New iPhones to reach Qatar by Sept 28

On Wednesday, Apple announced its latest updates to the iPhone and Apple Watch, adding three new iPhones and a new Apple Watch to its catalog of devices.

You're out of luck, at least if you want one straight from Apple. Moreover, Apple locally assembles iPhone SE and iPhone 6S models in India.

IPhone XR. This is one that makes it hard to decide which phone to get. But this time around, Apple's also ditching the previously included Lightning to 3.5mm dongle, making it even harder to connect your iPhone to legacy accessories like headphones, speakers, or auto stereos.

Getting rid of the headphone jack also allows newer iPhones to be thinner by a few millimeters.
