Seven eleven stores in Japan will start selling official iPhone accessories from Apple next week. Seven-Eleven has over 20,000 outlets in Japan, so this will increase the availability of official iPhone accessories in the region.
The items stocked by the store consist of 9 different items, including different lengths of lightning cables, earpods and 5w USB adapter, lightning to 3.5mm adapter, and more. The first rollout will see that accessories are available in seven eleven stores in central Japan, including Tokyo, Hokkaido, Nagano Prefecture and Yamanashi Prefecture from May 22.
By selling Apple accessories at Seven-Eleven across the country, we will give many customers the opportunity to buy at "whenever they want", "immediately" and "nearby" stores.
iPhones are incredibly popular in Japan, and this move will have a positive impact on accessory sales in the region. The industry factor will mean that despite better third-party options, customers will only buy a lightning cable or earpods from their nearest Seven Eleven store when they need one.[Via Seven Eleven]
