Airtel introduces iPhone 5s in Nigeria

Telecommunications services provider, Airtel Nigeria, has announced a strategic partnership, leading to formal introduction of Apple’s latest in stock iPhone 5s into the Nigeria’s market, reports ITRealms.

Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya who was represented by the Director, Products and Innovations, Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Nitin Anand, told ITRealms that the partnership offers telecoms consumers across the country an opportunity to purchase the iPhones in Airtel showrooms nationwide or from the outlets of its channel/retail partners including Slot.

He also described the partnership with Apple as the coming together of two great brands, maintaining the partnership is a demonstration of Apple’s trust in Airtel and indeed in Nigeria. 

Further, ITRealms gathered that the partnership underscores Airtel’s unwavering commitment to its vision of becoming Nigeria’s number 1 mobile Internet service provider.

“At Airtel Nigeria, we believe that the future of mobile telephony is mobile Internet and so we are repositioning to revolutionize this landscape with innovative value offerings and strategic partnerships,” he said.

Stressing that the partnership with Apple is a glowing testimony to our desire to lead with Internet. Our enviable track record also provides us a leverage to empower more Nigerians to enjoy super-fast Internet services on their devices and mobile phones on the Airtel network,” he said.

Ogunsanya further said that Airtel is currently embarking on a wide-scale expansion, modernization and transformation of its network.

“Our goal is to ensure that telecoms consumers enjoy the best experience on VOICE, VISUAL and VIDEO as they engage and connect with friends and family members as well as transact their businesses on the Airtel network,” he said.

The iPhone 5s is described by telecoms pundits as the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world. iPhone 5s sets a precedent, with an amazing amount of technology in a remarkably thin, light design. It builds on that achievement with Touch ID — a ļ¬ngerprint identity sensor. An A7 chip with 64-bit architecture. An even more impressive iSight camera. And ultrafast LTE wireless.

Customers who wish to purchase the iPhone 5s can also buy the device from the retail outlets of Apple’s official distributor in Nigeria, Core Group Africa (CGA).

The launch of the iPhone 5s held at the Civic Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos and it attracted several telecoms consumers including prominent journalists, select youths, Airtel’s channel partners and other stakeholders within the telecoms value chain.


The launch was graced by the chief executive officer of Slot Nigeria Limited, Nnamdi Ezeigbo, Country Manager, iStore Africa, Mr. Sachin Verma, Director, Products and Innovations, Airtel Nigeria, Nitin Anand and Director, Marketing and Brands, Airtel Nigeria, Mr Obinna Anichie among others.
