IPhone X pre-orders are 'off the charts', claims Apple

IPhone X pre-orders are 'off the charts', claims Apple

Apple's most advanced iPhone saw its shipping times slip to weeks in the minutes after it first went up for pre-order on Friday morning. Apple typically takes a few weeks or months to reach a balance of supply and demand for major new iPhone launches, and the 8's availability just weeks after its introduction may be a result of users waiting for the higher-end iPhone X. Pacific Time and 3:01 a.m. ET for those Apple devotees who wanted to be some of the first to get their hands on the phone that Apple's CEO Tim Cook called the "biggest leap forward since the original iPhone" at its September 12 launch event.

Apple has announced service pricing for the new iPhone X smartphone and it's not cheap.

Outside of Apple's own channels however, some major stockists, including the U.K.'s vehicle phone Warehouse, were listing the iPhone X as available for delivery November 3. - the day of release.

The iPhone X also features wireless charging, and edge-to-edge display and a new portrait lighting feature that uses artificial intelligence to create facial landmarks and enhance lighting effects on the face.

Apple will charge £999 for the entry-level iPhone X model, which ships with 64GB of storage built-in. If you are buying from an Apple authorised retail stores or e-commerce websites like Amazon or Flipkart, then these plans are not applicable.

Apple ( AAPL ) began taking online preorders for its flagship iPhone X smartphone at 3 a.m.




While that number seems like a lot, Apple sold over 13 million iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models the first weekend that device went on sale in 2015.

Following rumours of low stock available at launch, shipping dates for the Space Grey and Silver iPhone X soon started to slip past launch day, November 3rd. Customers will get up to $300 in credits if they trade in their iPhone 7 Plus or $200 for other eligible devices. Purchasing the extended warranty for $199 on top of the price of the iPhone X will add two more years of protection to the original one-year limited warranty.

Apple has faced several production snags with the iPhone X involving new components, which have pushed back full production for the handset.

You can also use a third-party tool like iStockNow.com to track iPhone X stock at Apple Stores. Maxim Group upped their target price on shares of Apple from $171.00 to $180.00 and gave the company a buy rating in a research report on Monday, June 19th.

The Cupertino-based company said this new iPhone would "set the path for technology for the next decade".
