Just ten minutes after Apple has accepted pre-orders for its 10th anniversary flagship iPhone X on October 27, the initial supplies were reportedly sold out.
CNET reported that it only took 10 minutes for some iPhone X models to start showing up with a shipping time of two or three weeks. But after just half an hour, all models from U.S. carriers displayed delivery times of up to five weeks.
In the UK and Australia, people who would like to receive the latest unit will have to wait for another five to six weeks.
According to analysts, this does not necessarily mean there’s massive demand yet for the new flagship model. And we have every reason to believe so, because Apple has not issued statements on just how big the initial supply is.
AppleInsider quoted analysts who suggested the initial run would be around two to three million units. The iPhone 6 sold more than 10 million units in its first weekend of release.
With iPhone X, Apple officially adopted Face ID facial recognition in lieu of its Touch ID home button. The new device also integrated a new OLED screen that stretches across the front of the display.
The most talked about feature of the new iPhone X is its price tag starting at $999 for the 64GB model. The 256GB iPhone X costs $1,149.
How about you, do you think the $1,000 price tag of the iPhone X will convince you to buy one for yourself?
