and 13 shipping agent companies aiming to improve customs procedures and shorten logistics times,” adds DigiTimes.

The reports claim 84,700 units were in the first batch of shipments, which passed through customs on September 2. Foxconn has continued to ship more and more since then, and that’s not going to stop anytime soon.

An Italian outlet just posted a photograph of alleged iPhone 7 box design, with the sources saying the new phones should be available in Italy through carriers TIM, 3 and Vodafone beginning September 16.
