Ooredoo has announced that its iPhone 12 series collection event, held at Khalifa International Stadium from midnight until 3am on Friday, saw a huge turnout.
Thousands of iPhone 12 devices were sold via Ooredoo’s pre-order option, with stock selling out soon after pre-orders opened, the company said in a statement.
To ensure the safety of all involved, the event’s tagline was ‘Collect your device from the safety of your car’ and staff distributed customers’ new iPhones directly to their vehicles, the statement noted.
