Apple’s flagship store in Nigeria, iStore, on Thursday, said companies in the country were fast adopting Mac computers, MacBook laptops and iPhones as official gadgets for their employees.
The firm stated this as part of activities to mark its fifth year anniversary in Nigeria and the formal unveiling of Apple’s new devices – iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The iStore Manager, Omokolapo Agunloye, told our correspondent that the development was as a result of the efficiency that employees derived from Apple products during work hours.
He said, “In the last one year we have seen a heavy surge in the demand for our products. Upon investigation, we discovered from companies, especially those in the business of making films, media, marketing and Information Technology, that their employees consistently requested for the products.
“Their argument was that it made their work very easy and faster and improved task delivery time. More so, you will discover that it has become the choice work tool for entrepreneurs who can afford it.”
Meanwhile, he said as part of the fifth year anniversary, the firm had opened a new iStore at Mega Plaza, Victoria Island, Lagos, aside the already existing iStore in Ikeja.
Agunloye said iStore was gifting its customers a Free Extended Warranty for two Apple products when upgrading to the new iPhone, adding that the newly-unveiled devices were already available in the country.
He said iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus belonged to the new generation of mobile devices, featuring a new glass and aluminum design in three beautiful finishes – space gray, silver and a new gold.
“It is made with the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, Retina HD displays, A11 Bionic chip and is designed for the ultimate augmented experience,” the iStore manager said.
The firm had earlier stated that the iCare Extended Warranty Bundle entitled a customer to one extra year of warranty on the new iPhone, and another on an existing Apple product that was purchased in the last 12 months and still under its original 12-month Apple warranty.
