Pre-orders for the iPhone X are “off the charts”

The iPhone X is undoubtedly the most anticipated smartphone now and we are now so close to the launch day. Pre-orders for Apple’s latest flagship smartphone officially went live on October 27 following the September event. The iPhone X marks the biggest design change Apple has ever made on an iPhone, with a curved OLED display and all-glass back design.

With premium design and compelling features, the iPhone X will cost users up to $999 for the starting 64GB model, making it the most expensive iPhone ever made. However, it seems that the price tag doesn’t prevent customers from grabbing the phone on launch day.

According to Apple, pre-orders for the premium iPhone X are much more than the company expected. This comes as no surprise, as the iPhone X attracted a lot of attention when it was announced back in September. Sources say that Apple sold out its initial stock of iPhone X on the launch day, meaning that if you don’t pre-order the phone, you will need to wait a little bit longer to grab the phone.

Tech experts say that new orders for the iPhone X will ship in 5-6 weeks to meet strong demand for the phone this year. Some recent reports claim that Apple is planning to ship 25 million of iPhone X units this year, which is much lower than last year.

The shortfall of iPhone X has been widely rumored for months. Apple is said to deal with supply issues that force the company to push back the release date of the phone. Back in July, Apple’s sole OLED supplier, Samsung Display was having trouble producing OLED panels. The South Korean firm has been speeding up the production to meet Apple’s strong demand for OLED panels used on this year’s iPhone.

According to Apple, the iPhone X will be available for walk-in customers. Apple’s move aims to encourage customers to arrive at Apple Stores early on the launch day.
