Apple starts shipping first iPhone X orders to customers

This year, Apple unveiled three new iPhone models including iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The two standard iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have been available for over a month, while the premium iPhone X will hit stores on November 3. Apple is taking the pre-orders for the iPhone X ahead of the public release next month.

Some recent reports claim that the pre-orders for the premium iPhone X are off the chart, indicating strong demand for the device. Sources today say that Apple begun shipping the first iPhone X orders to customers worldwide ahead of the November release.

There is no official announcement from Apple, but sources claim that customers who placed their orders on October 27 can track their order statuses, as some big US-based carriers are sending shipping notifications to its customers. Sprint is the first carrier in the US that allows its customers to track their orders.

If you are one of those customers who want to grab the phone earlier this year, sorry because that’s not going to happen. Sources say that all orders for the iPhone X will arrive on the launch day, November 3.

Some recent reports say that the iPhone X will be available for walk-in customers on the launch day. Apple’s move aims to encourage customers to arrive at Apple Stores early on November 3. Sources say that Apple will have iPhone X models in stock at its own retail stores on the launch day. If you don’t pre-order the phone, make sure you stand in line in front of your local Apple Store on November 3.

For some background, the iPhone X marks the re-adoption of an all-glass back design that was once used on the iPhone 4. The biggest design change lies in a curved OLED display, offering more details and much better picture quality.
