Deliveroo will deliver to Irish customers queueing up for the new iPhone XS
Will you be queueing up for the new iPhone?
The new phone, which is expected to fetch €1,179 (or €1,279 for the Max version), will launch in stores on September 21.
At the time of writing, all variants of both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have sold out on the Apple website, meaning that customers will have to queue up in real life. What a bummer.
But luckily for those who are planning to line up in order to get their hands on Apple's latest release, Deliveroo has announced that it will be delivering to iPhone queues — so customers can get their food while waiting in line.
Truly what a wild ride capitalism is.
In a statement released by the company on Thursday, Deliveroo said: "Following last year’s release which saw the iPhone X nearly sell-out across Ireland at pre-order, Deliveroo is ensuring that those who decide to queue and buy in store won’t go hungry.
"Customers can order food from their favourite restaurants near Apple retailers and have it delivered to them directly in the queue, ensuring they don’t lose their place in line. Whether you fancy a smoothie, a full Irish or some poached eggs, Deliveroo has it covered."
Deliveroo is providing the service in 11 other countries as well as Ireland: Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
