A big deal was made about the iPhone X’s $1,000 price tag, but that didn’t deter Apple stans when the handset became available for pre-order this morning.
Immediately following the launch, models for all four carriers in the United States — AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint — were showing shipping estimates of five to six weeks after the phone releases on November 3. In some cases, however, the Apple website claimed the X would be delivered in “2 to 3 weeks.”
Various reports have suggested the X will be in short supply until the end of the year as Apple is struggling to source components for the phone’s new technology, such as the 3D True Depth camera. According to renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, only 2 to 3 million phones would be shipped by launch time.
To cop, Apple recommended using the Apple Store app, but some users who attempted to do so reported various issues, as evidenced below:
If you took the L, your only guarantee of copping now is by camping out at an Apple store or authorized retailer this coming Friday.
If you snagged a phone, you can look forward to cool updates like this.
