IPhone X preorders start -- and end -- quickly

Rogers iPhone X Pre-Orders Try to Launch But Website Goes Down iPhone X preorders sell out in minutes; long lines likely at Apple stores

Checking for an iPhone X in stock takes seconds and it could help you find the model you're looking for.

Apple has announced service pricing for the new iPhone X smartphone and it's not cheap. Apple didn't say how much it would charge for each fix like a broken button or water damage. And there's a good chance that if you want an iPhone X on launch day, you'll need to sit in line at a store.

If you're just waking up, you're too late: The iPhone X sold within minutes overnight.

Other models on Verizon's site, however, seemed to be delayed until the week of Thanksgiving while the 256GB "Space Gray" iPhone X was already seeing delays until December 1.

The most important iPhone upgrade in years is finally here.

Apple's flagship smartphone has been beset by production issues, leading Apple to advise customers to "arrive early" to its stores when the iPhone is officially released on November 3.

The screen replacement price is not the only expensive fix for the iPhone X. Any other out of warranty repairs will cost a whopping $549.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Gets Android 8.0 Oreo
The Galaxy Note 8 and S6 edge users can also check for the update manually by heading to Settings About Device System Updates. If you're not seeing the update just yet, just sit tight and wait for that OTA notification, which should be arriving soon.

The pre-orders of iPhone X kicked off at 12.30 pm in India which was the same as pre-orders open in Cupertino, California (12:01 am local time). The phone will be released on November 3.

Apple Stores and other retailers should have stock on hand, but there's no telling how much stock each store will have. The last has an online store and Apple Store app to handle orders. "Combining iPhone X with millions of Wi-Fi hotspots in the Xfinity Mobile network will allow our customers to push the limits of what's possible on a mobile phone without having to constantly worry about how much LTE data they are using".

"We can see from the initial response, customer demand is off the charts", an Apple spokeswoman told Reuters.

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.

Another major sacrifice/compensation is the lack of a home button on the iPhone X. To accommodate the full screen of iPhone X, Apple had to do away with their traditional home button; the single button on the front panel.

Previous year marked the slowest growth rate for the smartphone industry since it began, and Apple's iPhone sales dropped for four straight quarters. Royal Bank Of Canada upped their target price on Apple from $176.00 to $180.00 and gave the company an "outperform" rating in a research report on Friday, September 1st.

The Cupertino-based company said this new iPhone would "set the path for technology for the next decade". But it makes no difference as far as usage time is concerned between both devices (with the exception the iPhone 6s Plus will get you 25% more audio playback time, on average). Flipkart has already listed the device on their website with the respective price tags and a "Coming soon" sign.
