Apple’s iPhone 7 went up for pre-order on the 9th of September and mobile carrier O2 started taking pre-orders on the same day.
The iPhone 7 launched last Friday the 16th of September and many people with O2 who pre-ordered their device did not get their handset on launch day.
Some customers who pre-ordered the handset from O2 have started to receive their device, whilst others are still waiting, I actually received my pre-order yesterday, some other customers have not been so lucky, you can see some tweets below.

O2 have said previously that the reason for the delay is due to a ‘market wide delay’ this means that Apple is still catching up with the demand for the handsets.
