Apple iPhone X pre-orders don’t start for a few weeks, but there are a few things you should do before the highly anticipated phone goes on sale.
iPhone X pre-orders are set to begin on October 27th ahead of a worldwide release on November 3rd. The iPhone 8 release date didn’t get much attention, but the iPhone X release date will likely be a spectacle due to production issues and the supply problems that will almost certainly plague the launch.
Apple hasn’t confirmed but reports have outlined the production delays Apple and the iPhone X are facing ahead launch. According to the most recent report, final production of the iPhone X has yet to begin. That’s a huge problem for Apple and those looking to buy this phone in 2017.

We’ve put together a guide that will assist you in your quest to pickup Apple’s $1000 iPhone. If you take some steps before the iPhone X goes on sale you’ll be in great shape when Apple puts its next iPhone on sale in the United States and countries around the world.
Go Hands-on With the iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus
One thing you'll want to do before the iPhone X goes on sale is go hands-on with Apple's two other iPhones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The iPhone X is the flagship, but the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are more than capable. iPhone 7 users probably shouldn't upgrade to either model, but those of you using older iPhones might want to consider making a move.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are widely available in Apple stores and in retail locations like Best Buy in the buildup to the iPhone X release. If you have a few minutes or a few hours to spare on an upcoming weekend, go and check them out.
Some of you might leave the store with a new phone. Others will go home feeling more confident about the decision to buy the iPhone X.
