In addition, to give wider access to other customers who wished to purchase iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus on the spot, Vodafone this year extended the opening hours of three of its other flagship stores in Mall of Qatar, Landmark and City Center. 

Timed with the launch, Vodafone launched great data offers for both Postpaid and Prepaid customers who purchased iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. At the event, Vodafone announced that all new and existing Vodafone Postpaid customers will enjoy 8GB a month of local data for 3 months with their new iPhone.
