Beyond the Box, open_source by Beyond the Box, and Digital Walker on Friday, October 20, marked the arrival of the latest and greatest iPhone 15 series at the strike of midnight with an exciting activity-filled event at its Uptown Mall, BGC, and Open_Source ASEANA Parqual branches, with the former event being live-streamed to its satellite locations at Robinsons Ermita and Digital Walker Power Plant Mall.

Countdown to 15

Prizes all around
Not only were there esteemed guests, but the night was also packed with interactive games across all locations that tapped into the audience’s knowledge about Apple and iPhones, as well as their creativity. Plus, everyone in the lines was automatically included in the raffle draw, where lucky winners received exclusive prizes from Beyond the Box, open_source, and Digital Walker.
In comes 15.
At midnight, all locations came alive as the stores unveiled a new look in celebration of the new iPhone 15 series. When the curtains fell, the customers went in to get their hands on the highly anticipated upgrade. The new iPhone 15 series features a new design with a durable, color-infused back glass and a new contoured edge, and with its aerospace-grade titanium design that’s strong yet lightweight. The iPhone 15 Pro is by far the lightest Pro model ever with next-generation performance powered by the A17 Pro chip. When it comes to camera developments, the full lineup brings mobile photography to a whole new level with better low-light performance, and a new 5x Telephoto camera — available exclusively on iPhone 15 Pro Max – to capture more than ever before.
