A report out of Taiwan states that as of September 5, Foxconn has shipped out a total of 371,000 units of next generation iPhone devices through customs in Henan province, China. The new iPhones are designated for markets including the US, UK, Netherlands and Italy, according to media reports in China. We reported yesterday that growth of iOS enjoyed the largest leap in the UK for the month of July outpacing the US, so it's no wonder why the UK will be one of the first countries to get the new iPhone 7.
The first batch of 84,700 units of new iPhones passed customs on September 2, said the reports.
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, noted the reports.
Apple launches the iPhone 7 at a live keynote in San Francisco today at 10 a.m. PDT.
