IPhone X Sold Out in Minutes as Pre-Booking Begun on Friday

If you want the iPhone X in a hurry, the only way to get one will be to visit an Apple store early next Friday and pray there'll be enough in stock.

A separate report in the Nikkei Asian Review claims Apple's annual output for the iPhone X will be around half of the 20 million units it originally planned.

Preorders opened at 12:01 a.m. Only consumers who pre-ordered within the first 10 minutes of the pre-order window, which began at 12:01 a.m. P.T. on Friday, secured shipping dates of November 3, when the device will appear in stores, according to CNET. Customers will be able to pre-order iPhone X from October 27 at HCL Infosystems' partner stores, and it will be available in stores starting on November 3. The iPhone X lacks Touch ID and replaces it with Apple's new Face ID facial recognition system.

The premium phone becomes available for pre-order in 55 geographies today; a launch that's been overshadowed by rumors about production bottlenecks, which will likely affect supply for a long time to come. The iPhone X starts at $999, £999 or AU$1,579 for the 64GB model, while the 256GB iPhone X costs $1,149, £1,149 or AU$1,829.

Cellphone carriers have similar offers. The phone is part of the tenth anniversary of the iPhone.

Some of us are phone-case people and some of us aren't. Like the iPhone 8 series devices, it boasts wireless charging capability and augmented reality technology.

James Comey reveals his (not so) secret Twitter account
All six of the tweets Comey has written since he joined Twitter in February 2014 include photos-most of which are scenic. In an earlier tweet , Comey is pictured standing in a cornfield with the caption: 'Good to be back in Iowa'.

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.

"I'm stopping short of calling it game-changing", said Patrick Moorhead, a tech industry analyst at Moors Insights Strategy. The resolution of the iPhone X's screen is a breathtaking 5.8in 2436 x 1125-pixels at 458 ppi edge-to-edge display.

As for the design of the phone, Moorhead sees it as "what all phones will be in the future".

Apple's newest iPhone is nearly here.

During the Apple Special Event 2017, the first event ever held in the Steve Jobs Theater, Cook took the stage to take the wraps off the "future of the smartphone", and notably, he called it the iPhone "ten".

"The iPhone X is an extremely sought-after product". After all these offers and cashback, the price of the iPhone X "effectively" comes down to as low as Rs 26,288. "To actually get your hands on an iPhone between now and the holiday season is going to be an impressive feat".
