This Carrier Lets You Reserve Apple's iPhone 8
Apple iPhone 8 is expected to greet the light of day within a few weeks from now. Interestingly, ahead of its release, a carrier named Telekom in Germany is allowing subscribers to reserve a place in line for the next iPhone and other highly anticipated phones, like the Galaxy Note 8 before the manufacturers make them official.
According to 9to5Mac, Germany's Telekom has put up a new page on its official website that allows users to secure a spot in a queue to order Apple iPhone 8 that hasn't been released or even announced yet. The buyers from Germany can now reserve the upcoming and unannounced iPhone 8 and will have the chance to be the first batch of users after the launch.
The rules to reserve the iPhone 8 are simple. A Telekom subscriber has to go to the Reservation Ticket Page on the Telekom website and has to register to receive a ticket that can be redeemed later. However, for existing Telekom subscribers it's a bit difficult as they will have to renew their contract in order to reserve the smartphone, as reported by Phone Arena.
When the iPhone 8 release might actually become a reality, is still a million dollar question. Though there are a number of reports claiming that the iPhone 8 launch might be pushed back to October or even November, a recent rumor suggests that the upcoming iPhone will launch alongside the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus this fall.
The upcoming iPhone 8, according to KGI security chief analyst Ming Chi Kuo, will be available to grab in limited quantities. Specifically, initial supply of the iPhone 8 might be only 3-5 million units for the quarter.
