At the end of October in Pakistan, Ufone, and Telenor announced that they would welcome the iPhone 7 onto their networks. This announcement will see both variants, the 7 and 7 Plus, go on sale on these mobile networks. Here’s everything you need to know about the iPhone 7’s price and the installment plans for both networks and more.
How to get an iPhone via Ufone
Unfortunately as far as Ufone is concerned, neither iPhone model is on sale yet. However, you can pre-register for one by going onto the company’s website. Some basic details are all that is required to pre-register, and once the phones become available, you will receive an email. The handsets are expected to be available in most major cities, including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Multan, Peshawar, Quetta, and Sialkot.
Ufone has failed to share pricing information for the iPhone 7 on its network. However, it’s believed that Ufone will be an expensive company to buy from due to the addition of data bundles. Both iPhone 7 variants are expected to be ready for sale by November 11.

Along with Ufone, Telenor has also announced the soon-to-be-available iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets. Like Ufone, it has not revealed the iPhone 7 price or any information related to installment plans. But unlike Ufone, there is no information about pre-registering; there is no mention of the iPhone 7 even on its website.
Standard Chartered and the iPhone 7 Price
Unusual as it may seem, it takes a bank for us to find our first iPhone 7 price in Pakistan. Standard Chartered is offering the iPhone 7 on what it calls “affordable” installment plans. This is an easy way to pay for the new iPhone without spending too much money.

Lahore Centre installment plans
While it’s not a bank or an official mobile network, Lahore Centre, the home electrical retailer, has the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 price on the retailer’s website does differ depending on which model and color you want, starting with the 32GB iPhone 7 variant, which costs PKRs 87,900,00 with an installment plan of 11,800 per month.
The 32GB iPhone 7 Plus starts at PKRs 105,000 and costs 13,000 per month. The iPhone price tops out with the black 128GB 7 Plus at 129,900 and 18,300 per month installment cost.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
Both of the new iPhone models come with the A10 Fusion chip. This chip provides up to 40% faster performance when compared to the iPhone 6s Plus and 6s. Additionally, Apple has completely redesigned the camera on both handsets, with the iPhone 7 carrying a 12MP rear sensor and the 7 Plus dual 12MP rear sensors.
While they’re both excellent cameras, the 7 Plus benefits from one wide-angle and one telephoto sensor, meaning that not only does it have 2x optical zoom but also a digital zoom of 10x an iPhone first. If you throw in the True Tone flash, wide color capture, and body and face detection, it’s a great camera.
